Texas Man Charged for Voicemail Threatening Violence Against Federal Agent

(BrightPress.org) – A 43-year-old man from Fort Worth, Timothy Muller, is facing charges for threatening an FBI agent. The Justice Department revealed the charges on Thursday, detailing a series of threatening communications Muller allegedly directed at the agent.

It all started on June 11th, when Muller called the agent and left a disturbing voicemail. According to officials, Muller threatened the agent and his family, saying things like, “You can run, but you can’t [expletive] hide,” and suggested that former President Donald Trump would win re-election and then target the FBI. He also implied that if another election were “stolen,” guns would be used to hunt down and kill the agent in their home.

The agent in question was reportedly involved in an investigation related to a laptop belonging to “H.B.,” who was recently convicted in a trial involving a 2018 firearm purchase. Sources believe this “H.B.” refers to Hunter Biden.

Following the voicemail, Muller sent a series of text messages to the agent. One message threatened that the agent would be sent to jail and ominously asked about the agent’s family’s safety. Another message taunted the agent, stating that no one is afraid of the FBI.

Authorities were able to trace the threatening messages back to Muller in Fort Worth. He was arrested outside his home on the morning of June 13th without incident. The charges against him include interstate threatening communications and influencing, impeding, or retaliating against a federal official. If found guilty, Muller could face up to 10 years in federal prison.

This incident underscores the dangers federal agents can face in the course of their duties, particularly those involved in high-profile investigations. The Justice Department and FBI are taking these threats seriously, with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Texas leading the prosecution.

Muller’s attorney has not yet commented on the charges. For now, Muller remains detained pending a hearing next week. The case continues to develop as more details emerge about the investigation and the extent of the threats made.
