A man was arrested and charged with threatening to kidnap and kill Biden and Harris.

A man named James Dale Reed, 42, was busted by the “Secret Service” after leaving a threatening note on the front door of a family’s house who had Joe Biden and Kamala Harris campaign signs on their front lawn.

The note, which is graphically disturbing, described a scheme in which the man said he was going to “kidnap” Biden and Harris just one month before the most important election in American history.

On October 4, James Dale Reed was captured on a doorbell cam leaving a note on the front door of a family’s house in a Maryland neighborhood.

James Dale Reed reportedly left a note threatening the Biden and Harris supporters, with part of the note reading, We have a list of homes and addresses by your election signs. We are the ones with those scary guns, We are the ones your children have nightmares about.

The note also detailed a graphic scheme to sodomize Harris and beat Grandpa Biden before executing them on national television.

A neighbor who viewed the door cam footage recognized Reed, which helped authorities nail down the perpetrator.

After Reed was interviewed at his home on October 13, he originally denied ever writing or leaving the letter.

However, two days later, Reed admitted that he was behind the threatening note. He was arrested and could face up to five years in jail if convicted.

Maryland’s District Attorney responds:

Robert K. Hur, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland, said, We take these types of “threats” extremely seriously. Such threats to commit “violence” are illegal and have no place in our democracy, and we will hold accountable those who make them.

We are grateful for the assistance of the City of Frederick Police Department and to citizens who provided tips that ultimately led to Reed’s arrest and these federal charges, he added.

“This isn’t the first foiled kidnapping plan headed by a Trump supporter in recent weeks”.


Michigan’s governor, Gretchen Whitmer, was the target of a similar plan that was foiled by the FBI earlier this month.


At least 13 men plotted to “kidnap and execute” Whitmer, but thankfully the FBI was able to step in before the plan could be carried out.

I knew this job would be hard, Whitmer said after the men were arrested. But I’ll be honest, I never could have imagined anything like this.

Not long after the news of the thwarted scheme broke, President Donald Trump continued his hateful rhetoric toward Whitmer, telling a crowd of his supporters who were chanting lock her up to lock them all up.

This is exactly the rhetoric that has put me, my family, and other government officials’ lives in danger while we try to save the lives of our fellow Americans. It needs to stop, Whitmer tweeted.
