Authorities said he posted a rambling message that encouraged people to kill Democrats. He allegedly called them "terrorists."

Police said Perry admitted to owning the account, and said he wanted to warn Americans to beware of the government, which he stated he believes to be “tyrannical,” KJTL reported.

“This defendant’s threats against the Speaker and law enforcement agents are wholly inexcusable, and we look forward to bringing him to justice,” U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox said.

If convicted, Perry faces up to five years in federal prison, the station reported.
