Outside the White House, one of Donald Trump’s closest allies was caught on camera with a paper in his hand that looked to advocate for martial law.
The Washington Post’s photographer Jabin Botsford caught My Pillow’s CEO, Michael Lindell, on camera as he was entering the West Wing of the White House; Botsford subsequently released the photographs online.
Lindell has folded the paper over in the images, so only part of the text can be seen. However, one phrase reads: “… martial law if necessary upon the first suggestion of any….”

While in uniform or out of uniform, all members of the United States Army have a responsibility to uphold the Constitution and the laws of the United States.

After losing the election, President Donald Trump surrounded himself with advisers, lawyers, and seemingly random people who were prepared to give him suggestions.
The radical nature of some of those concepts becomes increasingly clear to us. Some suggestions appeared to be taken more seriously by the president than others.
