Trump supporters are threatening the lives of the judge and his family because the judge signed the FBI search warrant for Mar-a-Lago.
Multiple members of these toxic online communities are even posting what appears to be Judge Bruce Reinhart’s home address, phone numbers, and names of his family members alongside threats of extreme violence.
“This is the piece of sh*t judge who approved FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago,” a user wrote on the pro-Trump message board formerly known as TheDonald. “I see a rope around his neck.”
In another post on the same message board, one user commented, “Let’s find out if he has children….where they go to school, where they live…EVERYTHING.”
From the same people who brought the nation the 1/6 attack on the Capitol comes let’s kill a judge and his family because he signed a search warrant for the FBI to seize criminal evidence that Donald Trump lied about and refused to turn over to the federal government.
Trump is trying to incite his violent far-right mob through posts on his social media platform describing the lawful warrant as a surprise attack. The judge did nothing wrong, and the FBI and DOJ have done nothing wrong.
Donald Trump is turning to his violent mob again as he has run into a situation he can’t control. Trump could not stop the election from being certified on 1/6, so he tried to keep power by force.
Trump can’t stop the FBI from investigating him, so he is trying to halt future investigations by mobilizing his supporters against the DOJ and the judge.
The 1/6 pattern is playing out again, as this time, the violent Trump supporters are threatening a judge.
