Brendan Hunt Who Threaten To Kill Members Of Congress Found Guilty

An ardent supporter of Donald Trump who called for the “slaughter” of members of Congress two days after the Capitol riot faces up to 10 years in prison after a jury found him guilty of threatening lawmakers.
On 8 January, two days after the assault on the Capitol, Brendan Hunt posted a video titled “KILL YOUR SENATORS: Slaughter them all” to a website popular with the far-right.

He also posted several threats on social media in December targeting Democratic lawmakers, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and US Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The 37-year-old was arrested on 19 January. He will be sentenced in June.

“We need to go back to the US Capitol, when all of the senators and a lot of the representatives are back there, and this time we have to show up with our guns,” he said in a video posted to BitChute.

“And we need to slaughter these mother*******.”
