There has been much speculation about the moves outgoing US President Trump will take before President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. He continues to resist the results of the November 2020 elections. Now, opponents fear that a series of candid photos of a White House loyalist may hint at what he might be up to During the next hours.
This came after Mike Lindell, chief executive of pillow maker May Bello and a longtime ally of Trump, appeared in the White House with a set of notes that appeared to call for martial law imposition in the United States.
Lyndel has been a staunch defender of President Trump’s theory that the election was rigged in favor of his Democratic opponent, Joseph Biden. On his Facebook page on Friday, Lindel called on Trump supporters to “preserve the faith,” adding, “We will have our President Donald Trump 4 more years!”
Then, later, a Washington Post photographer snapped photos of Lendl as he was leaving a meeting with President Trump at the White House on Friday, January 15th. Al-Jamal, “Mutiny now as a result of an attack on…”, “Martial Law if Needed,” and “Cash Patel Transferred to the CIA.” The document also refers to the phrase “martial law,” which says, “… martial law if necessary at the first hint of any …”.
Patel’s development came on the heels of the Axios revelation that the current CIA director, Gina Haspel, had threatened to quit her post in early December after discovering that President Trump planned to install Patel as her deputy. Reportedly, only “last-minute inventions” from Vice President Pence and others were also able to prevent the CIA chief from giving up her position.

While the details of Lyndel’s meeting with Trump are still mysterious, a report issued by the “Washington Examiner” newspaper said that he had met Trump and his lawyer for about 10 minutes in the Oval Office. Trump reportedly read the document that filmed Lyndale holding it and then returned it to him. But Lindell denied that he wrote “martial law” on the document and said, “I didn’t write that. That was a lawyer. I was just a messenger. I just delivered that.” However, according to a report in The New York Times, an administration official claimed that the notes “definitely indicate martial law.”
Other close associates of President Trump had earlier floated the idea of imposing martial law in the event he is defeated by Biden, including the 2016 presidential campaign advisor Roger Stone and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
CNN’s chief White House correspondent, Jim Acosta, claimed in a tweet that he had spoken to Lyndel about the notes. According to Acosta, while Lindel admits that he met President Trump on Friday, January 15th, “he also claimed that the phrase” martial law “does not appear in the document despite the photos.”
Reporters monitoring Lendl’s movements were widely quoted as saying that he entered the West Wing at 3:05 PM. On Friday, January 15th, upon his exit, he refused to answer questions other than saying, “I’m sure you’ll write something nice.”
