Donald Trump’s hit-squad spews death threats at Colorado GOP chair and Indiana delegates

Published

on

If you think Donald Trump’s campaign rallies are violent what’s happening online is spiraling out of control too. Trump supporters have turned their rage to the chair of the Colorado Republican Party as well as Republican delegates in Indiana.

Colorado GOP Chair Steve House posted on his Facebook page that he has received over 3,000 calls to his home, some of which were death threats. Trump supporters evidently blame House, not Colorado law, for running a caucus instead of a primary and have posted House’s personal information online. Trump has had more success in primary states, so the fans are turning their anger to party officials.

COLORADO-GOPCHAIR

In Indiana, Republican delegates are incurring the wrath of Trump supporters after some of them expressed reservations about Trump, according to the IndyStar. Delegates received threatening emails warning that they are being watched and implied they could be targeted. Some of the Trump supporters even sent intimidating notes to the families of the delegates as well.

“You sorry (expletive)!” GOP delegate Craig Dunn said he got via email. “I hope the worst for you and yours!”

“Little did I know that in expressing your 1st Amendment rights, that they’d come after you so hard,” he said. “It’s very disappointing. I probably received 25 to 30 hate emails, phone calls and voice mails, posts on Facebook that I deleted. Now they’re hunting down friends of mine and posting that kind of stuff on their Facebook pages.”

After criticizing Trump in a Politico article over the weekend, Trump’s attackers struck Dunn as well as others quoted hard.

“Wrong side Kyle,” said one email to delegate Kyle Babcock. “Hope the families well. Your name and info was sent to me on a list that is going public. Think before you take a step down the wrong path, the American people want to have faith in your  but it looks like a future in hiding is more appealing.”

The same person who wrote to Kyle also attacked Tom John, chairman of Indiana’s 7th Congressional District. “You know traditional burial is polluting the planet. Tom hope the family is well,” the email said. “Your name and info has been given to me on a list that is about to go public. Good luck becoming a delegate, we are watching you.”

As of posting this story Twitter has not removed any of the doxed information.

UPDATE: Indiana state police say they are reviewing the threats, IndyStar reports.

“What I can share with you at this time is information has been referred to the Indiana State Police that alleges threatening emails have been sent to some Indiana delegates that will be participating in the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio,” Capt. David Bursten, a state police spokesman, told the Star. “Presently the Indiana State Police is reviewing the information to determine if it may cross the line of free speech and could be considered criminal in nature.”

Donald Trump’s big short: Is the president profiting off the market chaos he creates?

Published

on

Back in early 2018, I noticed something hinky about the confluence of Donald Trump’s blurts about his trade war with the movement of the stock market. As I wrote in this space back in August, I believe Trump or people close to Trump might be profiting off the volatility of the markets ever since the president first declared a trade war against our allies and frenemies alike.

Since the passage of the 2009 stimulus, and with the exception of 2015, the markets have been mostly climbing steadily, in a relatively smooth upward slope. This ascending trajectory continued through the first year of Trump’s presidency until suddenly we began to observe harrowing single-day declines — volatility in the form of precipitous collapses of as much as 1,175 points in the Dow.

Trump Jr. and McGahn didn’t testify before the Mueller grand jury — and a federal judge wants to know why

Published

on

During the Russia investigation, former special counsel Robert Mueller sought testimony from a long list of people. But according to a court filing on Sunday, two people who Mueller did not force to testify before a grand jury were Donald Trump Jr. and former White House Counsel Don McGahn. And U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell wants to know why.

The court filing on Sunday, according to The Week, was in response to a ruling Howell made on Thursday — when Howell asserted that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) was withholding too much information from the House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York. The House Judiciary Committee, The Week’s Peter Weber reports, has been “wrangling” with DOJ over the evidence that Mueller obtained during his lengthy investigation.

Internet rains hell on Trump for comparing his impeachment to a ‘lynching’: ‘How dare you’

Published

on

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump furiously took time Twitter, blasting the effort to impeach him over the Ukraine scandal as a "lynching" and threatening that a future Republican Congress will cook up charges against a Democratic president.

Trump's outburst did not impress many commenters on social media, who quickly dogpiled him in criticism and mockery:

You are seriously comparing your impeachment to hate crimes against African-Americans?
