HuffPost reports that a Trump supporter, Patrick Carlineo (55) of western New York, entered a guilty plea on charges that he threatened to kill Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.
According to the criminal complaint, Carlineo called Rep. Omar’s office on March 21, 2019. He identified himself and then launched into a rant at the staffer on the phone: “Do you work for the Muslim brotherhood? Why are you working for her, she’s a f*cking terrorist. I’ll put a bullet in her f*cking skull.”
According to HuffPost, Carlineo told the FBI that he is a patriot, hates people he perceives to be radical Muslims in the U.S. government, and loves Republican President Donald Trump, according to a criminal complaint.
His sentencing hearing is scheduled for February 14. He faces up to ten years in prison.
