FBI Investigates US Senator Death Threat

FBI Investigates US Senator Death Threat

(AbsoluteNews.com) – The partisan rhetoric in America seems worse than it’s ever been before. Every day, people make threatening comments on social media to their political rivals. Recently, one senator received a threat that went beyond mean words on the internet.

On Monday, May 24, a package arrived at Senator Rand Paul’s (R-KY) Kentucky home. It was filled with a white powder and contained a bruised, bandaged photo of the senator with a gun to his head. Under the picture, the sender wrote that he was going to “finish what [his] neighbor started.” The threat was a reference to a 2017 assault on Senator Paul by his neighbor.

Paul took to Twitter, saying the platform allows “C-list celebrities to encourage violence” against him and his family every day. The senator’s wife also sounded off about the threats.

The FBI is now investigating the threat against the senator. No suspects have been named in the incident.
