(bigleaguepolitics)A controversial Detroit Democrat state legislator was stripped of her committee assignments in the Michigan Legislature after releasing a video that appeared to threaten Donald Trump supporters concerned with issues of election integrity in the state on Wednesday.
Rep. Cynthia Johnson had contemptuously dismissed election fraud whistleblowers and Trump supporters during a legislative hearing on the process of the 2020 election last week. After receiving backlash for her unprofessional conduct, she released a video in which she implied the use of far-left Democrat thugs to dismiss Americans who demand transparency.

Johnson claimed she was being harassed and receiving threatening phone calls, but her punitive video shows her to be just as responsible for creating a violent atmosphere as anyone else.

“This is a warning to you Trumpers: Be careful. Walk lightly. We ain’t playing with you. Enough of the shenanigans,” Johnson said.
“Enough is enough and for those of you who are soldiers, you know how to do it. Do it right. Be in order. Make them pay,” concluded the ominous warning.
Speaker of the Michigan House of Representatives Lee Chatfield announced that Johnson had been removed from her legislative committee assignments on Wednesday, a day after Johnson recorded and released the threatening video.
Threats to Democrats or Republicans are unacceptable and un-American. They’re even more unbecoming of an elected official. Rep. CA Johnson has been stripped of her committees and we’re looking into further disciplinary action as the proper authorities conduct their investigation. pic.twitter.com/Y5lTqqmEVI

Johnson had threatened on Twitter to carry out third-world style purges of Trump supporters from society earlier in the week, yet she acts as if she’s the one being terrorized.
No wonder countless Americans have serious doubts about the veracity of the 2020 presidential election, with militant, belligerent Democrats such as Johnson staffing numerous city and municipal election offices in Detroit.
