When agents from the United States Secret Service contacted Fiorenza, she willingly met with them to give a voluntary audio and video interview.

Fiorenza was charged with “transmitting threats to kill or injure another person in interstate commerce.”

The school in Palm Beach where the emails were sent is close to Trump’s home in Mar-A-Lago.

On Fiorenza’s Facebook page, she often posted anti-Trump memes and conspiracy theories about an elite pedophile ring in Hollywood. One post had a cartoon image of Trump in handcuffs with the caption, “I have a dream…”

Several other posts on Fiorenza’s Facebook page show the former President being hanged from a tree and call for his arrest.

Shry’s voicemail to Chutkan said, “You are in our sights, we want to kill you.”

She also told the judge, “If Trump doesn’t get elected in 2024, we are coming to kill you, so tread lightly, b***h.”

Shry’s voicemail went on to say that she would kill anyone who went after Trump, including “all Democrats in Washington D.C., and all people in the LGBTQ community.”

The complaint against Shry said that she threatened to target Chutkan “personally” and “publicly” as well as Chutkan’s family. 

Sheila Jackson Lee

Democratic Representative from Houston, Sheila Jackson Lee, was also on Shry’s list.

In the voicemail, Shry also said, “We want to kill Sheila Jackson Lee.”

After investigators traced the phone call back to Shry, she admitted to leaving the threatening messages.

However, she also told investigators that she had “no plans to travel to Washington D.C. or Houston” to act on her threats. 

Shry’s Charges

Shry was charged with “transmitting a threat to injure another person across state lines,” which is a felony. Because of Shry’s criminal record, she was not given bail. 

Out on Bond

On the day Shry left the threatening voicemail for Judge Chutkan, she was out of jail on bond for a different misdemeanor charge. 

Extra Security

Republicans have accused Chutkan of being biased and want her to step down. The judge has received extra security since the threats were made.
