By Allan Lengel

“MyPillow Guy,” aka CEO Mike Lindell, tells Insider that four businesses that were set to be listed on his MyStore e-commerce platform have pulled out of the plan after the FBI seized his phone at a Hardee’s drive-thru in Mankato, Minnesota last week.

“You know, they don’t want to have the connection of the FBI. The FBI scares them,” Lindell tells the publication. “They don’t want to get canceled, you know?”

The FBI seized his phone in connection with an investigation into Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters, a pro-Trump Colorado election official accused of facilitating an election-data leak, Insider reports.

MyStore, which launched in 2021, is supposed to be Lindell’s “patriotic” answer to Amazon. It offers a variety of products for sale.

On Tuesday, Lindell filed a lawsuit against the FBI and the Department of Justice for seizing his phone and accused the authorities of violating his constitutional rights, The Insider reports.

Former FBI Director James Comey is trying his hand at something new and familiar – fiction writing. 

Comey announced Tuesday that he’s set to publish his first of two novels in the spring. 

Comey has a deal to publish two novels for Mysterious Press. 

The first, titled “Central Park West,” features an assistant U.S. attorney who investigates the mafia’s ties to the murder of a local politician. 

“I’m excited to take readers inside fascinating worlds I’ve come to know from my time in government and the private sector,” Comey said in a statement.

“These stories are fiction, but, inspired by real work I’ve done, they will offer a rarely-seen view of interesting people and institutions.”

Comey wrote two nonfiction books, A Higher Loyalty and Saving Justice

An Arizona man accused of threatening to kill a Border Patrol agent and smuggle undocumented migrants was indicted earlier this month, the Justice Department said Tuesday.

Jesus Alberto Ibarra-Barraza, 31, of Tucson, was indicted by a grand jury on an eight-count indictment. 

According to the indictment, Ibarra-Barraza tried to transport four undocumented noncitizens in his vehicle. 

When he was pulled over by law enforcement, he stopped his car so the passengers could exit and then fled at a high rate of speed before he crashed his vehicle. 

He was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. 

At the hospital, Ibarra-Barraza threatened to kill a Border Patrol agent once he was released, according to the indictment.  

Border Patrol investigated the case.
