Miller allegedly tweeted, “assassinate AOC,” on the day of the siege, according to court documents, CNN reports.
He also said the police officer who fatally shot a Trump supporter during the attack “deserves to die” and won’t “survive long” because it’s “hunting season.”
Prosecutors said Miller made numerous threatening remarks online, including one instance in which he commented “next time we bring the guns” on a Twitter video showing rioters exiting a Capitol building.
Miller later posted a death threat (“Assassinate AOC”) to Ocasio-Cortez after she condemned the attack on Twitter, the charging document shows.
He was arrested on Wednesday, according to the Justice Department. Federal prosecutors are asking a judge to keep him in jail.
