A man from California has been arrested after allegedly threatening to bomb and shoot the staff of The Boston Globe in retaliation for the newspaper's critical editorials about President Trump.
Robert Chain, 63, was arrested in Encino on Thursday after making threats in phone calls to the Massachusetts newspaper, which he described as "the enemy of the people", borrowing from Trump's unflattering descriptions of the press.
According to prosecutors, he called the newspaper after making a rally to other media to publish editorials about Trump's combative relationship with what he calls the "mainstream media."
Over the course of a week, he called employees 14 times threatening to kill them, the prosecution said.
Chain is scheduled to appear in court in Encino on Thursday afternoon before being extradited to Boston to face charges.
Among the recorded calls is one in which he allegedly threatened to shoot a journalist in the head at 16:00 that day.
& # 39; & # 39; You are the enemy of the people and we are going to kill each one of you.
– Hey, why do not you call the F, why do not you call Mueller, maybe he can help you, buddy? There is still f **** t? All right, why are you going to track my call?
& # 39; What are you going to do motherf *****? You will not do s ***
& # 39; I'll shoot you in the head of f ****** later today. 4:00. Goodbye, "he said.
