Johnson addresses attacks on social media

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WNAX) – Representative Elise Stefanik of New York was a strong defender of President Trump during the initial impeachment hearings before the Intelligence Committee. Because of that she was widely attacked on social media.

South Dakota Congressman Dusty Johnson mentioned her in a tweet saying “We have both been under attack.” He then asked for donations.

Johnson says the attacks ramped up during the hearings.

Johnson says he can’t say where the attacks come from.

Johnson says it was a way to tell people he has been working with Stefanik.

Stefanik was first elected in 2014, Johnson was elected to Congress last year.
