AUDIO: Listen To Threatening Voicemail Left For Capitol Insurrection Victim After Testimony
On Tuesday, Officer Michael Fanone testified before a House Committee. He told of the day that Trump supporters, trying to force Congress to overturn the election outcome, beat him until he lost consciousness. After recounting and reliving his trauma before an audience, including a replay of a portion of his body camera from that day, he was treated to a new attack, in the form of a threatening voicemail.
The clip below is ugly. It includes vulgarity, an anti-gay slur, racist rhetoric, as well as a wish that the Capitol rioters had done even worse and not allowed Officer Fanone to escape with his life. Please listen with caution.

“You want an Emmy, an Oscar, what are you trying to go for here? You’re so full of s**t you little f****t f***er. You’re a little p***y man. I could slap you upside of the head with a backhand and knock you out you little f*****. You’re a punk f** and you’re a lying f***. How about all the [inaudible] Black scum for two years destroying our cities and burning them…I wish they would’ve killed all you scumbags…They stole the election from Trump and you know that you scumbag…too bad they didn’t beat the s*** out of you more.”
As mentioned, Fanone testified that analysis of his body camera concluded that he lost consciousness for several minutes, and that rioters were trying to take his gun while others in the crowd shouted for someone to kill Fanone with his own weapon.
