Texas woman arrested on charges she made death threats to judge in Mar-a-Lago documents case
In a court filing, prosecutors said Tiffani Gish has a history of “delusional conduct” and previously made threats against Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
A Texas woman has been arrested for allegedly making death threats against Aileen Cannon, the judge presiding over former President Donald Trump’s court fight against the Justice Department over national security documents seized from his Florida resort.
Tiffani Gish was arrested last week in the Houston area after she admitted to federal marshals that she had left three threatening voicemails for Cannon, telling her she was “marked for assassination” and that she planned to shoot her in front of her family, a federal criminal complaint says.
Gish also made a number of outlandish comments in the Sept. 1 calls, saying she’s “in charge of nuclear” for the country and has a “license to kill,” the court filings said. At one point in the voicemails she said she’s working for Trump as his “hitman,” while at another point she accused Trump of having orchestrated the Sept. 11 attacks and claimed he is marked for assassination as well, they said.
