An Arizona man has been indicted for allegedly threatening to kill Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., The Hill reports.

Schiff served as one of the Democratic House impeachment managers in the the Senate trial against President Donald Trump.

The Hill quoted newly released court documents that show Jan Peter Meister was indicted Oct. 23 after he allegedly left a voicemail message for Schiff saying, "I'm gonna f****** blow your brains out you f****** piece of s***."

Meister is a convicted felon who told investigator "he watches Fox News and likely was upset at something that he saw on the news," reads a summary of a pre-arrest interview that was included in the court filing, according to The Hill.

Meister subsequently looked up the phone number for Schiff's Washington, D.C. office on the Internet and made the call, according to the report.

Charges inclued one count of issuing threats through interstate commerce, and a one count for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. A semi-automatic rifle, two handguns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition were found during a search of Meister's residence.

Neither Meister's attorney, Fox News, nor Schiff had commented, according to The Hill.
