Man charged with threatening to kill GOP candidate Vivek Ramaswamy

On Monday, August 12th, authorities in New York City arrested 24 year-old Timothy Farina on charges related to threatening to kill Republican Congressional candidate Vivek Ramaswamy.

The charges stem from a series of threatening emails Farina allegedly sent to Ramaswamy. The emails included profanity and violent threats of killing the candidate.

According to authorities, Farina is being charged with making a terrorist threat in the second degree and one count of aggravated harassment. He faces up to seven years in prison if convicted.

Ramaswamy released a statement expressing his outrage and thanking authorities for their swift response in apprehending Farina. He called the threats “unacceptable” and said that no one should ever be subject to the type of harassment he received.

The case is currently under investigation and more information is expected to be released in the coming days.
