“I’m going to kill her next week. I’m going to murder her,” the caller, who initially said he was a major donor, said, according to WSB-FM. “You don’t think you’re going to get payback? You’re going to die. Your family is going to die.”The Macon Telegraph reported that, in one of two calls, the caller threatened to shoot Greene with a “sniper rifle.” The caller allegedly told members of Greene’s staff, “I’ll kill you too if you want,” according to the New York Post. “I want to thank every single member of law enforcement who acted swiftly in response to this murderous threat. From Rome City Police, the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office, U.S. Capitol Police, the House Sergeant at Arms, and ultimately the FBI who made the arrest, every official acted quickly to put this man behind bars,” Greene said Thursday in a statement, according to Atlanta News First.
“Threats to murder elected officials should never be tolerated. It doesn’t matter your political affiliation, no one should threaten your life for doing the job you were sent by the people to do,” she said. Greene then revealed the extent of the threats against her. “Receiving death threats on almost a daily basis is something I never expected when I entered office, but it is wrong and should never be tolerated,” the statement said. “I’m not the only victim with this threat of violence. My family is threatened. My staff is threatened. I even had to close my district office due to the potential of violence. It’s wrong and never should happen,” Greene said, referring to what WSB said was the closing of her office in Dalton, Georgia. Greene ended her statement on a characteristic note. “Threats of violence must be taken seriously. And that’s exactly why I take my Second Amendment rights seriously,” she said, per Atlanta First. According to WSB, Greene is not the only member of Congress to close an office due to threats. Georgia Republican Rep. Rich McCormick announced his office in Cumming would be temporarily closed because of threats of violence against staff there. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
