Among McGowan’s tweets that reportedly triggered his arrest Friday were one that told Goodlatte, “you keep f***ing with our constitution and challenging Mueller and the last you see will be my patriot a** behind a gun you should have long ago have prevented me owning pulling a trigger to your head. Want me arrested? GO head.”
Another referred to that threat and then bragged about having “threatened my congressman with violence” and “stated I would kill people” but that he believed he could “purchase a gun three days from now and NOT be locked up in jail.”
As of 7:00 pm ET Saturday, not only has Twitter not suspended McGowan (username @LittleMacMcG), the actual tweets he posted threatening to shoot and kill Goodlatte have not been taken down.
