Man threatened with murder threat 2 Senators supporting Kavanaugh



A 74-year-old Long Island man was arrested on Friday after being charged with giving two US Senators death threats in retaliation for supporting Brett M. Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.

The man, Ronald DeRisi, threatened to assassinate and assassinate senators – who were not named – in more than 10 voicemail messages left to their offices following a complaint prepared by the United States Capitol Police.

The voicemail news, Mr. DeRisi, who comes from Smithtown, New York, used threats of assault adulterated to stop senators approving Judge Kavanaugh's nomination and then admonished one for it, it was said in the complaint

. DeRisi was sentenced to jail by a federal judge on Friday for threatening the community, said John Marzulli, spokesman for the US Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York. The judge also ordered a psychological examination.

Following a search warrant, investigators at Mr. DeRisi found ammunition for a 9-millimeter cannon at home, Marzulli said. They found a BB gun in the house, but no firearms, he said.

Peter De Bris, Mr. DeRisis lawyer, said his client had a serious dementia that led to a pattern of behavioral problems.

"He has to the point where he is unable to understand right and wrong," said Mr. Brill. "He does not have full control over his abilities."

One of the senators received the first of two voicemail messages on September 27, threatening to shoot the officer in the head with a 9-millimeter cannon. Mr Brill said his client owned firearms but gave them to a family member.

On October 6, the day of the Senate's confirmation vote, the other Senator received a voicemail message warning, "Pray better do not let this boy go in," the complaint said. Less than an hour later, the same caller left a voicemail message in which he read the Senator's home address.

In a statement released Friday, Richard P. Donoghue, US Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, said law enforcement agencies would not tolerate threats of violence to win a political row.

"Representative democracy can not work if elected officials are threatened death for simply their work," he said.
