A Chicago man registered an appalling new political action committee (PAC) on Wednesday titled, “I AM GOING TO ASSASSINATE PRESIDENT DONALD J TRUMP.” The name, officially registered in all capital letters, according to The Washington Free Beacon, was filed with the Federal Election Commission by an individual named Freddy Black.
The Beacon reports: Black filed the paperwork and wrote, “Send donations to reward my assassination of Donald J Trump to: Freddy Black, 3001 S King Drive Apt 1118, Chicago IL 60616. Or to my IDOC Parole Agent Mr. Done Let”s get him assassinated in the next 24 hours!! Then I”ll kill all the KKK motherfu**ers too [sic].”
It is unclear if Freddy Black is the actual name or a pseudonym of the individual behind the PAC. The address that Black provides in his filing leads to an apartment complex on the south side of Chicago.
In the filing, Black is also listed as the PAC’s treasurer. “Hacker” and “assassin” are his listed titles.
The Secret Service was contacted for a comment about the new PAC. The Beacon reports that a spokesperson replied: “The Secret Service is aware of the organization’s statement but as a matter of practice we do not comment on protective intelligence investigations.”

In a related incident, a Utah man named Travis Luke Dominguez was indicted earlier this month for making threat against President Trump and police. He was indicted on multiple charges of threatening to kill Trump, as well as people in a Utah movie theater complex, a bank, and another business.
In another threat against Republicans, an unidentified person from Paragould, Ark. admitted to sending threatening tweets against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Kent.), and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt, which were serious enough to spark an FBI investigation. Reportedly, he was inspired to make the threats after watching an April 2017 episode of MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show.
