Amid the current turbulent political climate, a troubling incident has come to light involving the wife of David Shafer, a close ally of former President Donald Trump, who recently received a menacing letter.
This correspondence amplifies the prevailing unease within today’s political landscape. Penned by an anonymous sender, the letter contains a stark warning, urging her to “run” and cautioning, “It’s not going to end well for you.”
Reports from The Hill indicate that Georgia’s District Attorney Fani Willis has filed eight charges against Shafer, encompassing allegations such as impersonation of a public officer, forgery, making false statements, and attempting to submit fraudulent documents.
Shafer vehemently denies these charges, asserting that his actions involving setting up appointments and meetings were conducted within the scope of his regular responsibilities as a federal employee.
Efforts by WANF-TV to have his case transferred to a federal court under the legal provision known as the “Supremacy Clause,” which allows federal officers to have their cases tried in federal courts if the charges relate to their official duties, proved unsuccessful.
The court’s rejection of Shafer’s plea and the denial of bail for his co-defendant, Harrison Floyd, has cast a spotlight on the judicial process. Former President Trump has accused both the court and the Department of Justice of exhibiting political bias.
Harrison Floyd, leader of the organization Black Voices For Trump, was denied bail due to concerns about the potential for reoffending, as determined by the judge last week.
In a social media post, David Shafer, a former chair of the Georgia Republican Party, shared an image of the letter addressed to his wife. The letter included a photograph of Phillips State Prison in Buford, Georgia.
According to The Western Journal, the letter bore a handwritten caption that read, “David’s Retirement Home.”
Beneath the photograph, a message was inscribed: “Lee, Get Out Now And Run As Fast As You Can. This Is Not Going To End Well for David.”

Shafer expressed his gratitude, stating, “I am thankful for all those who have extended their support and encouragement to me. I have consistently felt a sense of solidarity,” mentioning the establishment of a fundraising account aimed at assisting him in managing the increasing legal costs.

Following his arrest, Shafer garnered substantial backing on social media, exemplified by his decision to utilize his mug shot as his profile picture on the platform. One commenter stated, “The actions of Democrats are spiraling out of control.”

Shafer also shared a comment from Malik Obama, who humorously referred to himself as “the elder, wiser, and more handsome of the Obama siblings.”
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) expressed his strong disapproval upon discovering that a threatening letter had been sent to the wife of his colleague David Shafer. Cruz conveyed his deep dismay, stating, “I am appalled by the news of a threatening letter being directed towards the wife of my dear friend David Shafer.”
He further emphasized, “Such acts of threats and intimidation, especially when targeted at families, are unequivocally wrong and deserve the condemnation of all.”
