On Monday, the United States Attorney John Durham issued a statement in a press release that he is handing down a criminal charge over threats to kill House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff.
The threat to assault and murder Adam Schiff was made by Robert Phelps, 62. Phelps was arrested on March 13 after allegedly sending Schiff a vulgar and violent email on Nov. 12 telling the Democrat, “I want to kill you” and “smash your … face in.” The accused faces a maximum of 10 years in jail.
According to WashintonExaminer:
The alleged threatening actions taken by Phelps, undertaken in the middle of Schiff-guided impeachment proceedings against President Trump, were detailed in a newly unsealed six-page affidavit by FBI special agent Daniel Heether.,
The complaint said Phelps sent Schiff’s office a “threatening communication” through his schedule-a-meeting website in November.
“You little c—sucker I want to come and see you so I can spit in your face and I want to kill you with my bare hands and smash your sick little round fat lying face in,” the message said. “You had better hope I never meet up with you mother f—er.”
The email included Phelps’s full name, address, phone number, and email. For his organization, he listed “Lyingc—suckerclub.shittyshiffy” and for the names of additional participants he listed “NANCY PIGLOSI DUMOCRATIC RETARDS.” For the preferred day of the week for the meeting, the message stated: “Measure your Coffin day.”
