(WatchDogReport.org) – Federal prosecutors recently filed charges against a Michigan man who threatened to murder Vice President Kamala Harris and President Joe Biden. The suspect also called for the execution of federal judges and agents and even suggested that someone would detonate a bomb in Washington, DC.
Authorities revealed that the suspect is a 48-year-old man named Russell Douglas Warren. Different reports noted he was charged in Michigan’s Eastern District after publishing a series of posts on his Twitter account where he threatened to kill some public officials and put bombs on government buildings. His Twitter account only had 22 followers and featured dozens of similar threats aimed at different targets, including the US military, government buildings, current and former magistrates and judges, and current and former US politicians.
Warren also threatened to detonate bombs at some government agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Internal Revenue Service, and the National Security Agency. In one post, he wrote that US authorities needed to execute a “complete evacuation” of the country’s capital city as soon as possible, as he was going to drop a “bomb on it.” He added that every FBI headquarters “shall be bombed,” stating that all of its agents “have been condemned.”
In another post, the suspect said that President Biden and Vice President Harris needed to be taken to prison and be “hanged” to death. Moreover, Warren published similar posts targeting Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, and many other officials.
The Michigan man also made threats of execution against Democrats and Republicans who were running for president. These included lawyer Robert Kennedy Jr., author Marianne Williamson, former Vice President Mike Pence, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Warren was charged with a count of threats against the commander-in-chief and successors to the US presidency, which is a felony that carries a sentence of five years in prison.
