According to federal prosecutors and a recently unsealed criminal complaint, federal investigators detained a woman in Chicago on Monday on charges of sending emails threatening to shoot former President Donald Trump and his son Barron.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Chicago stated that, Tracy Marie Fiorenza, 41, was arrested on Monday morning on a charge of communicating threats to murder or harm.
The complaint was filed earlier this month in the U.S. District Court in southern Florida, but it was only recently unsealed.
Fiorenza’s Facebook profile posts showed that she is a self-described “black magick occultist” and that the 41-year-old refers to herself as “Tracy Fiorenza De Rothschild,” referencing the famous Rothschild family.
Fiorenza’s social media presence also made it clear that she is a far-left extremist and conspiracy theorist who often mentions both Donald Trump and his son Barron. Additionally, she claims to be in the “Illuminati” secret society.
“I will state that I will shoot Donald Trump Sr. AND Barron Trump straight in the face at any opportunity I get!,” Fiorenza said in a May 21st email to the head of an educational institution in Palm Beach, Florida, according to an affidavit accompanying the complaint.
The former 45th president mostly resides in the Palm Beach region of Florida at Mar-a-Lago.
According to an affidavit presented by a U.S. Secret Service agent, Fiorenza reportedly wrote a similar email on June 5th, claiming she would “slam a bullet” into Barron Trump “with his father IN SELF DEFENSE!”
The criminal documents made no mention of the headmaster or the institution where the emails were said to have been exchanged.
It was also unclear whether Fiorenza had counsel who could speak on her behalf.
She was scheduled to appear in court in Chicago on Monday and could be moved to a district court in Florida to address the accusations. The affidavit stated that Fiorenza was interrogated at the agency’s Chicago field on June 14th and was handed copies of the emails.
According to the report, Fiorenza currently resides in Plainfield, Illinois, and her Facebook page states that she was a former high school teacher for a number of years in intercity Chicago .
If convicted, she faces up to at least 5 years in prison.
