MSNBC – Evaluating the Terror Threat Around Elections

On Tuesday, September 8, 2020, Katy Tur spoke with former FBI Special Agent Frank Figliuzzi and Chris Sampson about the pending threats around the 2020 Election. 

Online chatter and real world comments indicated there was a serious threat of retribution if Trump legitimately loses the election. As Trump consistently told his supporters there is only one way he would lose, a rigged and stolen election. His supporters then feel no other possibility exists. This has created an unparalleled threat problem with talk of violence.
