Man Accused of Threatening Congressmember

Man Accused of Threatening Congressmember

Congressmember THREATENED – Man Slapped With Serious Charges!

( – The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced charges against a 39-year-old man from Maryland on September 6. Justin Kuchta allegedly threatened the life of a member of Congress through multiple digital messages. The DOJ didn’t reveal the lawmaker’s name, although some reports have claimed that the lawmaker is Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).

The suspect allegedly sent a message through an event management website saying he would kill the Congressmember. The lawmaker’s office also received direct communication to the same effect. Kuchta reportedly claimed to have weapons and stated he intended to act on the threats soon.

The DOJ would not confirm the identity of the targeted person, but the agency did release the contents of the message. It included a mention of going after the Zodiac killer. A report from Law and Crime said that the suspect allegedly threatened Ted Cruz, and the report also referred to an internet joke from 2018 about Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) being the notorious serial murderer despite clear and convincing evidence against the accusation.

Agents were able to trace the messages back to Kuchta’s workplace computer. Authorities interviewed him, but he denied knowledge of the incidents. Yet, after he learned making such statements was a federal offense, he admitted to doing it.

Kuchta appeared in court for the first time on September 7. He could receive a sentence of up to five years in prison if convicted of making threats against a member of Congress.
