Cultist Found Guilty Of Death Threats Against Top Dems

Courthouse News reports:

After three hours of deliberation, a jury found Brendan Hunt guilty of threatening to murder members of Congress in online posts before and in the wake of the Jan. 6 riot at the United States Capitol. Hunt, 37, faces up to 10 years in prison for the threats, which targeted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer and U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, all elected Democrats.

Referring to the officials as “high value target[s],” Hunt called for their public execution by firing squad in Facebook posts in December 2020. In the days following the Washington, D.C. insurrection, Hunt posted a video titled “Kill Your Senators” on the streaming platform BitChute. In the video, he advocated for an armed return to the scene during President Joe Biden’s inauguration ceremony.
