Illinois Man Arrested For Threatening to Kidnap and Kill President Trump on Facebook
Joseph Lynn Pickett of Edwardsville, Illinois was arrested and charged on June 15 for threatening to assassinate President Trump in a series of Facebook posts.
Pickett, like every other radicalized liberal, is obsessed with Trump-Russia conspiracy theories and wants to kill Trump because he believes he’s a traitor to the U.S. This lies directly on the liars in the mainstream media for peddling the false Trump-Russia narrative.
U.S. Secret Service Special Agent Vincent Pescitelli said Pickett threatened to “take the life of, to kidnap, and to inflict bodily harm” against Trump on Facebook, according to a criminal complaint filed with the charges. The complaint included screenshots of Pickett’s Facebook posts.
“Before I die I want our president and congress to sign a treaty to never side with Russia or any enemy of the United States of America! If one will then that person deserves to be shot,” his post read. “Guess what Trump? I’m waiting for the right time…and I KNOW your (sic) Putin’s (expletive)! The secret service now has a heads up as to my plan to assassinate Trump…let’s see if they act.”
After the original post, Pickett continued to comment, saying he was “still waiting” for the Secret Service to knock on his door and arrest him.
