Fort Worth Man Charged with Threatening FBI Agent

A Fort Worth man has been charged with threatening an FBI agent involved in a high-profile investigation, announced U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas Leigha Simonton. 

Timothy Muller, 43, was charged via criminal complaint on Thursday with interstate threatening communications and influencing, impeding, or retaliating against a federal official. He was arrested outside his home on Thursday morning without incident.

According to the complaint, Mr. Muller allegedly placed a call to an FBI special agent at 5:03 p.m. on June 11. 

The agent was known to have been involved in an investigation into a laptop belonging to H.B. Shortly before Mr. Muller allegedly placed his call to the agent, media outlets reported that H.B. had been convicted following a trial related to a 2018 firearm purchase. 

According to the complaint, Mr. Muller said, “hey,” and the agent disconnected the call. Mr. Muller immediately called back and allegedly left a one-minute and five-second message threatening the agent and his family: 

“You can run, but you can’t [expletive] hide,” Mr. Muller allegedly said. “ You covered up child pornography.  You covered up [H.B.] raping his own [expletive] niece.”  

“So here’s how it’s gonna go,” Mr. Muller allegedly continued. “[T.]’s gonna win the re-election, and then we’re gonna [expletive] go through the FBI and just start throwing you [expletive]s into jail.  Or, you can steal another election, and then the guns will come out, and we’ll hunt you [expletive]s down and slaughter you like the traitorous dogs you are in your own [expletive] homes.  In your own [expletive] beds.  The last thing you’ll ever hear are the horrified shrieks of your widow and orphans.  And then you know what we’re going to do? … We’re going to slaughter your whole [expletive] family.” 

Mr. Muller then allegedly sent the agent several texts, writing, “How’s the family? Safe?” and “Did you [expletive]s really think you were going to disenfranchise 75 million Americans and not die? Lol.”

A criminal complaint is merely an allegation of criminal conduct, not evidence. Mr. Muller is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. 

If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in federal prison. 

The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Dallas Field Office conducted the investigation. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Texas is prosecuting the case.
