Texan accused of threatening FBI agent involved in Hunter Biden investigation

A Texas man was charged Thursday with threatening a federal agent apparently involved in the Hunter investigation into Biden and swearing that the agents would be thrown in jail after a new president was elected.

The names are not specified in the criminal complaint, but the threatened FBI agent “was known to have been involved in an investigation into a laptop belonging to HB,” and the threatening call was made Tuesday after “HB ” was convicted for this affair. With a 2018 gun purchase, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Texas said.

Timothy Muller, 43, was arrested Thursday morning outside his Fort Worth home and is charged with threatening interstate communications and influencing, obstructing or retaliating against a federal official, the U.S. attorney’s office said.

He called the FBI agent, whose name was published in the media during Hunter Biden’s trial, which ended in conviction, at 5:03 p.m. on the day the verdict in the case was announced Biden, prosecutors said.

“You can run, but you can’t.” [expletive] hide,” Muller said in a voicemail that also included allegations of child pornography and abuse, the prosecutor’s office said in a statement. The president’s son has never been charged with such crimes.

A Delaware jury on Tuesday convicted Biden, President Joe Biden’s son, of three federal gun charges related to purchasing and possessing a handgun while he was addicted to illegal drugs.

Muller in the voicemail apparently also referenced false claims by former President Donald Trump that the 2020 election was stolen as part of threats against the agent, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

“So here’s how it’s going to go: [T’s] we’re going to win re-election, and then we’re going to [expletive] go through the FBI and start throwing you away [expletive]“I’m in jail,” Muller said, according to the statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office. “Or, you can steal another election, and then the guns will come out.”

The affidavit, which is part of a criminal complaint, lists the candidate only as “T.” A spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney’s Office would not confirm the identities of “HB” and “T.” mentioned in the criminal complaint.

Muller also threatened the officer’s family and called him a “traitor,” according to the affidavit.

He sent a text message to the officer that said: “Did you [redacted] Do you really think you were going to disenfranchise 75 million Americans without dying? Lol,” according to the affiliate.

False claims about a stolen 2020 election are widespread among Trump supporters, and many have signaled reluctance to accept the results of the 2024 election if Trump does not win. Trump has repeatedly and wrongly cast doubt on the results of the 2020 election, which he lost.

Trump’s 2024 campaign is increasingly carrying a message of retribution and vengeance after he was convicted late last month of 34 counts in a New York state court.

Muller was taken into custody pending a detention and preliminary hearing scheduled for Tuesday, according to court records. A federal public defender named as having been appointed to represent him did not immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday evening.

The charges carry a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison if convicted, the U.S. attorney’s office said.
