Jewish Senator Threatened With Death

( – Las Vegas resident John Anthony Miller, aged 43, was apprehended and has been criminally charged by federal law enforcement with threats to abduct, assault, or assassinate a United States senator.

The Department of Justice, through a criminal complaint, disclosed that in the span of 9 days, Miller left numerous menacing voicemails at the office of a U.S. senator. These voicemails were confirmed by Fox News to be directed at Senator Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.), who is of Jewish descent.

The complaint detailed that Miller issued threats to harm, kidnap, or even murder Rosen, whose name is omitted in the complaint, with the intention of obstructing, intimidating, or hindering her senatorial responsibilities.

The voicemails contained explicit language and were elaborated upon in the criminal complaint. For instance, in one message, Miller expressed, “All these [expletive]ing lies is in your [expletive]ing hands, you [expletive]ing [expletive], and I’m gonna [expletive]ing see you soon, you [expletive]ing sellout [expletive]ing [expletive] [expletive].”

Subsequently, Miller arrived at the Lloyd D. George Courthouse in Las Vegas, declaring his intention to meet the U.S. senator. He displayed non-cooperation with a court security guard, leading to his denied entry. Miller reacted by becoming agitated and began to shout profanities.

On the last day of his tirade, Miller left additional voicemails for Rosen. In one, he questioned if the senator had relatives who were Israeli settlers, insinuating that if she did, she would likely not prohibit them from traveling to the U.S. Miller accused Rosen of allowing her family members to perpetrate crimes against Palestinians in the West Bank.

Miller was detained in late October and now faces a charge of threatening a federal official. A spokesperson for Senator Rosen stated, “Threats against public officials should be taken seriously,” expressing trust in the U.S. Attorney’s office and federal law enforcement to manage the situation.

Miller is scheduled to appear before U.S. Magistrate Judge Elayna J. Youchah on November 13, 2023.
