MyPillow guy's White House notes caught on camera, reveal plan to keep Trump in office

The infomercial icon visited the White House Friday.

Though President Donald Trump has effectively conceded the 2020 election, one of his biggest supporters from Minnesota apparently has a plan to keep him in office.

On Friday, MyPillow CEO and infomercial icon Mike Lindell was spotted outside the White House for a meeting with Trump, where a Washington Post photographer got a good look at the documents he was carrying:

Further analysis of those documents gives a strong hint at what the meeting was about. As the Post reports, they mention the Insurrection Act, "martial law" and other tactics being floated by some Trump allies seeking to overturn the election. 

However, according to CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta, Lindell "claimed the words 'martial law' do not appear in the documents" despite the photographs that emerged on Friday.

But Lindell did confirm that he met with Trump for five minutes and "offered what he described as evidence of election fraud," Acosta says:

This comes a day after the businessman announced on Facebook that "we will have our president Donald Trump 4 more years!":

Lindell, whose pillow empire is based in Shakopee, has been a staunch ally of the president, and since the election, has promulgated conspiracy theories about widespread voter fraud. Last month, he called on Trump to impose martial law in Minnesota and other states where there were alleged voting irregularities. 

Lindell is widely thought to be considering a run for Minnesota governor in 2022.
