Former Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) told the Guardian he received a number of threats from supporters of the president before he left office this year.
“Flake described several examples of threatening messages and behaviour made against him and his family that he said were currently being investigated by law enforcement agencies in Arizona and Washington DC.”
Said Flake: “I would have liked to have done one more term in the Senate, that’s probably all. But its been at a heavy cost to my family. The sacrifices they’ve been made to make, what they had to endure.”
