On Thursday night’s Kelly File, Megyn Kelly interviewed two individuals who are connected to the infamous John Doe Raids in Wisconsin, in which private citizens were persecuted by a vindictive, hyper-partisan DA for “nothing more than exercising their right to support conservative causes.”
Head of Wisconsin Club For Growth Eric O’Keefe, told Kelly that his friends were attacked for their “virtue” and “effectiveness.”
“Because the left was tired of losing election after election after election – they correctly identified some of the most important communicators of political messages in Wisconsin, and they raided their family homes with kids at home. They knew the kids were home – they knew the schedules – they came in the dark…”
Michael Lutz, a decorated former police officer who knew District Attorney John Chisholm, stated that Chisholm admitted to him that the investigation was entirely political.
“In a personal conversation in his office, he had stated that he believed that it was his personal responsibility to stop Governor Walker and all Republicans from continuing to support ACT 10,” Lutz said.
O’Keefe was speaking out in defiance of the “secrecy order” which he noted was unconstitutional. He declared that he has sued Johm Chisholm because “he’s not fit to serve in public office.”
When Kelly pointed out that Chisholm has denied any wrongdoing, Lutz replied, “this is why I came forward in the first place because through the conversations and through what I witnessed in the district attorney’s office, John Chisholm had become so hyper-political and hyper partisan, he had weaponized his district attorney’s office to go after and prosecute and persecute all those who had a different ideology than him.”
He added, “it’s just so unAmerican and disgusting what’s going on, here.”
Kelly covered the story for the first time on Wednsday’s Kelly File, interviewing the author of the NRO piece, David French. She said she would be staying on the story, and invited DA John Chisholm to come on her show and defend himself.
