Proud Boys Fan Charged With Death Threat Against Warnock Couldn’t Get Ride To Capitol Riot, Feds Say

The New York Daily News reports:

A Queens Proud Boys supporter arrested in January for making online threats against Georgia Sen. Raphael Warnock was all set to attend the Capitol riot with other Trump supporters — but couldn’t get a ride down to D.C., prosecutors said Thursday.

Eduard Florea’s wife, Joni Florea, told prosecutors that her husband was in a “frenzy” to go to the Capitol on Jan. 6., and even got dressed in a tactical vest and armed himself with combat knives.

The Middle Village man surrendered to the feds on Jan. 12 in a caught-on-camera raid, with authorities seizing about 1,000 rounds of rifle ammunition, 24 shotgun shells, 75 combat knives, two hatchets and two swords from his home.

According to the FBI, Florea choked his wife and threatened to stab her to death when she refused to let him use their joint business account to raise money for the Proud Boys.
