Michael Fanone delivered a letter to Marjorie Taylor Greene’s office – and it included a dire warning

In a letter delivered on Wednesday to Republican House of Representatives leaders, former Metropolitan Police Officer Michael Fanone—who is well-known for his testimony at the opening Jan. 6 Committee hearing in July—asked them to condemn political violence in honor of the attack on the Capitol’s second anniversary.
Over 1,000 members of law enforcement, active military, veterans, and military families also signed the letter, according to the Associated Press.

In the letter, “several incidents of politically motivated violence, including the attack on an FBI office in Ohio following the FBI search of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate and the attack on the husband of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, as well as threats and comments calling for her execution,” are detailed, according to the AP.

James Comer of Kentucky, Majorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, Jim Jordan of Ohio, Kevin McCarthy of California, Steve Scalise of Louisiana, and Elise Stefanik of New York were among the key Republicans to whom the letter was personally given.
The non-governmental group’s Courage for America and Common Defense organized the in-person journey to stop fresh acts of violence motivated by politics. The letter is their initial effort to get prominent Republicans to explicitly condemn anyone who uses violence to express their political views or conveys such views.

An early turning point in the Committee hearings on January 6 was Fanone’s statement of being accosted and physically abused. Since then, right-wing supporters of former president Donald Trump have repeatedly threatened his life.
