Texan Woman Detained for Threatening Judge in Trump Case

Washington:  A Texan woman was apprehended last week for purportedly issuing death threats against the judge assigned to preside over former President Donald Trump’s 2020 election interference lawsuit in Washington, D.C., as indicated by official court documents.

The accused, Abigail Jo Shry, allegedly left a racially charged voicemail on Aug. 5 for D.C. District Judge Tanya Chutkan, uttering hateful threats like “You are in our sights, we want to kill you,” along with menacing statements aimed at former President Trump and Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, among others.

The FBI affidavit states that Shry also declared her intention to target anyone associated with the LGBTQ community. Moreover, she explicitly warned, “If Trump doesn’t get elected in 2024, we are coming to kill you.”

Upon a subsequent visit by DHS Special Agents, Shry admitted to placing the call but denied any intention to carry out the threats. Nonetheless, she expressed concern if Rep. Jackson Lee visited her hometown of Alvin, Texas.

Given her history of similar conduct, Shry has been ordered detained for 30 days by a Southern District of Texas judge, as she faces multiple other criminal charges.

Shry’s background reveals a history of substance abuse and major depression, with her father attesting to her routine of consuming alcohol while watching the news.

Former President Trump has continued to criticize Judge Chutkan on his Truth Social platform, despite her warning that such attacks could expedite his trial.
