While a Republican State House Speaker's testimony held great weight, nothing speaks to the abject cruelty, the ultimate pettiness, the misdirected criminal intent and effect of Trump's sordid, twice-impeached, disgraced time in office, and clear conspiracy to overturn a free and democratic election than the intimidation of this election worker, her mother, and grandmother.
They certainly threatened Bowers and his family, but they did not burst open his grandmother's door waving faked documents and demanding a house arrest. They did that to Moss because she is Black.
