"A criminal complaint was unsealed earlier today in federal court in Brooklyn charging Brian Maiorana, a resident of Staten Island, with threatening to kill and ordering others to kill protestors, politicians and law enforcement in retaliation for the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election", the press release, which was published late on Tuesday, read.
The acting US attorney for the Eastern District of New York, Seth DuCharme, said that tweets published by Maiorana, which cited William Luther Pierce's "The Turner Diaries", a popular book among white supremacists and neo-Nazis, violated federal law and were a danger to society.
"Mr. Maiorana’s online posts called for violence against our entire community—protestors, politicians, and law enforcement officers alike. His alleged threats are disturbing and far outside of acceptable norms, but they also violated federal law", DuCharme said in the press release.
In a tweet posted on Sunday, Maiorana said that the 2020 presidential election had been "fraudulently stolen from us", the attorney's office stated.
US media outlets have called Democratic candidate Joe Biden's victory in the election, although Trump is still yet to concede defeat.
