A Texas woman has been charged with threatening to kill a judge who is overseeing a criminal case against former US President Donald Trump.
Abigail Jo Shry, 43, allegedly phoned the court in Washington DC on 5 August and used a racial slur in her message for US District Judge Tanya Chutkan.
Ms Shry also allegedly threatened to kill a Democratic member of Congress.
She admitted making the call after investigators traced her phone number, according to a court document.
In the call, Ms Shry allegedly told the judge, who is overseeing an election conspiracy case against Mr Trump: “You are in our sights, we want to kill you.”
Prosecutors say Ms Shry added: “If Trump doesn’t get elected in 2024, we are coming to kill you.”
The caller also threatened all Democrats in Washington DC and the LGBT community, according to the court filing.
