A California man pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court to charges that he threatened to kill employees of the Globe while the news organization led a national editorial campaign against President Trump’s attacks on journalism.

Robert D. Chain, 68, is facing sentencing Sept. 23. He and his attorney declined to speak when they left US District Court in Boston.

Chain made an estimated 14 calls to the Globe’s newsroom in August during which he repeatedly vowed to attack journalists on behalf of Trump, who has repeatedly denounced news organizations as the “enemy of the people.”

During the time Chain made his alleged threats, the Globe’s editorial board called on journalists nationwide, regardless of political viewpoints, to address Trump’s “deluge of dishonesty” that is undermining the “role of the free press to speak truth to the powerful.”

Chain started calling the Globe on Aug. 10 and continued until the FBI’s SWAT team arrested him at his Encino, Calif., home, where they discovered 20 firearms, including a semiautomatic rifle he purchased in May 2018, records show. He is not facing charges related to the firearms.

Chain was indicted on seven counts of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat to injure another person based on the calls to the Globe’s main newsroom telephone line. Court records include partial transcripts of his comments, which often contained expletives and lewd language directed at Globe journalists.

A California man has been charged with making violent threats to Boston Globe employees after the newspaper organized a response to Trump's attacks. Man charged with making threats to Boston Globe , calling paper 'enemy of the people'.

WASHINGTON — The F.B.I. said on Thursday that it charged a California man who threatened to kill employees of The Boston Globe after calling them the “enemy of the people” in a series of menacing phone calls. Robert D. Chain, 68, was arrested on Thursday at his home in Encino, Calif .

“You are the enemy of the people,’’ Chain allegedly said on Aug. 13. “We will hunt you down and kill you and your dogs.”

Two days later, he called again and made reference to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who was then in the initial stages of his investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russian government officials.

“We’re going to kill every [expletive] one of you. Go [expletive] yourself. Call the FBI. Go get some help from [expletive] Mueller okay you [expletive],’’ he allegedly said. “You’re a dead man.”

On Aug. 16, Chain vowed to murder a Globe journalist at 4 p.m. that day, according to federal court records.

Chain has not been charged with placing calls to any other organizations, but prosecutors said in court papers that Chain allegedly made similar telephone calls to New York Times columnist Bret Stephens.

In a plea agreement filed in court, US Attorney Andrew Lelling’s office said US District Court Judge William G. Young would be asked to impose a prison sentence at the “low end” of federal sentencing guidelines for Chain, who has no prior criminal history.

According to prosecutors, Chain faces 35 years in prison if given the maximum five-year sentence for each count.

He also would be on court supervision for three years and could face a fine.

Young is not bound by the recommendation from the prosecution or from Chain’s defense attorney, William D. Weinreb, who has not yet filed his recommendations.
