...On Thursday, Dec. 17, Trump supporters started flooding social media with claims that a woman named Ruby Freeman had been arrested by the FBI for crimes related to election fraud in Atlanta, Georgia.

"Ruby Freeman (the Democrat suitcase blonde-braid woman in GA) has been arrested! She has acknowledged to law enforcement and investigators her role in the Fulton County methods of GOP witness complaints and the after hours ballot scheme count," wrote Mona Fishman, a Trump supporter, on Twitter.

The rumor included additional claims of Freeman intentionally "mishandling" ballots, implicating Dominion officials for their role in the alleged election fraud scheme and requesting amnesty in exchange for her testimony. The posts cited the source of the information as an FBI statement posted by the agency's Georgia arm on Dec. 1...

Kanye West publicist pressed Georgia election worker to confess to bogus fraud charges (December 2021)
www.reuters.com

...Weeks after the 2020 election, a Chicago publicist for hip-hop artist Kanye West traveled to the suburban home of Ruby Freeman, a frightened Georgia election worker who was facing death threats after being falsely accused by former President Donald Trump of manipulating votes. The publicist knocked on the door and offered to help.

The visitor, Trevian Kutti, gave her name but didn't say she worked for West, a longtime billionaire friend of Trump. She said she was sent by a "high-profile individual," whom she didn't identify, to give Freeman an urgent message: confess to Trump's voter-fraud allegations, or people would come to her home in 48 hours, and she'd go to jail....

When Kutti knocked on Freeman's door on Jan. 4, Freeman called 911. By then, Freeman said, she was wary of strangers....

By the time Kutti arrived, Freeman needed help but was cautious and wouldn't open the door because of the threats, according to Freeman and a police report.

So Freeman asked a neighbor to come over and talk with Kutti, who was with an unidentified male. Like Freeman, Kutti and the other visitor were Black. Kutti told the neighbor that Freeman was in danger and that she'd been sent to provide assistance. Freeman said she was open to meeting them. She asked Cobb County Police to send an officer to keep watch so she could step outside, according to a recording of her 911 call.

"They're saying that I need help," Freeman told the dispatcher, referring to the people at her door, "that it's just a matter of time that they are going to come out for me and my family."

An officer arrived and spoke with Kutti, who described herself as a "crisis manager," according to the police incident report.

Kutti repeated that Freeman "was in danger" and had "48 hours" before "unknown subjects" turned up at her home, the report said. At the officer's suggestion, the women agreed to meet at a police station. The officer's report did not identify the man accompanying Kutti....

Inside the station, Kutti and Freeman met in a corner, according to footage from a body camera worn by an officer present at the meeting. Reuters obtained the video through a public-records request.

"I cannot say what specifically will take place," Kutti is heard telling Freeman in the recording. "I just know that it will disrupt your freedom," she said, "and the freedom of one or more of your family members."

"You are a loose end for a party that needs to tidy up," Kutti continued. She added that "federal people" were involved, without offering specifics.

According to Freeman, Kutti told her that she was going to put a man named "Harrison Ford" on speakerphone. (Freeman said the man on the phone wasn't the actor by the same name.) Kutti said the man had "authoritative powers to get you protection," the bodycam footage shows....


Welcome to Trump's America.

(fwiw, the Reuter's article is worth a read...)
