A Virginia Beach man has been arrested after threatening Senator Mark Warner on Tuesday.

According to local TV station WTKR, the man, Anthony Butkiewicz III, left several threatening voicemails at Senator Warner’s Richmond office and has subsequently been detained.

Butkiewicz was officially charged with “a single-count indictment with threatening to assault Warner, with intent to impede, intimidate, and interfere with Warner while he was engaged in the performance of his official duties,” per WTKR.

The news station reported that Butkiewicz’s first threat against the Senator was when he demanded the Senator hold a town hall event. “I would personally like to stand face to face with you and I will punch you in the jaw,” the station reported the man saying, per court records. “And you can lock me up and put me in jail, my friend! I ain’t got a problem with it,” he continued in the threat.

The phone threats then escalated further, with the defendant allegedly stating to Warner in a voicemail message:  “[S]tick your head between your f*****g legs and kiss your a** goodbye because we’ve got a bullet right for your ear!”

Beto O’Rourke looks to reactivate suburban strength in Texas to help Democrats win

Published

The photo line for Beto O’Rourke here Saturday afternoon quickly turned into something of a reunion.

“Hey, I know who you are!" a characteristically sweat-drenched O'Rourke told one supporter. After talking to another, O'Rourke yelled out to an aide: "Hey, someone who worked on the campaign wants to be plugged in again!"

The vibe was similar a day later in Plano, where O'Rourke rallied in front of signs reading, "Welcome to Beto Country," serving up nostalgia from his near-miss loss to U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz last year. He said the Senate race was the "only reason" he got to run for president, touting the support he built in Collin, Denton, Tarrant and Dallas counties before getting drowned out by cheers.

Corey Lewandowski may use Judiciary Committee hearing to launch New Hampshire Senate run

Former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski will appear before the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday to answer questions about incidents outlined in special counsel Robert Mueller's report. But he may use the appearance as a way to launch his New Hampshire Senate run.

Axios reported Sunday that the former top aide to President Donald Trump is eager for a fiery exchange between him and Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and other Democrats.

“Corey will use [the hearing] as part of the campaign. He will be confrontational to the Democrats. He will be totally loyal to Trump. And he will be playing to the right-wing of the party who need to unite behind him in a primary," said former New Hampshire Attorney General Thomas Rath.

"The Fake News is saying that I am willing to meet with Iran, 'No Conditions.' That is an incorrect statement (as usual!)," Trump tweeted.

In an odd twist, Trump announced just three months ago he'd be willing to meet with no preconditions.

“Not as far as I’m concerned – no preconditions,” the president said in a Meet the Press interview. At another point in the interview, he also said: “I think they want to make a deal. And my deal is nuclear.”
