Mike Lindell, the inventor of My Pillow, is reportedly considering a run for governor of Minnesota and says he’s promised an endorsement by former President Trump.

The president has told him before that he would back his bid for governor of Minnesota, Lindell told The Associated Press.

“Mike, if you did it, I would get behind you,” Lindell said Trump told him last week when he visited the White House.

Lindell is among Trump’s most loyal supporters. He says he was an opening speaker at more than 60 Trump campaign rallies, and Trump often publicly praised him. And he was among those who argued the results of 2020 presidential, which Trump lost, were tainted by voter irregularities and fraud.

Lindell said Trump’s support help him win the Minnesota GOP nomination to challenge Democratic incumbent Tim Walz.

“Of course it would help,” he told the wire service. “Why wouldn’t it help? The guy was the best president in history.” 

But the political website Axios published a report on Monday headlined, “Mike Lindell moves the goalposts on a run for Minnesota governor.”

“Lindell told Axios that his focus is currently on proving his (baseless) claims of election fraud. He won’t make a decision until that fight is resolved.”

  • “Why would anybody want to run if they had the same machines with the election fraud?” Lindell said Friday.
  • “It will all get out there, and when it does, we’ll see what elections are going to have to be done with paper ballots and no machines. Otherwise, it doesn’t make sense to put in everybody’s resources and time.”

Axios concluded: “While he’s leaving the door open, Lindell’s comments create a path for bowing out.”

Lindell’s remarks to the AP came as Sarah Huckabee Sanders, a Trump administration press secretary and the daughter of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, announced her bid for the Arkansas governorship.

Her decision to run was not unexpected, as Sanders has long been supported in her political endeavors by Trump. She will face a primary field populated by multiple top Arkansas Republicans but is viewed as an early favorite. Republicans are expected to retain the Arkansas governorship.

Asa Hutchinson, the current GOP governor, cannot seek re-election because of term limits.

The outcome of her race is expected to show how much influence Trump still over the Republican Party. Trump won 62% of the state’s vote in November.

“She is very special special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job. I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas – she would be fantastic,” Trump tweeted when Sanders departed from the White House.

Cuomo’s troubles deepen as N.Y. attorney general seeks subpoena power in sex harassment probe

After a rollercoaster weekend of reversals, recriminations and apologies, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s legal troubles are deepening as New York’s top law enforcement officer prepares to secure subpoena powers to investigate allegations of sexual harassment.

Attorney General Letitia James, a Democrat, announced Sunday night she will deputize an outside law firm to investigate the allegations by two former Cuomo aides after the governor’s effort to fashion his own investigation led by a former federal judge backfired.

“We expect to receive a referral with subpoena power to investigate allegations of sexual harassment against the governor, in line with our demands and New York state law,” James said in a statement released on Twitter. “The referral would be made solely to the attorney general’s office.

“We will hire a law firm, deputize them as attorneys of our office, and oversee a rigorous and independent investigation.” 

The announcement came just hours after Cuomo, facing dual scandals involving sexual harassment and COVID-19-related nursing home deaths, issued an apology and conceded his behavior with some female aides may have been improper or made the women feel uncomfortable.

“I now understand that my interactions may have been insensitive or too personal and that some of my comments, given my position, made others feel in ways I never intended,” he said. “I acknowledge some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation. To the extent anyone felt that way, I am truly sorry about that.”

Cuomo insisted, however, he had never inappropriately touched or propositioned anyone.

The apology came as calls for an independent investigation mounted within his own Democratic Party, both locally and nationally.

“The women who have come forward with serious and credible charges against Governor Cuomo deserve to be heard and to be treated with dignity,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told Fox News, signaling the fallout from Cuomo’s scandals had stretched beyond Albany to Washington. “The independent investigation must have due process and respect for everyone involved.”

Rep. Lee Zeldin is pushing for disclosure of materials from the Jimmy Hoffa investigation

Decades after the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa, Rep. Lee Zeldin is pushing for the release of government documents related to the investigation.

The New York Republican has submitted a “Congressional Mandatory Declassification Review” to the Justice Department in pursuit of the public release of materials related to the Hoffa case, according to Fox News.

“We have a process in our country, once you get past 25 years or so, that items like this should be declassified and released publicly, and here we are, it’s been 45 years,” Zeldin said, according to the outlet. “You still have members of the Hoffa family, members of the Teamsters, and the public interest in this information. It is a message to let them know that Jimmy Hoffa has not been forgotten. His legacy lives on, and we will not rest until we get these answers.”

While some of the Hoffa FBI files have been partially divulged as the result of Freedom of Information suits lodged in past decades by Hoffa’s family and the Detroit Free Press, most  of the material continues to remain undisclosed, according to Fox News, which noted that the government made numerous redactions decades ago with authorities pointing to the ongoing probe at that time.

“We are not just pursuing reports with regards to the timeline of events, and information with regards to suspects who actually killed Jimmy Hoffa, but there is also evidence, we believe, that would be released, additional information that would point to Moscato’s dump,” Zeldin said.

Fox Nation’s program “Riddle,” which delves into the Hoffa matter, has reported about the claim that Hoffa’s remains were buried in a steel drum next to a mob-connected dump located in New Jersey, according to the outlet. 

“The property, the PJP Landfill, was co-owned by Genovese crime family mobster Phillip ‘Brother’ Moscato and businessman Paul Cappola,” according to Fox News. “The F.B.I. searched the landfill, known as ‘Moscato’s dump,’ a few months after Hoffa vanished, acting on a tip from mobster turned informant Ralph Picardo and other information gleaned from mafia wiretaps and information. Hoffa’s body was not found, but the exact spot where he allegedly remains buried was not dug up by authorities, because it rests a few feet from the dump’s property line and was technically not part of the search area.”

20 House Republicans cosponsoring bill to balance LGBT and religious liberty protections

Agroup of 20 House Republicans are cosponsoring legislation that aims to simultaneously protect LGBT individuals from discrimination while also protecting religious liberty.

“This country can accommodate both civil liberties for LGBT individuals & religious freedom,” Rep. Chris Stewart of Utah said in a statement included in a press release about the reintroduction of the Fairness for All Act. “We have wasted enough time, energy, and money fighting over who deserves which legal protections. It is time to define the federal protections for our LGBT and religious friends and neighbors.”

The House on Thursday passed a separate LGBT-related bill called the Equality Act that garnered support from only three GOP members.

The Fairness for All Act “codifies protections for LGBT individuals against discrimination in housing, employment, and other public accommodations while also including exemptions for religious institutions and employers that are not explicitly present in the Equality Act,” according to the Washington Free Beacon

Some people warn that the Equality Act poses a threat to religious liberty.

“The Equality Act is a license for the government to discriminate against Americans who seek to live out their faith in their schools, businesses, and communities,” First Liberty Institute President, CEO and Chief Counsel Kelly Shackelford said in a statement. “It guts the promise of the First Amendment that Congress shall make no law prohibiting the free exercise of religion. Unless the Senate intervenes, the Equality Act will strip out critical protections found in the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) — one of President Bill Clinton’s most lasting achievements.”
