SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah man has been arrested on accusations he threatened to kill members of Congress during a three-year stretch with more than 2,000 phone calls to the U.S. Capitol and profanity-laden tirades about Democrats threatening the presidency of Donald Trump .

The indictment went on to quote Dominguez as saying, "I'm going to kill the sexist racist homophobic President Trump today. Nothing you can do to save President Trump nor stop me pigs."

CNN has no confirmation of Dominguez's claim that he is a SEAL. A motion filed Wednesday said Dominguez was confined in Utah state prison and was due to appear in court on Thursday afternoon.

Melodie Rydalch, a spokeswoman for US Attorney John Huber, issued a statement outlining the indictment and the timeline of the actions it alleges.

She added, "Local and federal law enforcement agencies treat all threats seriously. They expend time and resources responding to and investigating them -- as our agencies did in this case. That said, there isn't any evidence that Mr. Dominguez traveled to carry out his threats against the President."

Sen. Hatch thanks paper for scathing editorial

  Sen. Hatch thanks paper for scathing editorial Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch is proudly claiming the Salt Lake City Tribune's title of "Utahn of the Year" – even if the newspaper did not intend it to be an honorific. The Tribune editorial said it gives the award to the Utah resident who has had the most influence for "for good or for ill." Decrying Hatch's "utter lack of integrity that rises from his unquenchable thirst for power," the editorial blasted the state's senior senator for supporting efforts to shrink national monuments in his state as well as his work on the major tax cut bill that President Trump signed last week.

Dominguez made the threat on Trump's life on December 4, 2017, the US attorney's office said. Trump visited Utah that day to announce his decision to shrink a pair of national monuments.

The Justice Department statement alleges that later in December, Dominguez used an internet tip line to send more threats, including the threat to hurt people at a movie complex with firearms or explosives and then to harm police officers responding to the scene.

After a threat on New Year's Eve, the statement said, Dominguez "was observed in the area of the theater" and police officers then executed a vehicle stop and he was taken into custody.

The US Secret Service did not respond to a request for comment Wednesday evening.
