Thomas Welnicki of Rockaway Beach, New York, said during a phone call around July 21, 2020, that he would take violent action against then-President Trump if he did not step down upon losing the election.

Mr. Welnicki allegedly told Capitol Police during a phone call around July 21, 2020, that if Trump lost the presidential election that November and “refused to step down,” he would “acquire weapons” and “take him down.”

The document does not name Trump directly but notes that “individual-1” served as the U.S. president from Jan. 20, 2017, until Jan. 20, 2021.

Welnicki also allegedly bragged to Capitol Police about how easy it was for him to get a firearm, adding, “I don’t want to hurt anyone, but I will stand up to fascism.”
