FBI investigating social media threat calling for Brett Kavanaugh’s murder — Video

On Monday, KSTP Eyewitness News reported that the FBI is looking into a threatening tweet placed on social media Saturday that appears to advocate the murder of newly-confirmed U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

“So whose (sic) gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh?” the tweet read.  The threatening message was removed and we understand the Twitter account was deleted, but not before the tweet was captured for posterity:


She followed that up with: “Brett kavanaugh (sic) will be dealing with death threats for the rest of his life being on the Supreme Court. I doubt my mid-west a*s is a real threat”

A post at identified the person who allegedly sent the tweet as Samantha Ness, an employee with the Alliance Education Center in the Rosemount School District.

The post added:

In the wake of her tweet going viral, Ness has deleted her Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts. However, several users were quick to grab screenshots, and the Google cache for her Twitter account still reveals her most recent tweets.

Prior to deleting her account, Ness’s Twitter bio read, “I don’t even know what I’m upset about.”

Her most recent tweet was posted late Monday morning. She wrote, “Being called a fat ugly c*nt by a random guy on Twitter is probably the highlight of my entire life.”

On Monday, Mark A. Zuzek, Superintendent for Intermediate School District #917, issued the following statement:

Over the weekend, the district has received a complaint regarding an employee.  The employee has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

Pursuant with the data practices act, we are limited to providing additional information regarding this matter.

According to KSTP, local authorities are not investigating the matter since the tweet was reportedly sent from a home not located in the county.

Kavanaugh, the newest justice to be seated on the Supreme Court, is set to hear his first case on Tuesday.

Ness, said, has yet to make a statement regarding her suspension.
