Donald Trump let loose the hounds of hell upon America when the nation voted him out. He set virtual IEDs all throughout the nation’s government to go off after he is forced out of office. Plus, he has been ginning up his base to violent actions. Trump even flew in the Marine One helicopter over the Pro-Trump Proud Boy rally in Washington to express his gratitude.

The Michigan state House Republican caucus and leaders just released a joint statement announcing that they had pulled state Representative Gary Eisen’s (R) committee assignments for the remainder of the year for threatening violent acts.

House Speaker Lee Chatfield (R-Levering) and Rep. Jason Wentworth (R-Farwell) who will be the speaker in the next term said according to The Detroit News:

‘We as elected officials must be clear that violence has no place in our democratic process. We must be held to a higher standard.’

Eisen claimed that the Republicans “have a Hail Mary” to try on Monday against the Democratic electors who will be coming to the Michigan Capitol to cast their votes for President-elect Joe Biden. The governor closed the building to outsiders due to threats of violence and to the state’s open-carry law. In other words, protesters can legally carry guns.

Michigan law states that its 16 electoral votes must go to the certified popular vote winner. Biden won the state by 154,000 votes, and the results were certified on Nov. 23.

The state representative did not go into details about what that Hail Mary longshot would be. Lansing radio host Paul Miller interviewed Eisen and asked the representative:

‘Can you assure me that this is going to be safe day in Lansing, nobody’s going to get hurt?’

The answer was startling:

‘No. I don’t know because what we’re doing today is uncharted. It hasn’t been done.’

The representative continued:

‘[In Lansing on Monday] a historic event will be all over the news later on.’

Travis Akers of The Huffington Post tweeted the breaking news:

#BREAKING: Michigan Rep. Gary Eisen (R) has been removed from all committee assignments for the remainder of his term after encouraging violence and intimidation during a radio interview this morning.’

In the middle of the radio interview with Eisen, the host said there was a “bomb threat phoned in from Wisconsin. The interview continued.

Eisen then indicated he might try to get into the Capitol building Monday:

‘I’m on a football team. We have one more play. Am I just going to give up or am I going to do that Hail Mary? Will it change the outcome of the election? Probably not.’

This is the lawmakers’ announcement in its entirety:
