A second Trump administration will ‘come after’ people in the media in the courts, an ally says

Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — A Donald Trump ally who worked in his Justice Department says that if the former president is elected again, his administration will retaliate against people in the media “criminally or civilly.” Kash Patel said Tuesday on Steve Bannon’s podcast that a future administration would “go out and find the conspirators not just in government, but in the media” over the 2020 presidential election. In response to Patel’s comments, Trump’s campaign said in a statement, “Idiotic comments like this have nothing to do with our campaign.” Trump has campaigned for the White House on a message of ”retribution” and suggested on his social media network that he might investigate media companies.
