Oklahoman Charged With Threatening Federal Officials

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma man has been charged with 10 counts of threatening former President George W. Bush, U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and and six members of Congress.

Court documents dated Thursday allege Michael Brandon Houck made the threats in social media posts in November, December and January.

An attorney listed for Houck did not immediately return a phone call for comment on Saturday.

The documents say threats were also made to Sens. James Lankford, Chuck Schumer, Lindsey Graham, Mitt Romney, Mitch McConnell and Rep. Nancy Pelosi.

The threats included death, such as to former President Bush, according to the indictment.

“GWB is a dead man ... we will find you georgie boy,” the document alleges.

Lankford, Graham, McConnell and Romney are all Republicans. Pelosi, the House speaker, and Schumer are Democrats. Roberts was appointed to the Supreme Court by then-President Bush, a Republican.
