New York man pleads guilty to making death threats against Rep. Ilhan Omar

The upstate New York man who called Rep. Ilhan Omar’s office and threatened to shoot her after calling her a “terrorist” pleaded guilty to the crime on Monday.

Patrick Carlineo, 55, now faces up to 10 years in prison for the March 21 threat. He’s scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 13.

Carlineo was arrested after the incident and later told federal investigators that he is a “patriot” and that he hates radical Muslims who are critical of President Trump.

“He has taken responsibility for using threatening and inappropriate language to express [his] beliefs in this instance,” his lawyer said in a statement.
