Biden’s Life Threatened Twice In Less Than Two Weeks
In less than two weeks there have been two men charged with threatening to kill President Joe Biden, authorities announced Monday.
Scott Ryan Merryman, 37, of Independence, Kansas, was arrested after he called the police to inform them that Biden is the antichrist and that he was on his way to Washington, D.C., to meet Biden and “lop off the head of the serpent in the heart of the nation,” according to an FBI agent’s affidavit.
“Merryman denied that the serpent was the President of the United States, but stated that he had information about the Book of Revelation that he was being instructed by God to give to the President,” the affidavit read.
Merryman was charged with making threats against the President of the United States and interstate communication with a threat to harm, according to the Department of Justice. If convicted, he could face up to five years in federal prison for each charge.
Ryan Matthew Conlon, 37, of Halethorpe, Maryland, was arrested after he threatened to bomb the National Security Agency (NSA) headquarters, according to the FBI.
Conlon sent several messages to NSA and FBI tiplines threatening to bomb the White House and kill Biden. He also threatened to carry out a mass shooting on NSA employees.
“Conlon apologized for sending threats when he becomes angry,” the FBI said.
