Texas Woman Accused of Making Death Threat Against Judge in Trump Case

A Texas woman from Alvin, Texas, named Abigail Jo Shry has been arrested and charged with threatening to kill the federal judge overseeing the criminal case against former President Donald Trump in Washington. According to court records, Shry called the federal courthouse in Washington and left a threatening message for U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan on August 5th. Investigators were able to trace her phone number, and she later admitted to making the threatening call.

In the message, Shry reportedly used a racist term for Judge Chutkan and stated, “You are in our sights, we want to kill you.” She also threatened to kill U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, a Texas Democrat running for mayor of Houston. Prosecutors have filed charges against Shry for these threats.

Shry has been ordered to be jailed, and she is represented by the Houston public defender’s office. As of now, there has been no comment from her legal representation.

It is worth noting that Former President Trump has been critical of Judge Chutkan in the past, calling her “highly partisan” and “VERY BIASED & UNFAIR!” due to her previous comments in a separate case involving the sentencing of a defendant charged in the January 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol.

In a recent hearing, Judge Chutkan imposed a protective order in the case, limiting the public disclosure of evidence by prosecutors and Trump’s legal team. She reminded Trump’s lawyers that the defense should be presented in the courtroom and not on the internet.

ViralNewsScope’s Perspective:
Threats against public officials, regardless of political affiliations, are serious offenses and should be condemned. It is important to remember that disagreements and disputes can and should be resolved through legal and peaceful means. Resorting to violence or threats undermines the principles of democracy and the rule of law.
