( – On Friday, June 2, a New Hampshire resident named Brian Landry was charged with threatening to kidnap, assault, or murder a United States official. Prosecutors alleged that Landry called and threatened a US Senator’s office by voicemail back in May.

In the message, the man greeted the Senator by saying, “Hey stupid,” and then proceeded to note that he was a “veteran sniper” and that if the Senator did not change how he acted he would go after him. He finished the message by stating that the US Senator was a “dead man walking” and calling him a “piece of f***ing sh**.”

Landry allegedly told investigators that following the reports of the senator “blocking military promotions,” he had gotten furious because he knew how important these entitlement programs were for veterans and he disagreed with how lawmakers were handling these issues.

According to a report from The Hill, Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) has been facing criticism recently due to his decision to hold up military promotions and nominations. He has been doing this to protest policies by the Department of Defense that provide leave and reimbursements for those who need to travel for abortions. However, the name of the individual allegedly threatened by Landry hasn’t been identified by officials.

In a May letter, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said that Tuberville’s actions were hurting the country’s “national security” and blocking the Pentagon’s “normal operations.” He added that the longer this hold is going on the bigger the security risk.
