(28 U.S.C. , 566(e)(1)(A)). US Marshal Conrad Candelaria said, “First, I want to thank our federal partners FBI and US Attorney’s Office. The United States Marshals Service considers any threat to our judiciary no matter how minor or large as a serious matter. We will investigate and request that they be prosecuted under the full extent of the law.””
