Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “US Capitol protester charged with threatening to ‘assassinate’ AOC”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Garrett Miller is facing five criminal charges, including “knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted buildings or grounds without lawful authority.” 

On top of his participation in the Capitol siege, Miller is in legal trouble for posts he made online during and after the riot that ended up leaving five dead, including one officer.

Miller also threatened the officer who shot and killed protester Ashli Babbitt, an act that was caught on camera. Miller said the officer “deserved to die” and that he wouldn’t live long because it was “hunting season.”

Miller was open about his involvement in the riot, posting a selfie of him in the Capitol to Facebook, joking that he wanted to “incriminate” himself.

“Well, you did,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted in direct response to the photos and his arrest.
