Nicholas Bukoski indicted by a grand jury on charges of threatening or assaulting Senators Harris and Sanders
"A man has been indicted on charges of threatening to murder two prominent liberal senators — Vermont Independent Bernie Sanders and California Democrat Kamala Harris — as well as to harm participants in the "March for Our Lives" gun control rally held on the National Mall in March.
The five-count grand jury indictment of Nicholas Bukoski was revealed Wednesday by the Washington D.C. branch of the U.S. District Court. It contains few details of the alleged threats but indicates they all occurred on March 24, the day of the rally.
The indictment was issued in April but held under seal until late last week, when Bukoski was taken into federal custody, and wasn't revealed publicly until Wednesday."
Bukoski is charged with two counts of threatening to assault or murder members of Congress and three counts of transmitting threats via interstate commerce. "
