Michigan man accused of threatening congressman, saying he is going to kill FBI director

Source: Fox

A Michigan man is accused of threatening a congressman and the director of the FBI.

According to a court affidavit, a call threatening California Congressman John Garamendi was traced to 32-year-old Neil Matthew Walter's number. Walter is accused of leaving a voicemail for the congressman Nov. 3, saying, "John. Hey John. You’re gonna die John. You’re gonna die."

Police checked Walter's Facebook page, where they say they found" numerous comments stating beliefs that half the Senators, the FBI, CIA, police, Tom Cruise, and Elon Musk are involved in a child slave rape ring, listing various locations where these rings are located, one of which identified the United States Capitol Building."

A post was also found threatening Garamendi hours before the call, the affidavit said.

FBI does like it when people make it easy for them to prosecute them.

because he wrote his own.

How do these people get so lathered up over such nonsense that any thinking human would regard as bunk? What are they eating and drinking? We've all been peeved about something at some point, but these people are off the charts

16 months ago. I had been in the greater Seattle metro area. Going from mostly blue to decidedly red (in many areas) but that isn't what concerns me. It's the type of people like this guy and the ones that were going to kidnap and harm the governor. I don't remember Michigan being like this growing up here (50's/60's). Man!!!!!!!!!!

From fear of being singled out themselves.

1 part trump, 1 part foreign money dividing us.

We must hold love in our hearts and space for healing our society.
