“I’m gonna find you and put a bullet between your eyes…”
“Get out while you still can…”
“I hope your father dies soon…”
These are just a few of the credible death threats one top Trump Administration official is dealing with on a seemingly weekly basis.
Some of the threats have even been made publicly.
So why isn’t this a bigger story?
Because the threats have been directed at Environmental Protection Agency Chief Scott Pruitt.
He’s public enemy number-one of the left and the mainstream media. In fact, the media has spent months stoking leftist anger at Pruitt.
CBS recently unearthed an August 2017 report from the EPA’s Office of Inspector General highlighting at least 13 assassination threats Pruitt received from February 2017 to August 2017.
And while CBS reported on the threats, the story was picked by almost NO other major news outlets.
According to the Inspector General report, the threats against Pruitt ranged in severity, but many of them were serious enough to warrant rigorous investigations.
Investigators flagged one tweet that stated…
“Pruitt, I’m gonna find you and put a bullet between your eyes. Don’t think I’m joking. I’m planning this.”
These types of threats were a common occurrence, the report notes.
But here’s where things get scary… attempts to prosecute the people making the threats are off to a bungling, incompetent start.
The subject of one investigation sent a threatening postcard to Pruitt. The person was wearing two handguns on his waist while investigators were interviewing him at his residence. The United States Attorney’s Office DECLINED to prosecute the man.
Another person mailed a postcard to Pruitt telling him to “get out while you still can, Scott, you are evil incarnate you ignorant [insert 4-letter word].” An investigation was unable to determine who sent the message. The case was not presented to the United States Attorney’s Office for prosecution.
There have even been threats directed at Pruitt’s daughter, who was receiving hateful messages on her Facebook account. The threats were directed toward Pruitt and stated, “I hope your father dies soon, suffering as your mother watches in horror for hours on end.”
This investigation is ‘ongoing.’
Again, why isn’t this a bigger deal?!
According to the Daily Caller, some Democratic Senators have even tried to downplay the threats against Pruitt.
Are you kidding me?! Does the man have to be shot to get taken seriously?
Let’s face it. Because Pruitt is a key member of President Trump’s Cabinet, and many people don’t like Pruitt’s policies, they’re content to ignore the threats.
Even when the threats reach Pruitt’s daughter.
It’s just more proof of how hateful Trump’s enemies are. And some of them are becoming unhinged.
