A Michigan man has been charged with threat of terrorism and using a computer to commit a crime after he made death threats against President Joe Biden, U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, MLive reports.
Joshua Docter, 21, allegedly threatened to shoot and kill all three and "'be the catalyst' for a new American revolution," police said. He turned himself in Tuesday.
"Threatening elected officials is against the law and my office will prosecute those who attempt to intimidate or terrorize our state and federal leaders," State Attorney General Dana Nessel said in a statement.
"In those posts, Docter stated he would use a gun to shoot and kill the elected officials and would 'be the catalyst' for a new American revolution," Nessel continued, referring to the threats that were made in late January.
Docter reportedly had instructions on how to make a bomb on his phone. He was released on $5,000 personal-recognizance bond.
