COLORADO, USA — A federal grand jury indicted a Colorado man who is accused of threatening to kill or assault several members of Congress over a period of several months.
The 10-count indictment was returned against Malachi Mathias Moon Seals related to threats made between November 2021 and January 2022.
In one instance in November, he was accused of threatening in a web communication to assault or murder a member of Congress with the initials MM with the intent to impede or interfere with that person's official duties.
Similar threats were also made against a member of Congress with the initials LB and in December, he was accused of threatening LB's "immediate family members."
That same month, Moon Seals was accused threatening a Congress member with initials JM and their immediate family.
An arrest warrant was issued for Moon Seals on Aug. 2. He appeared in court the next day, where he entered a plea of not guilty, federal court records show.
He was granted a personal recognizance bond and is no longer in custody.
As a condition of Moon Seal's release, he will have to check in for supervision in Colorado Springs. He's not allowed to possess a firearm and cannot communicate with any government official or agency, according to court records.
