MSNBC contributor Frank Figliuzzi said Monday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that the “cult” following of former President Donald Trump was manifesting in Arizona Republicans recounting 2020 ballots which he said was like burning “the compound down.”
Anchor Nicolle Wallace said, “The story is on the front page of The New York Times and not the first thing I read, but I was horrified. Most of the people that bended and yielded to this demand for, I think, what is a fourth recount of the recounted votes were threatened. Their lives were threatened, their children were threatened, their spouses were threatened, and homes under 24-hour police protection. I wonder where this is where we are that the extremists demand audits where none is needed?”
Figliuzzi said, “This is audit by intimidation. County sheriffs parked themselves in front of officials’ houses because they have been threatened if they did not comply.
