A man from Stuart, Florida, has been arrested after threatening to kill Republican Rep. Brian Mast’s children over President Donald Trump’s family separation policy.
Lawrence Key was arrested after allegedly making a threatening call to Mast’s Washington office on Monday, WPTV reported.
Key is accused of telling an intern who answered the phone “I’m going to find the congressman’s kids and kill them. If you’re going to separate kids at the border, I’m going to kill his kids. Don’t try to find me because you won’t.”
After the intern reported the call to a supervisor, the FBI began an investigation and Key was arrested shortly thereafter, documents show.
