Trump Campaign Lawyer Placed Under Protection Due to Death Threats

Philadelphia lawyer Linda Kerns, who is serving as one of President Trump’s campaign lawyers in Pennsylvania, was placed under official protection after she received threats. It is yet another example of leftists targeting law firms and attorneys representing the Trump campaign in their challenges to the presidential election.

According to court papers filed on Wednesday evening, Kerns “has been the subject of threats of harm, to the point at which the involvement of police and US Marshals has been necessary to provide for her safety.”

The New York Post reported that “the stunning revelation came two days after Kerns, a solo practitioner, sought sanctions against a lawyer from the firm representing Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar for leaving her an ‘abusive voicemail’ on Saturday night.”

The attorney also explained in court documents that she had “been subjected to continuous harassment in the form of abusive emails, phone calls, physical and economic threats, and even accusations of treason — all for representing the President of the United States’ campaign in this litigation.”

On Monday, Kerns asked for permission to quit the case she was involved in. Her decision came after federal Judge Matthew Brann allowed Porter, Wright, Morris & Arthur to withdraw from the case, after The Lincoln Project launched an online harassment campaign against its employees.

Kerns isn’t the only attorney working for Trump’s team that has dealt with harassment and threats. Porter, Wright, Morris & Arthur is one of a few, law firms that has been pressured to stop working with the campaign. Other firms have indicated that leftists have harassed them for their role in helping the president challenge the result of the election.

But it begs the question: If the Democrats are so confident that they won the election fairly, why are they resorting to harassment schemes to stop lawyers from representing Trump? It’s almost like they’re afraid that someone will find evidence that voter fraud was solely responsible for Biden earning more electoral votes, isn’t it?

While the “smoking gun” has not yet been found, there are plenty of examples showing that fraudulent activity could have happened. Over one hundred people have submitted affidavits under penalty of perjury alleging shady business at the polls. There is no way that this many people would be willing to risk jail time just to promote a narrative.

However, the question as to whether or not there were enough fraudulent votes to swing the election remains, and it seems that the Democrats are not interested in finding the answer to that query. Either way, their nervousness is a bit telling, isn’t it?
