A woman from the Chicago area found herself in legal trouble after reportedly making alarming email threats against Trump and his youngest son, Barron Trump, 17, through a series of emails sent to a Florida school. Her court appearance was scheduled for Monday.
Alarming Email Threats Against Trump and Son
Tracy Marie Fiorenza was taken into custody and now faces serious charges following her alarming email threats against Trump.
The incident revolves around two alarming email threats against Trump that Fiorenza allegedly sent to the headmaster of a school located in Palm Beach County, Florida, during the months of May and June. In these emails, she explicitly threatened to take the lives of both Trump and his son, promising to “shoot Trump and his son straight in the face at any opportunity” she could find.
She went on to declare her intention to “slam a bullet in Barron Trump’s head with his father” in what she claimed was an act of self-defense. These alarming email threats against Trump were detailed in a formal complaint filed on August 9.
According to the Guardian, the alarming email threats against Trump were sent to the unidentified head of an educational institution in Palm Beach County, southern Florida, where Trump has his primary residence, club, the Mar-a-Lago resort, and residence complex in Palm Beach.
Investigation of Alarming Email Threats Against Trump and Son
The investigation into Fiorenza’s actions began in June when she was contacted regarding the alarming email threats against Trump, Forbes reported.
Fiorenza not only admitted to writing the alarming email threats against Trump but also confessed to sending them from her residence in Illinois. This admission led to her subsequent arrest and the initiation of legal proceedings against her.
Fiorenza now faces a single count of transmitting threats to kill or injure another person in interstate commerce. This federal charge carries severe penalties, with a maximum sentence of five years in federal prison and the possibility of a substantial fine, up to $250,000, as per court documents.
Fiorenza’s case will proceed through the court system. She had a scheduled court appearance in Chicago federal court on Monday, but it is highly likely that she will eventually be transferred to Florida, where the charges against her were initially filed, according to CBS reports.
