Texas woman is facing federal charges, accused of leaving a threatening message to U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan, the federal judge overseeing former President Donald Trump's January 6 case.

According to court documents filed in the Southern District of Texas court, Abigail Jo Shry of Alvin, Texas, called Chutkan's chambers on the evening of August 5 and left "a threatening voicemail message." Federal investigators with the Department of Homeland Security said that Shry started her call by saying, "Hey you stupid slave," followed by a racial slur.

During the call, investigators said, Shry "threatened to kill anyone who went after former President Trump." She also specifically threatened to kill Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, a Democrat representing Texas' 18th Congressional District, as well as "all Democrats in Washington, D.C., and all people of the LGBTQ community," read the filing from Friday.
