Gary Joseph Gravelle was handed a 16-count indictment.

He threatened to kill President Trump and other federal officials.

Now, for acting like a big silly dumb-dumb, Gravelle faces upward of 140 years in the big house.

Sound about right to you?

From U.S. Attorney’s Office District of Connecticut:

Certain letters that Gravelle mailed contained a white powdery substance and statements that the substance was Anthrax, a biological agent and toxin. Gravelle made threats to various mental health providers and facilities in New Haven, U.S. Probation Officers, a U.S. District Court Judge, an international airport in Vermont, a federal prison in Washington, occupants of a building in Old Saybrook, a credit union in Bristol, and organizations and religious centers in Connecticut. He also sent a letter threatening to kill the President of the United States.

The indictment charges Gravelle with 12 counts of maliciously conveying false information about an explosive, an offense that carries a maximum term of imprisonment of 10 years on each count; three counts related to the sending of hoax Anthrax letters, and offense that carries a maximum term of imprisonment of five years on each count, and one count of making threats against the President, an offense that carries a maximum term of imprisonment of five years.

There are some things a person should never do.

High up on that list would be threatening to murder the most powerful man in the entire world, and then say you’ll go after the Pentagon.

It’s not going to end well for you. That much should be obvious.

And yet, one deranged radical didn’t get that message.

From Daily Wire:

On Wednesday, Interstate 68 in West Virginia was shut down for roughly four hours as threats were allegedly made to murder President Donald Trump and to blow up the Pentagon, according to WCHS TV. West Virginia State Police stated that a 42-year-old male was detained for questioning when police found a firearm and explosive powder in his vehicle.

Check out CBS’ “The Good Fight” tweeting an easter egg about assassinating President Trump…

CBS crime drama The Good Fight tweeted an image on Friday from a recent episode, entitled, “The One Where Diane Joins the Resistance.” The image showed a character pointing to a list of “target words” that included the phrases “Assassinate President Trump” and “Eliminate Mar-a-Lago.” The tweet, which has since been deleted, sparked backlash among Twitter users, many of whom reported CBS to the Secret Service.

Here’s what the tweet said:

Hmmm… some of those target words look a little familiar. Did you catch any easter eggs in this scene from The One Where Diane Joins The Resistance? #TheGoodFight

LOOK:

Reactions, calling for the Secret Service to intervene:

@SecretService, please investigate this assassination threat against President Trump.

Yes, @CBS this is despicable to run subliminal messages encouraging the assassination of the president @realDonaldTrump

I hope @SecretService investigates @thegoodfight thoroughly.
