January 6 Committee Democrats Say They Fear Trump Will Put Them in Jail

via LiveNOW from FOX

House Democrats who led the investigation into January 6th say they are worried about their safety and the possibility of arrest if Trump is reelected.

Members like Schiff, Aguilar, and Lofgren expressed concerns to CBS about Trump’s social media posts threatening jail for those on the committee.

“My wife and I have had conversations about what life would look like if the worst happened… . You can’t avoid the conversations about ‘What if?’ And I have to think about my own personal safety,” Rep. Adam Schiff said.

Former Capitol police officers Fanone and Dunn, who testified about January 6th, also said they could be targets of any effort by Trump to “weaponize” the DOJ.

A Trump spokeswoman dismissed their concerns as a “lie” and said Biden, not Trump, threatens democracy.

“He’s going to weaponize the Department of Justice…and use it to go after people like myself… . He’s telling us exactly what he plans on doing,” former D.C. Police Officer Michael Fanone said.

“Anybody who has testified against him, or spoken out in a public capacity, should be worried,” former U.S. Capitol Police officer Harry Dunn said. The threat of arrest “is a little scary to think about, but you have to continue to do the right thing.”
