U.S. charges Texas man with threatening to 'assassinate' lawmaker
The Justice Department revealed charges this week against a Texas man who allegedly stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 and threatened on social media to kill U.S. Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Images of social media posts allegedly authored by Miller, which appear to announce his trip to the Capitol and threaten the life of Ocasio-Cortez as well as a Capitol Police officer, are cited in the court filing.Prosecutors said Miller made numerous threatening remarks online, including one instance in which he commented “next time we bring the guns” on a Twitter video showing rioters exiting a Capitol building.
A spokeswoman for Ocasio-Cortez was not immediately available for comment. Miller was arrested on Wednesday and a detention hearing is planned for Monday.Reporting by Christopher Bing; Editing by Richard Chang Read more: Reuters Top News »
