In the US, a man was arrested for threatening Joe Biden

John Thornton is accused of sending messages in which he threatened to deal with the US president “for high treason.”

Authorities in New Mexico have arrested a man on charges of threatening to kill US President Joe Biden. This was reported on Thursday by CNN.

According to it, 39-year-old John Thornton is accused of sending messages in which he threatened to deal with the current US president “for high treason.” Thornton also sent threats to out-of-state residents.

The threatening messages were sent from the American’s phone and include photos of him, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said. They found similar content posted on Thornton’s Facebook page.

The accused will appear in court on May 28. According to the TV Company, Thornton came to the attention of law enforcement agencies in November 2020. CNN recalls that the previous arrest based on such charges was made in February of this year in the state of North Carolina. In October last year, a man was arrested in Maryland, who was accused of making threats against then-presidential and vice-presidential candidates Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
