The Charleston Post & Courier reports:
Federal authorities have charged a South Carolina man with threatening a former assistant U.S. attorney who years ago prosecuted the leader of the Proud Boys white nationalist group.
James Giannakos Jr. of Gilbert left a series of voicemails last month threatening that the former prosecutor, her family and her co-workers would be in “danger” if anything happened to Proud Boys chairman Enrique Tarrio [PHOTO], according to court documents filed Feb. 2.
The unemployed Lexington County man blamed the unnamed, Miami-based former prosecutor for outing Tarrio to the press as an FBI informant, transcripts of his voicemails show. The charge against Giannakos, 46, carries up to five years in prison. He is currently being held in the Lexington County Detention Center.
