A Texas male who participated in the attack on the United States Capitol on 6 January has actually been charged with threatening to “assassinate” the New York Democratic agent Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Garret Miller of Texas deals with five criminal charges emerging from his involvement in the pro-Trump riot, including “intentionally going into or staying in any limited structures or grounds without lawful authority” and making dangers.
