The US Attorney’s office in Brooklyn said that US intelligence has arrested a 72-year-old man who repeatedly threatened to assassinate former US President Donald Trump on Monday night.
Thomas Welnicki, who warned intelligence to protect the President and Vice President of the United States before and after the 2020 presidential elections that he wanted to do with Trump, has been released on bail of fifty thousand dollars (15.8 million forints). The man was monitored using GPS, and psychiatric and addiction examinations were also required.
According to investigative materials, Welnicki called the New York Intelligence Bureau at least three times between September 24 and December 24, 2020, and threatened to end up with the president, who called Hitler in one of his calls last November.
The man indicated to the Capitol Police in the summer of 2020 that he would obtain weapons and kill Trump if the politician did not admit defeat in the presidential election. And on Jan. 4 last year, two days before the Capitol riots, he left two voicemails on the phone at the Secret Service office in New York, saying he would do the same to a dozen members of Congress. In the history of the United States, two current presidents have been assassinated so far: Abraham Lincoln in 1865 and John Fitzgerald Kennedy in 1963.
