John Durham Charges Man with Threatening to Assault and Murder Adam Schiff

John Durham

US Attorney General Bill Barr appointed US Attorney from Connecticut John Durham almost one year ago to investigate the origins of Spygate and he still has not indicted any of the Deep State coup plotters.

Durham is reportedly set to end his probe this summer but he has yet to interview Jim Comey, Carter Page or John Brennan.

But he announced Monday that he charged a man who threatened to assault and murder impeachment ringleader Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA).

Via the DOJ:

John H. Durham, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, and David Sundberg, Special Agent in Charge of the New Haven Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, today announced that ROBERT M. PHELPS, 62, of Torrington, has been charged by federal criminal complaint with threatening to murder U.S. Representative Adam Schiff of California.

Phelps was arrested on March 13. Following his arrest, he appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge William I. Garfinkel in Bridgeport and was released on a $25,000 bond.

As alleged in court documents and statements made in court, on November 12, 2019, the office of U.S. Representative Adam Schiff received a threatening communication through a Meeting Request entry form on Congressman Schiff’s official website. The meeting request included the statement “…I want to kill you with my bare hands and smash your…face in.” In addition, in response to the preferred days of the week for the meeting request, Phelps wrote “Measure your Coffin day.”

It is further alleged that, on December 4, 2019, investigators interviewed Phelps at his Torrington residence and confirmed that Phelps sent the threatening communication.

According to the complaint, investigators went to Phelps’ home in December to question him about the threatening message he sent to Adam Schiff in November via his “schedule-a-meeting” website.

“You little c*cksucker I want to come and see you so I can spit in your face and I want to kill you with my bare hands and smash your sick little round fat lying face in,” the message said. “You had better hope I never meet up with you motherf*cker.”

The message was signed by “Robert M. Phelps Republican.”

The email also included all of Phelps’ information such as his full legal name, his home address, phone number and email address.

He listed the name of his organization as “Lyingc*cksuckerclub.shittyshiffy” and added other names such as, “NANCY PIGLOSI DUMOCRATIC RETARDS.”

When asked what day of the week he preferred to meet Schiff, he stated: “Measure your Coffin day.”

Phelps admitted to investigators that he was the one who sent Schiff the emails but added he didn’t believe the messages were threatening.

Phelps was released on a $25,000 bond and faces up to 15 years in prison if found guilty on all charges.
