Video: ABC News reveals death threats sent to Colorado GOP head by Trump supporters

threatsOn Wednesday, a Denver ABC News affiliate revealed just some of the many death threats sent to Colorado GOP Chairman Steve House.

One email, for example, tells House to hide his family.

ABC added:

“This does not have to do with Trump. This has everything to do with “the people” having a chance  to vote,” one email sent today read. “Stop being a j—–f and admit that the residents of Colorado SHOUT [to] have the chance to vote rather than a slim minority telling the residents of CO who they have to vote for. That is the real story here. Quit whining about all the calls and email you’re getting. It’s your job. If you don’t want it – RESIGN.”

“All I can say is pray you make it to Cleveland. The fix is in and the American people will eliminate anyone who gets in the way…” the email reads. “It would be in your best interest to take a stand and support the American People and trump [sic] or you are done. Trump goes independent to ride the nation of scum like you. I would be hiding all family members…Just check out social media.”

Additional emails and text messages to House threaten to release all of his personal information and use rather profane and derogatory language.

Here’s the ABC News report:

House told ABC local authorities are providing an extra watch on his home and office.  Online threads indicate protests are planned for both his home and the state GOP headquarters on Friday.

Here’s what House posted earlier this week:


Meanwhile, Trump supporters have engaged in a campaign to harass and intimidate GOP officials in the state, and have posted personal information, including addresses and phone numbers.
