Lindell Vows To Take McCarthy To Supreme Court Over Jan. 6 Footage

My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell has promised to fight Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and even take him to court over his exclusive deal to provide security footage of the January 6 Capitol protests to Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

During an appearance on Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast, Lindell argued that it wasn’t right to only allow Carlson to see the footage.

“Well, we’re not going to sit back and let that happen,” he said.

Lindell, who has become a star in the conservative movement, was then asked why he was making this battle over the January 6 footage a priority.

He responded by noting that it was an issue of both access and principle.

“Well, because number one, Fox is going to sift through it and only put out what they want. I’m tired of breaking our constitutional rights. We have to stand up at everything,” Lindell said.

“I don’t know why the media’s not going after him,” he added, noting that his Lindell TV should be given the chance to view and air the footage.

Lindell went on to argue that “we’re injured by not having access” — stating that Carlson’s exclusive deal amounts to “discrimination by the speaker.”

He also suggested that McCarthy’s decision is essentially a “cover-up,” saying that he initially planned to “go after” Fox News to get the footage — but after a “big meeting” with lawyers, they decided to take the fight to McCarthy and Congress.

“It’s like a cover-up, why does just Fox get this? So they can cover this up even more? It’s disgusting. All of us, including ‘War Room,’ we all need to see what’s on those tapes, and we need to see all of them. We need to go through them, we’re the press, too,” Lindell said.

“There’s a lot of cover-up going on, where the two even tie together out there. The lawyers, we were going to go after Fox to get it, and the lawyers — yesterday, we had a big meeting, and they said, ‘no, we’re going to go right after the speaker, right after Congress,’” he added.

Lindell then vowed to take the fight to the highest level, the Supreme Court, arguing that McCarthy’s decision was just another action that violated Americans’ constitutional rights.

“We’re gonna run this all the way to the Supreme Court. I’m tired of the violation of our constitutional rights, Steven,” Lindell continued.

Meanwhile, several media organizations have also demanded access to the footage — including outlets that previously sided with the Democrats in claiming that the footage should remain hidden, expressing fears that it would supposedly be a risk to national security if it was released. Advance Publications, ABC News, Axios, CBS News, CNN, Scripps, Gannett, the Los Angeles Times, Politico, and ProPublica are the outlets that have demanded the footage.
