Pro-Trump radicals target Michael Fanone after testifying about Capitol riots on Jan. 6. Who is He?
Washington Metropolitan police officer Michael Fanone said Wednesday he’s been targeted by pro-Trump radicals over his gripping appearance at the Congressional committee investigating the attack on the Capitol.
Fanone played back an anonymous obscenity-peppered phone message he received overnight that derided him as a traitor and accused him of somehow staging the Jan. 6 riots.
“This is what happens when you tell the truth in Trump’s America,” Fanone, a 20-year veteran cop, told CNN. “I’m in good company.”

Fanone said a big chunk of the American Public has been successfully gaslighted by right-wing lawmakers and media figures into believing a different reality about the storming of the Capitol.
Gaslighted? To gaslight someone means to make them doubt their sense of reality. … Gaslighting is a form of manipulation commonly seen in abusive relationships. It is a form of emotional abuse where the abuser bullies the victim about their judgment or perception of reality. The victim finally starts to doubt their credibility.
