The Epoch Times reports that a Texas woman has been arrested for threatening to murder former President Donald Trump and a federal judge for her handling of a legal case involving documents taken from Trump’s home by the FBI on August 8.
The case involves Trump’s Fourth Amendment challenge of the FBI’s raid of his Mar-a-Lago resort home in Florida, during which the FBI confiscated documents and personal items. Trump asserts the documents were appropriately declassified and stored at his home office.
The FBI contends the ‘top secret’ documents should not have been in his possession. Last week, U.S. District Judge Aileen M. Cannon sided with Trump and agreed to appoint a special master to review the documents and rule on the matter.
The turn of events infuriated Tiffani Gish of Texas, who expressed her outrage by unwisely leaving three threatening voicemail messages on Cannon’s phone.
Allegedly, Gish attempted to hide her identity by referring to herself as Evelyn Salt.
According to the Epoch Times, the phone messages were left on Sept. 1, an FBI agent said in court documents.
Reportedly, Gish’s first message noted: “Donald Trump has been … marked for assassination.”
In a second message, Gish reportedly threatened the judge, saying, “I’m going to [expletive] have you shot myself. I’ve already ordered snipers and a bomb to your [expletive] house.”
In a third call, Gish threatened Cannon a second time saying, “I’m going to take my [expletive] to [expletive] Florida, and I’m going to personally throw a bullet to your [expletive] head in front of your kids.”
The FBI provided transcripts of the phone calls to a federal court in Houston. In those transcripts, Gish claimed she was angry with Cannon because “the judge was obstructing justice.”
Evidence provided by the FBI noted that Gish had previously made threats against Trump.
The Epoch Times noted that initially Gish refused to let U.S. Marshals into her home when they arrived on Sept. 4. However, after a lengthy discussion, Gish did allow Marshals to enter her home and admitted to leaving the voicemails and coordinating a Facebook page on which threats against Trump were made.
Federal agents have charged Gish with “influencing a federal official by threat and interstate communications with a threat to kidnap or injure.”
Gish is currently in custody and faces up to 11 years in prison if convicted.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Peter Bray denied bail for Gish, noting that “the weight of evidence against Gish is strong” and that she has a “history of criminal acts and violence.”
Bray also noted that Gish apparently suffers “from severe mental impairments with symptoms including paranoia and delusions” and that her mother lives in fear of her.
Noting Gish’s violent past, Bray said:
“Unfortunately, given her mental problems, Gish has no self-control and is not likely to follow this court’s orders. The court believes she will continue making online threats, will not show up for court, and will not follow the supervising officer’s instructions.”
