Rochester area man threatened to kill Schumer, Schiff over voicemail

A Rochester area man was charged with threatening to kill two representatives – one of which was New York Senator Chuck Schumer.

Salvatore Lippa II, a Greece resident, is accused of leaving a threatening voicemail with Congressman Adam Schiff at his Washington office.

That voicemail included a death threat over the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump.

A similar message from Lippa was received by Sen. Schumer’s office.

Lippa admitted to police that he made the threatening calls because of the impeachment proceedings.
