Man Indicted for Threatening to Kill Adam Schiff Says He Was Likely Reacting to a Fox News Segment

An Arizona man who was arrested for allegedly leaving a voicemail at Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-Calif.) office threatening to murder the congressman says that he was likely reacting to something he saw on Fox News, according to a recent court filing.

Jan Peter Meister allegedly made the phone call on October 1, 2019, and was indicted on October 23, 2019, on charges relating to the voicemail and for possession of illegal firearms.

A police summary of their interview with the suspect reads, “Meister responded that he watches Fox News and likely was upset at something that he saw on the news. He stated that he strongly dislikes the Democrats, and feels they are to blame for the country’s political issues. Meister stated that he likely Goggled [sic] the congressman’s office number to make the call,” according to Politico.

According to a November court filing, Meister said on the voicemail, “yeah, go f*** your mother, you son of a b**ch, ’cause I’m gonna f***ing blow your brains out you f***ing piece of s*** motherf***er.”

Prosecutors have said that Meister poses a significant flight risk because he doesn’t have many ties to the community. His lawyers argued that “there is little evidence he could have carried out his alleged threat.”

This is hardly Meister’s first run-in with the law. He’s been convicted twice for sexual offenses involving minors and has been convicted three times for aggravated DUIs. When agents came to his residence to serve a warrant in late October, he allegedly told them “f*** Adam Schiff.”


  1. Shitt is a former prosecutor, which is NEVER an indicator of competence or success. q.v. his failure as the House’s committee head. He simply failed and his anti-Constitutional, rushed, and soon-to-be failed impeachment case shows his lack of competence. q.v. idiots with law degrees.

    It’s a good thing he has a taxpayer-funded career to falll bavk on.

    1. Relevance? Your first post was concerning, but at least on topic.

  2. the sad part is that Shitt has reproduced. Is the assassin willing to be thorough?

    He’s got a whole voter base of “stupid” to work through and I seriously doubt he has the mental abilities to pull it off.

    I’d implicate a “group” and plan muliple incidents in high-concentration areas. No shootings/stabbings/rental trucks needed. IEDs. chemical weapons, etc. ALL as distractions for eliminating Schitt and those around him.

    The fun thing about asymmetrical warfare is that targets DO NOT require much effort with sufficient research and preparation. Do some reading if you doubt.

    1. Has your family considered seeking help for you before agents make a visit to your home?

  3. So we should remove Jan Peter Meister’s name from the list of law-abiding gun owners we keep hearing about. 2 hand guns, an American Tactical Rifle and 700 rounds of ammo. Sounds as if he was preparing to sign up for Screw’s Civil War 2.0.
