A Houston, Texas, woman has been charged with two felonies for three voicemail messages threatening a federal judge September 1.
The disjointed, profanity-laced messages threatened to kill Florida District Court Judge Aileen Cannon. The judge ordered a special master appointed to filter out presidential documents that are not reviewable by Department of Justice investigators.
“[A]nd guess what, I’m also Trump’s hitman, so consider it a bullet to your head from Donald Trump himself,” one message declared. The messages were traced to Houston resident Tiffani Gish’s cell phone.
During a 45-minute interview conducted by U.S. Marshals at Gish’s residence, she admitted the phone was hers and that she made the calls, according to a September 6 criminal complaint filed by FBI Special Agent Amy Avila.
The Daily Wire further reported:
Trump is “marked for assassination and so are you,” Gish allegedly said on one of messages left September 1. “You’re full of s—, and I’m going to f—ing have you shot myself. I’ve already ordered snipers and a bomb to your f—ing house.
Gish identified herself as a Russian agent named Evelyn Salt, a character from the 2010 Angelina Jolie movie “Salt,” and said she was “in charge of nuclear” for the government. She also claimed to be a federal agent and “Trump’s hitman” who had a “license to kill,” according to the complaint.
FBI agents interviewed Gish three days later, when she allegedly admitted making the calls from her cellphone. She also confirmed that a Facebook account in which similar threats were made was hers, the complaint said.
Gish, who was charged in federal court in Houston with influencing a federal official by threat and interstate communications with a threat to kidnap or injure, apparently has a history of bizarre behavior. Magistrate Judge Peter Bray on Friday ordered her detained pending trial, saying she “appears to suffer from severe mental impairments with symptoms including paranoia and delusions.”
