Court frees Texas man “Isaac Nformangum” on bond despite allegedly threatening to kill Ted Cruz, and other Republicans

Threats against Sen. Ted Cruz were made by a man in the Houston area of Texas, but he is still at large after a court released him on a personal recognizance bond.

According to a transcript of the call released by the local District Attorney’s office, Isaac Nformangum, 22, allegedly called Cruz’s office and threatened to kill the senator “be it by a bullet to the face or by the smashing of a brick in your skull,” Fox News reported. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

After being released on bond on July 3, Nformangum, who claimed that Republicans had taken away his ability to vote, was scheduled to appear in court on Friday. It is unknown where he is right now.

According to the report, Nformangum said in the phone call, “Hello and good afternoon Senator Rafael. This is one of the many Afro-American constituents of whom you are representative of here in Texas, as you currently serve from the Senate.”

“I have just read the, uh, Texas Republican Party’s platform for this current 2022 year, uh, wherein it is apparent that your many colleagues intend … intend to have the voting right acts repealed and not reauthorized?”

“Every last one of your Republican colleagues to have signed off on that platform is to be found, and is to be found and killed,” Nformangum allegedly threatened.

“It is a civic duty of every American citizen or resident to see to it that every last one of your colleagues is to be killed. Killed. Be it by finding you in a public space or by trailing you to your very, by your very public homes.”

Nformangum was freed on bond on July 3.

The suspect is now a wanted fugitive after failing to appear in court on Friday. Police are looking for Nformangum, but he is still at large.

According to KPRC TV, the call on June 26 came to a close with 30 seconds of silence. The incident was reported by US Capitol Police to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office in Texas the next day, as per court records obtained by the site.
