Nevada prosecutors indicted John Anthony Miller, 43, alleging that he made multiple violent phone calls between Oct. 11 through Oct. 19 to Sen. Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) and also showed up at a courthouse trying to see the legislator.

Miller appeared in a Las Vegas court on Oct. 27, when he was charged with threatening a federal official. Authorities have not charged Miller with a hate crime.

Statements Miller allegedly made include “you f****** piece of s*** un­-human, subhuman, you’re vermin, b****, you are vermin, b****, and we’re gonna finish what Hitler started you  f****** slut.”

Miller allegedly threatened Rosen, saying on voicemail, “you are f****** evil, b****, and we’re gonna exterminate you … ,” and “You’re gonna burn in hell, b****, and me and Jesus are gonna piss on you, b****.”

A spokesperson for Rosen said the senator “trusts the U.S. Attorney’s office and federal law enforcement to handle this matter.”
In Nevada, threatening a government official qualifies as a class-C felony with offenders facing a minimum sentence of one year and a maximum of five, as well as a fine of not more than $10,000.
