Chris Krebs hints at legal action against Trump campaign lawyer who suggested he be 'shot'

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Omaha Steve (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: Axios

Former CISA Director Chris Krebs is hinting at legal action against Trump campaign lawyer Joe DiGenova, who suggested Krebs should be "taken out at dawn and shot."

...

The big picture: DiGenova made the comment on Monday during an interview on Newsmax with host Howie Carr.

Krebs responded to DiGenova's comments in an interview with the Today Show on Tuesday, stating, "It's certainly more dangerous language, more dangerous behavior."

"And the way I look at it is that we are a nation of laws, and I plan to take advantage of those laws. I've got an exceptional team of lawyers that win in court, and I think they're probably going to be busy."

1. You're god damn right he should take legal action!!

These farkwads who are fomenting violence MUST be held to account. They cannot be out there talking about shooting, lynching and putting people's heads on pikes without some serious consequence.

24. Damn right

If legal charges can't be brought, I hope a civil suit succeeds. At the very least disbarrment and blackballed from every state from acting as a lawyer should be leveled.

The Trumplodytes get away with posting about violence. Proudbois or Bugaloos or some Qanan nut is going to take it as a directive. Again.

8. see thats the difference.

Krebbs is a republican and wont hesitate to punch back. Its about time fellow democrats adopt the same tactics instead of taking the high road and letting go. Bury them in lawsuits, force them.to defend.

35. it is not an unrelated shot, he/she is right, Democrats need to start pushing hard

At the end of the day we know that republicans are cowards, they are just bullies and bullies run when confronted, so I agree with that, Democrats needs to start pushing hard against these assholes, make them think twice before they utter their nonsense.

9. I hope this is successful

Someone needs to put the foot down on "threats" and not keep laughing it off as "hyperbole" or "a joke". We have seen a number of liberal voices silenced form the airwaves for a fraction of this type of nonsense.

13. Words have consequences.

Christopher Krebbs has every right to seek legal action against DeGenova. This is a threat, a call to action for a Trump nutcase to take things into their own hands.

How many times are we going to hear this shit?

"It was just locker room talk."

"I'm sorry you took offense at that."

"Wow! Cant you guys take a joke?"

There is nothing funny about inciting violence against someone who told the truth.

This is how dictatorships are run.

He shouldn't get a pass.
