New York Man Charged With Threatening to Kill Former President Trump

A New York man has been arrested for threatening to kill former President Trump. According to the report, Thomas Welnick said during a July 21, 2020 phone call with Capitol police that he planned to take matters into his own hands and “acquire weapons” if President Trump refused to step down.

The Hill reports:

The document does not name Trump directly, but notes that “individual-1” served as the U.S. president from Jan. 20, 2017 until Jan. 20. 2021.

Welnick reportedly bragged to Capitol Police about how easy it was for him to get a firearm, adding, “I don’t want to hurt anyone, but I will stand up to fascism.”

“I really hope that God takes [Trump] out,” he said at the end of his interview with Capitol Police, according to the criminal complaint.

The court document does provide additional details about the interview with Capitol Police, only noting that it was voluntary. The criminal complaint references five other days that Welnick contacted authorities regarding Trump.

An arrest warrant for Welnick was issued on Friday.

Mr. Welnick is One of Many ASSASSINS in a FAILED ATTEMPT to ASSASSINATE PRESIDENT TRUMP. The MOCKINGBIRD MEDIA COVERED UP ANOTHER ASSASSINATION PLOT in JANUARY of 2017 Before TRUMP was SWORN IN AS CHIEF EXECUTIVE of AMERICA. A MICHAEL BUSH LISTED as DECEASED was APPREHENDED by SECRET SERVICE and TRUMP PRIVATE SECURITY at ONE of TRUMP PROPERTIES in NEW YORK CITY. MR. BUSH HAD A FIREARM WITH A ERASED SERIAL NUMBER HE BREACHED SECURITY AT ONE OF TRUMP PROPERTIES THE MOCKINGBIRD MEDIA COVERED UP THAT EVENT. THERE WAS ANOTHER ATTEMPT WHEN PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS AT HIS MAR A LARGO ESTATE IN FLORIDA A ASSASSIN INA FAILED ATTEMPT TRIED TO RAM THE PRESIDENTIAL LIMO BUT HE WAS STOPPED IN HIS TRACKS.

The reason it was so late was maybe because the DOJ was waiting to see if Welnick was going to carry through on his pledge or maybe it was too busy prosecuting white supremacists. I know there can’t be many white supremacists committing crimes or the New York Times and Washington Post would be reporting on it for weeks on their front pages.

No, but there are A LOT of black supremacists committing crime in New York. Just ask that poor 19-year-old girl killed at Burger King. Another upstanding citizen. Appears Adams is just as incompetent as de Blasio.

Why so late? He did this last year. They’ve rounded up and incarcerated numerous people they claim were part of an “Insurrection ” without bail, but a full blown threat in English, to law enforcement, about murdering President Trump, is ignored until now?
