A federal grand jury has indicted a Minnesota man Brendon Daugherty accused of threatening to kill a US senator.

Brendon Daugherty is being held at the Sherburne County Jail in Elk River, Minnesota on charges of threatening to kill a US official and transmitting a threat interstate. He is due to appear in court on Tuesday. It is not clear if he has hired an attorney to speak on his behalf.

Court records identify the senator only to say it was not a Minnesota senator who was threatened.

According to the indictment, Daugherty left two threats on the answering machine at the senator’s field office in June. Field workers contacted the US Capitol Police.

In his initial message, Daugherty said, “You and the Republican Party should be proud that you’re pushing me to become a domestic terrorist,” according to a Justice Department press release. Have a nice [expletive] day; I can’t wait to kill you.” In his second message, Daugherty explained, “I also just wanted to note that the Republican Party is thankfully opposed to gun control laws because they would keep guns out of the hands of a person who is disabled and a fugitive like me, but you people are totally against it, so maybe I can actually achieve my nefarious goals.

The press release went on to say that staff at the senator’s field office recorded the two messages and reported them to U.S. Capitol Police.

FBI agents spoke to Daugherty at his home in Coon Rapids on September 2. He told agents he made the calls because the senator was “doing a bunch of stupid things (expletive language) about gun control” and that he wants politicians to “feel a little.” under some pressure,” reported the Star Tribune.

According to court documents, Daugherty, 35, was convicted of two felonies in October 2018 for threatening to burn down a Pearl Vision store in Maple Grove and harming employees. Daugherty was furious that he owed $80 for replacement glasses, according to the indictment.
