Huckabee: Congressional Shooting Part of Left’s ‘Widespread Attempt’ to Violently Overturn Trump’s Election

The way former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee sees it, this week’s Congressional baseball shooting is all a part of a wider trend of liberals trying to overthrow the government because they can’t accept the results of last year’s presidential election.

Appearing on Fox & Friends this morning, the ex-Republican presidential candidate tied in James Hodgkinson’s shooting spree that left Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) in critical condition to a leftist movement.

“This is a bigger issue,” Huckabee said. “This is an attempt to overthrow the elected government. And I don’t want people to lose sight of the fact that what we’re seeing is not necessarily an organized attempt but a widespread attempt by people who hate the results of the election. Who want to overturn it not by another election, but by violent means. By any means possible!”

The one-time Fox News host, whose daughter works for the Trump administration, went on to say that this is a much greater threat to America’s democracy than anything Russia has attempted to do.

“Forget the Russians,” he exclaimed. “Forget the fact that people are saying ‘Oh the Russians tried to interfere with our democracy.’ They tried but there’s no evidence they changed one single vote.”

Huckabee went on to state that Americans need to be a lot more afraid of leftist radicals than the Russians, adding that they are committing “terrorism” against Trump supporters due to their bullying behavior.
