Mike Lindell Says He's Planning to Sue Kevin McCarthy For Only Providing Jan 6 Footage to Tucker Carlson

My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell announced he plans to sue Republican Speaker Kevin McCarthy for only providing the January 6 footage exclusively to Tucker Carlson.

During an appearance on Thursday on Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast, Lindell said his streaming platform Lindell-TV plans to sue McCarthy, claiming the Speaker violated the First Amendment’s freedom of the press provision and the Fourteenth Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause.

Lindell said Lindell-TV was “injured by not having access” to the tapes, and McCarthy’s decision to provide the footage to Carlson represented discrimination.

“We’re not gonna sit back and let that happen,” Lindell told Bannon.

“Why does just Fox get this? So they can cover it 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.”

McCarthy provided Tucker with nearly 41,000 hours of Capitol surveillance footage from the Capitol riot.

“They’re serving papers this morning,” Lindell said. “It [J6 footage] needs to go to everybody so we can all look at it together!”

Mike Lindell vowed to “run this all the way to the Supreme Court” if he had to.

Watch

Democrats have long complained about the release of the footage and fought tooth and nail to keep it hidden because of what they claim was a “security risk” to the Capitol.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer accused McCarthy of “needlessly exposing the Capitol complex to one of the worst security risks since 9/11.”

“The footage Speaker McCarthy is making available to Fox News is a treasure trove of closely held information about how the Capitol complex is protected and its public release would compromise the safety of the Legislative Branch and allow those who want to commit another attack to learn how Congress is safeguarded,” Schumer added.

“The apparent transfer of video footage represents an egregious security breach that endangers the hardworking women and men of the United States Capitol Police, who valiantly defended our democracy with their lives at risk on that fateful day,” House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) said.

But McCarthy defended his decision to release the footage.

“I was asked in the press about these tapes, and I said they do belong to the American public. I think sunshine lets everybody make their own judgment,” McCarthy told the New York Times.
