Former Attorney General Eric Holder appeared on MSNBC’s “the ReidOut” and stated that the public should “be concerned” about what Trump will do after he loses.
A clip was played where John Heilemann stated that there was a possibility of Trump using law enforcement to intimidate voters and Joy Reid asked Holder, “Are you concerned about that, that these paramilitary forces will be used to suppress the vote using intimidation and fear?”
Holder responded saying, “I mean, if you’d asked me that question about any other president, I would say, of course not. That’s the script from a very bad movie. But this administration, this president has demonstrated that they have a capacity to go lower than we can possibly imagine. So, yeah, I think we have to be concerned about that. His attempt to talk about mail-in voting and all the fraud that is associated with it is factually incorrect. He’s just trying to set up a situation where he has the ability to delegitimize a vote that he might lose.”
“If he loses, and I expect that he will, then we have to be prepared for what he is going to do in the immediate aftermath of such a loss, and what he’ll do for the time period between the election and the inauguration of the next president. We have to be prepared for things that this nation has never faced before, and unfortunately, that could involve the use of, you know, these forces. Who knows what he’ll do and the people who are in — as part of his administration will support him in doing.”
