The former cameraman for ABC, NBC, and CNN is now arrested because he threatened to kill Rep. Matt Gaetz and his future children.
Eugene Gene Hulsman, 58, was imprisoned in Los Angeles on an indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Pensacola, Florida.
Tell [M.G.] to watch his back, tell him to watch his children,” Huelsman told Gaetz’s office on Jan. 9, according to the two-page indictment shielding the lawmaker’s name as “M.G.” that was obtained by Law & Crime. “I’m coming for him, he’s gonna fucking die… I’m gonna fucking kill him… Watch your back, I’m coming for you. I’m gonna put a bullet in you and I’m gonna put a bullet in one of your fucking kids too.”
The indictment was filed in May, be no one wanted to arrest this person until Gaetz complained about to the House floor, claiming that the DOJ didn’t take these threats seriously.
“I think someone may be trying to kill me and if they are successful I would like my constituents and my family to know who stopped their arrest,” Gaetz said
In the past, Huelsman got five Emmy nominations for his work in N BC’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien.
Gatez confirmed to Politico that he was the target of the threats.
“An indictment was issued in May, and has now been unsealed the week after my criticism,” Gaetz said. “If they took our security seriously, they would arrest all of the people who violate federal law and the threats to kill us, not just some of them… I think that the Department of Justice is biased against Republicans.”
