HOUSTON, TEXAS: A Texas woman has been handed a 37-month federal prison term and three years of supervised release following her confession to issuing death threats against US District Judge Aileen Cannon, who presides over the classified documents mishandling case involving former President Donald Trump, reported NBC News.

As per the sentence filing, a Houston area resident, Tiffani Shea Gish, received imprisonment on Friday, February 9.

"Holding Tiffani Gish accountable for her threats to assasinate a federal judge sends a strong message that we have no tolerance for those, who often hide behind a far-off keyboard or phone line, seeking to undermine our democratic institutions by threatening the safety of the people who help those same institutions thrive," US Attorney Alamdar S Hamdani said in a statement.

Gish, arrested in Houston in 2022, pleaded guilty in November 2023.

What was Tiffani Shea Gish's threat?

According to a report by Law & Crime, Gish sent voicemails to Judge Cannon's court chamber telephone on September 1, 2022, under the name Evelyn Salt.

"Hi, yes, this message is for Aileen Cannon, this is Evelyn Salt, I'm in charge of nuclear for the United States Government. Again, Donald Trump has been disqualified long ago, and he’s marked for assassination, you’re helping him ma'am. So, here’s what we’re going to do, we’re going to let you disarm f*****g live nukes off your coffee table, how about you sit on an electric chair a couple times over, you think you’ve got the magical ability to pop up from the dead, pretending that you’re on the team of justice," the voicemail said.

Gish then threatened to assassinate the former President.

"Again, I told you he’s disqualified, he’s marked for assassination and so are you, you stupid botch, stand the f**k down or get shot, and guess what, I’m also Trump’s hitman, so consider it a bullet to your head from Donald Trump himself."

In another voicemail, she claimed her "authority exceeds the POTUS" and added she had already ordered snipers and a bomb to the judge's house.

Cannon reported the threats to the US Marshal Service on September 3, 2022. Gish was identified by her Facebook posts, which had similarities to the language of her voicemails and her cell phone number.

Gish admitted the crime after a 45-minute-long interview with federal agents.

The classified documents case, which Judge Cannon oversees, will go to trial in May.

Internet reacts

Netizens reacted to Gish's imprisonment for threatening the judge. While some agreed with it, some pointed fingers at Cannon over her support of Trump.

One user wrote, "Serve her right."



 

Another user remarked, "...that's how justice works!"



 

"As unhappy as we are, what that woman did is not the answer. Jack Smith will appeal and the Appeals Court will once again overrule the judge. Patience," a third response read.



 

One user wrote, "You’d think this experience would shape Judge Cannon’s own ruling that continues to put at risk the witnesses in the same Trump case."



 

While another opined, "Good. Threats against public officials are completely unacceptable and incompatible with a functioning democracy."



 

"She went to prison for nothing. Cannon is doing her best to help Trump. There was no need to threaten her," a sixth user said.
