Trump Fan Arrested For Death Threat Against Dem Rep

FBI N.Y. man threatened to kill Minnesota Rep. Omar

FBI N.Y. man threatened to kill Minnesota Rep. Omar

During the call, an individual, who identified himself as Pat Carlineo, said to a staff member: "Do you work for the Muslim Brotherhood?"

The caller added: "Why are you working for her? I'll put a bullet in her [expletive] skull".

Investigators reminded Carlineo that lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation is a crime and there was a recording of the phone calls, WROC reports.

For his alleged threatening remarks against Omar, Carlineo made his first appearance on Friday afternoon before US Magistrate Judge Marian W. Payson.

In February, Omar apologized "unequivocally" after Republicans and Democrats condemned comments she made about the pro-Israel lobby in the United States as using anti-Semitic stereotypes.

He further stated that he did make the threatening call to Omar's office.

There is one casualty of the 35-day long government shutdown that you may not know about: the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). "The Democrat version of the Violence Against Women Act takes away Second Amendment rights from people without due process".

Patrick W. Carlineo Jr., of Addison, New York, may face 10 years in prison or a $250,000 fine, or both, U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy Jr. said in a statement on Friday.

Omar's office and U.S. Capitol Police did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Omar admitted to supporting BDS after her election when her campaign told a site called Muslim Girl, "Ilhan believes in and supports the BDS movement, and has fought to make sure people's right to support it isn't criminalized".

The FBI this week arrested another NY man who authorities say talked online with white supremacists about a reenactment of the New Zealand mosque massacre.

He had initially claimed he had told Omar's office, "If our forefathers were still alive, they'd put a bullet in her head".

After Omar said that support for Israel was motivated by donations from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, several House Democratic leaders called the comments anti-Semitic and offensive.
