The Republican-controlled Senate voted on Wednesday to officially acquit President Donald Trump on both articles of impeachment.
The impeachment witch hunt is finally over, but House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff is back in the news.
And the reason may surprise some.
The Hill reports that an Arizona man is facing prison time for threatening to kill Schiff.
Jan Peter Meister has been indicted on federal charges related to an expletive-laden call he made to Schiff’s office in Washington, D.C.
Meister is alleged to have left Schiff a telephone message in which stated that he would “f****** blow your brains out you f****** piece of s**t.”
He reportedly used Google to locate Schiff’s office phone number.
The convicted felon explained to law enforcement officials that he never had any intention of acting on his threat and “likely was upset at something that he saw on the news.”
Still, in addition to charges related to the threat itself, Meister is facing gun charges, as well; authorities found multiple weapons during a search of his home.
Federal law prohibits felons from purchasing or possessing firearms.
Threats of physical violence against elected officials have become increasingly common in recent years, and unfortunately, they don’t always prove to be empty.
In 2017, a Sen. Bernie Sanders supporter tried to assassinate multiple Republican lawmakers during a congressional baseball practice in Virginia.
The deranged shooter shot Republican Rep. Steve Scalise, leaving him severely injured and fighting for his life in the hospital for several months.
Lobbyist Matt Mika sustained multiple gunshot wounds, as well, taking rounds to his arms and torso.
The shootout also injured police officers David Bailey and Crystal Griner, and the attack didn’t come to an end until the shooter, James Hodgkinson, was fatally wounded.
Hodgkinson was a longtime left-wing activist who had worked on the Sanders campaign during the previous year.
As the Left gets more desperate to oppose Trump ahead of the presidential election, these disgusting tactics and calls for violence only prove how insane and unhinged they have become.
