State officials have deprived the Michigan legislature of committee seats after issuing a “warning” to the President TrumpDonald TrumpTrump elects Conway, Chao, to government positions in the declining days of the administration. Pelosi, Schumer hit Trump, but cite “progress” in COVID’s aid record talks. The GOP leader of the House is trolling the Democrats with a reduced majority MORE and others.
Secretary of State Cynthia Johnson (D) posted a number of Facebook posts over the weekend that targeted and harassed people from all over the country. Some of your social media posts contained voicemail files that contained deadly threats.
One caller told the black lawmaker he was “hanging on a gallows” for aggressively interrogating Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, at last week’s hearing on allegations of voter fraud.
In separate Facebook posts posted this week, Johnson said it was “enough” and told the president’s supporters to “be careful” and “walk easily.”
“And for those of you who are soldiers, you know how to do it. Do it well. Be okay. Force them to pay,” Johnson told The Detroit News.
In another post on Wednesday, Johnson called for “ascension” “soldiers against racism” and “hatred of women.”
State House Speaker Lee Chatfield (R) condemned Johnson’s remarks and said they would take their seats in House Agriculture; Supervision; and committees for families, children, and the elderly.
“Threats to Democrats or Republicans are unacceptable and not American,” Chatfield said. “Elected officials are even better. Representative Johnson has been stripped of his committees, and we are investigating further disciplinary proceedings as the appropriate authorities conduct their investigations.”
The threat to Democrats or Republicans is unacceptable and not American. They are even more inseparable from an elected official.
