STEPHEN BANNON (HOST): I got breaking news with the Mike Lindell. Mike, what's the breaking news? You've got something you're about to file, I know you're sending a letter, I think preserve your documents or you're talking about a suit that you got incoming. Can you get us up to speed on it?

MIKE LINDELL (GUEST): Yeah it's as everybody knows Kevin McCarthy and the gang released 44,000 hours from January 6th to exclusively Fox News. Well, we're not going to sit back and let that happen. This is our first amendment provision –

BANNON: But Mike, but hang on. Of all the fights we got in the world, of all the terrible things going on, we're fighting on every different front, they're giving 44,000 hours to Tucker because he's got the staff to do it. Of all the stuff that you're fighting everywhere, you're trying to get the machines out, you're running a company, you know, they're trying to destroy Mike Lindell. Why of all the fights that we got, why would you pick on the going up to – telling McCarthy he can't partner with Tucker?

LINDELL: Well because Fox, number one, Fox is going to sift through it and only put out what they want and I'm tired of them breaking our constitutional rights. We have to stand up with everything. Just because they're doing it everywhere, everything has to be addressed.

I don't know why the media's not going after them. We are, at Lindell TV, we're going after him for the First Amendment provision freedom of the press, we're injured by not having access and then the other thing is the Equal Protection clause, discrimination by the speaker. You don't just give it - it's like a cover-up.

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. And we need to go through them. We're the press too. We're - why would you - it doesn't even make sense and this also goes back to my lawsuits with Dominion and others.

There's a lot of cover-up going on where the two even kind of tie together out there but the lawyers say – we were going to go after Fox to get it and the lawyers, yesterday we had a big meeting and they said no we're going to go right after the Speaker, right after Congress, and I'll take it all the way up. I don't care if I don't get it there. We're going to run this all the way to the Supreme Court. I'm tired of our violations of our Constitutional rights, Steve. It's just not right, it's disgusting. 

BANNON: So you're saying that you want with Lindell TV, you'll put a team on it, but you want to see the tapes and videos the same time Fox sees it?


BANNON: You've got tons of respect for Tucker but just given everything that's going on in this situation, you want to lay your - you only trust your own lying eyes, right? You would want to see, you're from Missouri, you want to see all 41,000 hours. I don't want to see some sort of curated version of that. Is that what you're telling us? And you're prepared to go to court for that?

LINDELL: Yeah, that's right and I consider this even like a block, once again it's another block.
