A Texas woman, Abigail Jo Shry, has been charged with federal offenses for allegedly threatening to kill a judge overseeing former President Donald Trump’s election fraud case and a Democratic congresswoman. According to a criminal complaint, Shry left a threatening voicemail on August 5, directed at U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan and Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX). The voicemail contained racial slurs and threats to harm individuals associated with Trump, Democrats in Washington D.C., and the LGBTQ community.

Shry admitted to leaving the voicemail in question, in which she warned of violence and death. The threats were directed at Judge Chutkan, who was assigned to oversee the case involving Trump’s alleged conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election, and Representative Lee, who introduced articles of impeachment against Trump after the Capitol riot in January 2021.

The charges against Shry include transmitting threats to injure another person, a felony with a maximum prison sentence of up to five years. Shry had been previously charged four times in the past year for similar conduct, resulting in convictions and imprisonment.

Shry has been ordered to be held without bond, and a full bond hearing is scheduled for a later date in the Southern District of Texas.
