A few days after the 2020 presidential election, Andrew Nickels called an elections clerk in Michigan. He left a voice mail.

“We’re watching your … mouth talk about how you think that there’s no irregularities” in the election, he said, according to a transcript later published by the Justice Department. “You frauded out America of a real election.” The official would “pay for it,” Nickels said, warning that “we will kill you.”
