LANSING, Mich. (WJRT) – A state representative from the Detroit area has been removed from all Michigan House committees after posting a video video perceived as threatening toward Republicans on Facebook.
State Rep. Cynthia Johnson posted the three-minute video Wednesday morning. She made several remarks in the video about hitting Republicans in the pocketbook.
Johnson ended with statements to President Donald Trump’s supporters to “watch out” and called for her “soldiers” to “make them pay.”
Republicans perceived the comments as threats of violence toward them. Johnson previously was targeted with threats of being lynched following a House Oversight Committee, where Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani argued that Michigan’s election results should be overturned.
