David Hogg’s mom reveals family targeted by death threats over gun activism: ‘I’m angry and exhausted’

Published

The mother of David Hogg, the Parkland teen who has become a leader in a grassroots effort to enact new gun safety legislation, said her family has received death threats over the boy’s activism.

Rebecca Boldrick, an elementary school teacher, said conspiracy theorists attacking her son as a “crisis actor” and FBI stooge have encouraged violent threats against her and her loved ones, reported the Washington Post.

“I’m under so much stress,” Boldrick said. “I’m angry and exhausted. Angry, exhausted and extremely proud.”

Conspiracy theorists have pointed to Hogg’s admission during a TV interview that his father had retired from the FBI and claimed the teen was being used to cover up the agency’s failures to stop the gunman despite reports of his disturbing behavior.

Boldrick said her husband, David Hogg, is a Republican who worked as an FBI agent at airports in Los Angeles and Florida before retiring in October 2016 due to early-onset Parkinson’s disease.

She said her family had not previously revealed his health issues because her husband was embarrassed.

Conspiracy theorists have also pointed out that Hogg had been interviewed about a beach altercation last year in Redondo Beach, California, as “proof” that he’s an actor, but his mother said they ended up in south Florida after her husband was transferred.

Boldrick said the family chose to live in Parkland due to the schools there.

“I’m a teacher, I pick my neighborhood for the school,” she said.

Published

Rudy Giuliani denied claims by former national security adviser John Bolton, and kept the door open to his own possible impeachment testimony.

The former New York City mayor said he was still President Donald Trump's personal attorney, but explained why he had not been added to his impeachment trial defense team, reported CBS News.

"Well, I am, but I can't participate in what goes on in the Congress, because I'm a possible witness," Giuliani said, adding that he's ready to testify if he got White House approval.
