(TruthAndLiberty.com) – A 50-year-old woman in Houston has been sentenced to three years in prison after she threatened U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon, who is overseeing former President Donald Trump’s classified documents case.

Tiffani Gish had originally pleaded guilty in November and was sentenced on Friday for “using interstate communications.”

According to the Department of Justice, the woman had left three voicemails threatening that she belonged to a military combat unit and that she was “familiar with weapons of war.” In two other voicemails, she threatened that Cannon would be shot “in the head.” In the messages, she also reiterates all the threats and claims to have bought snipers and even made a bomb threat to Cannon’s house.

U.S. District Judge David Hittner sentenced Gish to 37 months in federal prison and is to remain in custody until she can be transferred to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility.

U.S. Attorney Alamdar S. Hamdani released a statement on the importance of holding Gish accountable in order to show that they have no tolerance for any threats against federal judges by those who are trying to undermine the country’s ‘democratic institutions.

Trump’s classified documents case has a May 2024 trial date. Trump has been accused of having kept classified documents after leaving the White House in 2021. This is only one of the criminal cases against Trump, who is likely to be the Republican nominee in the upcoming presidential election.

Several months earlier, a different Texas woman was arrested for having made threats to kill U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan, who is overseeing the election interference case against Trump.
