Donald Trump warned Brad Raffensperger that “it’s very dangerous” disputing his claims that there was fraud involved in the 2020 Georgia election results.
One might ask “why would it be dangerous?
I mean, in the normal course of events in American politics, if one were involved with a dispute over election results one might expect to be hauled into court to present your case and await a judge’s decision. If you are on the losing side of that decision, where’s the danger in that, what, is the judge gonna fly down from his perch and beat you about the head with his gavel?
Knowing that not to be the case, Raffensperger understood Don Cornholeone’s words as a threat.
“I watched you this morning, and you said there was no criminality,” Trump told Raffensperger, referring to a news conference in which the secretary of state had reiterated that no widespread voter fraud or other irregularities had occurred in Georgia. “All of this stuff is very dangerous stuff, when you talk about no criminality. I think it’s very dangerous for you to say that.”
And so would I.
And we would be right.
“After the election, my email, my cellphone was doxxed, and so I was getting texts [from] all over the country. And then eventually my wife started getting texts. Hers typically came in sexualized texts, which were disgusting,” Raffensperger said during the House Jan. 6 committee’s fourth public hearing, which focused on threats against state and local election officials in the wake of the 2020 presidential election.
The only question I have here is: did the Dumpy Don know that merely his incessant whining on social media about how that big meanie Raffensperger was giving him swirlies would be enough to set his brown shirts into a disgusting text messaging frenzy, or did he direct someone in his crew to make sure the Georgia Secretary of State understood his message?
I sure wish our Attorney General would get his ass back from Ukraine and set his boys in the FBI to finding out.
