Krebs files lawsuit against Trump attorney who said he should be shot


Quote:
The former head of U.S. cybersecurity, Christopher Krebs, on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against the Trump campaign lawyer who suggested that he should be “shot.”

The suit accuses attorney Joe diGenova and the Trump campaign of defamation and inflicting emotional distress, The New York Times reported. He alleges that he received death threats in tweets and emails, which forced him and his family to leave their home.

The lawsuit comes one week after Krebs said he was looking at “legal opportunities” over diGenova's comments.

The attorney suggested that Krebs should be “taken out at dawn and shot” during an interview on “The Howie Carr Show.”

DiGenova has since claimed the comment was “in jest,” and told The Washington Post last week that he meant it as a joke.

The suit filed on Tuesday alleges that the president, his reelection team and Newsmax have been engaging in “a calculated and pernicious conspiracy” to defame Krebs and others in the Republican Party who have pushed back against the president’s false claims of voter fraud, according to the Times.

Krebs, along with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), released a statement after the election with other election officials that determined the 2020 election had been the most secure in U.S. history.

Following the statement, reports surfaced that Krebs anticipated being terminated from his post. And several days later, he was fired by Trump and the president took to Twitter to allege that Krebs's statement on election security was "inaccurate."

Krebs has stood by his assertion in interviews and statements since.

The suit argues that defendants “have a symbiotic relationship,” according to the newspaper. The filing further alleges that Newsmax amplified the campaign’s attacks on the election process, which in turn “pleases viewers, prompts endorsements from President Trump, increases ratings, supports the political goals of the campaign, and helps raise more money from duped supporters.”

The suit states that Trump has hit Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) for not agreeing to help overturn election results in those states.

It also states that Trump and his legal team have been trying to persuade GOP leaders in states like Pennsylvania to “ignore certified election results” and have state lawmakers appoint delegates to the Electoral College.

Krebs is seeking monetary damages, and is asking for the video of the Trump campaign lawyer to be removed.

Newsmax argued in a statement to The Hill that "claims made by Mr. Krebs in his suit of a 'conspiracy' and defamation against him are a threat to free speech and his legal action endangers all media organizations that seek an open discourse of ideas and news."

Indictment unsealed in alleged plot to blow up Democratic headquarters

The Justice Department on Thursday night unsealed an indictment against two California men who allegedly conspired to blow up Democratic headquarters in Sacramento, California.

Ian Rogers and Jarrod Copeland were allegedly inspired by the unfounded belief that the 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald Trump, the court documents say.

When investigators searched Rogers' house in January, he allegedly had five pipe bombs, which court documents say were live. They also allegedly seized between 45 and 50 firearms, including at least three fully automatic weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition.

In text messages obtained by investigators and included in the federal indictment, Rogers and Copeland allegedly laid out their plan to bomb the building.

"I want to blow up a Democrat building bad," Rogers wrote, according to the indictment.

They then discussed their target and Rogers said he was "thinking sac office first target," to which Copeland agreed.

"I agree. Plan attack," Copeland said, according to the court documents.

As the exchange concluded, Rogers allegedly wrote: "Let’s see what happens after the 20th we go to war."

Shortly after Rogers was arrested in January, court documents say that Copeland contacted a militia group that Rogers allegedly belonged to, and the group instructed Copeland to destroy his phone.

Rogers and Copeland were previously charged federally via criminal complaint for allegedly possessing explosive devices and wanting to go after Democrats, but the complaint did not mention a planned attack on the Sacramento Democratic headquarters.

According to the complaint, investigators found a Three Percenters sticker on Rogers' truck. The FBI has said the Three Percenters is a "radical militia group" with ties to the Capitol siege. Investigators also said they found a "White Privilege Card."

A lawyer for Rogers declined to comment, and Copeland's lawyer could also not be reached.

The special agent who authored the complaint wrote that he believes the messages show an intent to cause violence to prevent now-President Joe Biden from assuming office.

Rogers also discussed plans to attack Twitter and Facebook for banning Trump and possibly California Gov. Gavin Newsom.

He faces additional weapons and explosives charges in Napa County.

"I hope 45 goes to war if he doesn’t I will," Rogers allegedly wrote.

ABC News' Mike Levine contributed to this report.




Here is another right wing hater...

Northern California Man Arrested with Weapons Cache, Bullets Inscribed with ‘Cop Killer,’ and Desire for Genocide


Quote:
Wesley Martines (via Campbell Police)

A Northern California man arrested with a cache of weapons, drugs, and bomb-building materials had a handwritten manifesto indicating that he wanted to target Black, Hispanic, and Jewish people.

Wesley Charles Martines, 32, of the northern California town of Los Gatos, was charged with possession of assault weapons, silencers, drugs, and the makings of a pipe bomb, the Santa Clara district attorney’s office said in a press release Thursday.

Martines was arrested after a business owner called police just after midnight on July 9, saying his security camera picked up a man “prowling” in the area, looking into cars and a storage shed. Police, suspecting a burglary, responded and stopped a truck being driven by Martines.

“In his car they found bullets inscribed with such phrases as ‘Cop Killer,'” the DA’s statement said.

Officials also found a manifesto expressing a desire to commit genocide. According to a report by the East Bay Times, the manifesto depicted “violent scenarios/fantasies” and contained writings voicing the defendant’s desire to “wipe out the Black, Hispanic and Jewish populations.”

Pictures released by the Santa Clara police show multiple assault rifles inside a truck, along with a Glock handgun. Photos also show what appears to be a tactical vest containing multiple blades, and a U.S. flag attached at the top.


here is a more detailed link to even more about the two who wanted to kill dems. It was know at least from what I can tell Jan 15th. And only now being made public. So the trump wackos in the justice department did not want it known.

Threats against members of Congress are skyrocketing. It's changing the job

Quote:
A few months ago, Rep. Norma Torres (D-Pomona) received an anonymous video of someone following her car. The camera pans down to a 9mm handgun on the seat as a male voice says: "I see you. I got something for you."

In June, police charged a man with making "terroristic threats" against Rep. Tom Reed (R-N.Y.). The man left on the congressman's doorstep a dead rat with a noose around its neck and a brick with a family member's name.

Police intervened in January when more than a dozen Trump supporters confronted, surrounded and threatened Rep. Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana) as he was catching a flight at a Washington airport.

In a year that kicked off with the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, threats against lawmakers are soaring. In the first three months of 2021, Capitol Police recorded 4,135 threats against members of Congress. If that pace continues, total threats this year will double those in 2020.

It's a trend that has been growing for years, and Capitol Police are scrambling to keep pace. They're rethinking the ways they protect members in Washington and elsewhere, forging closer ties with the FBI and opening satellite offices outside the capital for the first time.

It's changing the job for lawmakers, who must tread a fine line between being accessible to the people they represent and keeping themselves, their families and their staffs safe. After Jan. 6, some members temporarily relocated their families over concerns that their homes would be targeted. Some wore bulletproof vests to the presidential inauguration.

“It's difficult, and particularly difficult for the family,” said Rep. John Garamendi (D-Walnut Grove), who as state legislator once had a gun pointed at him during a town hall. “There are risks in this job. There's no doubt about it. We spend millions of dollars to let everybody know who we are. So you become a target.”

Experts blame much of the increase on social media and cable news, and how easy it has become to threaten members of Congress behind the anonymity of the internet.

Four years of President Trump's divisive and racist rhetoric played a role, they say, emboldening people to say things publicly that they might have grumbled about privately in the past.

It's also a side effect of growing partisanship and declining civility. Members have contributed to the problem by sometimes encouraging their supporters to harass political rivals. And activists find it more acceptable to confront lawmakers, not just at town halls, but at the officials' homes or as they eat in restaurants.

Some threats have escalated into violent physical attacks.

Before Jan. 6, there was the 2017 shooting of Republican members of Congress and staff at a practice for the Congressional Baseball Game, and the 2011 shooting of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords at a constituent event.

The surge in threats has grown exponentially in recent years. In 2016, Capitol Police investigated 902 threats, former House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving said in a June 2017 letter to the Federal Election Commission. By 2018, there were 5,206 threats, and by 2020, there were 8,613, according to Capitol Police figures provided to the Los Angeles Times.
