I bet it all seemed like a great idea to her at the time…
A Florida woman is facing charges after allegedly threatening to shoot FBI agents who contacted her last month about her possible involvement in the deadly insurrection at the Capitol. Suzanne Kaye, a Boca Raton, Florida, resident, was charged this week with threatening to injure a person after posting a Jan. 31 video on Facebook, titled “Fuck the FBI!!,” in which she suggested she’d use violence against any FBI agents who tried to come to her house.
The complaint, which does not detail whether Kaye actually stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6, says she has a criminal past, including a January 2010 arrest for domestic battery and a February 2020 arrest for aggravated assault. Both charges have since been dropped.
She denied taking part in the riot, then bragged about it on TikTok…
Suzanne Kaye, 58, made the threats after FBI agents called her, following a tip that she may have participated in the Jan. 6 insurrection in Washington, D.C., according to a criminal complaint filed Monday. Kaye has been charged with interstate communication of a threat.
In the Jan. 28 phone call, Kaye asked agents if they had proof that she was there, then denied having traveled to Washington. She then agreed to talk to the agents at her home in Boca Raton, Florida, the complaint says.
“Hi, all my TikTok patriot friends. Gotta have a drink,” Kaye says in the video. “Just got a call from the FBI and they want to come talk to me about my visit to D.C. on January 6th. I told them you can’t come and talk to me unless I have counsel, and being that I can’t afford counsel, you’ll have to arrest me so I can use my right of counsel.”
She told them to arrest her…
While drinking from a bottle of bourbon, Kaye says she told the FBI to arrest her given that she couldn’t afford legal counsel.
“You think I’m going to let you come fucking talk to me?” she says. “You’re out of your mother fucking mind, bro. That’s not going to happen.”
Kaye goes on to threaten the FBI, citing her constitutional rights as justification.
“I’m a fucking patriot, and I exercise my First Amendment right on my freedom of speech and my Second Amendment right to shoot your fucking ass if you come here,” Kaye says.
The FBI has taken her up on the offer.
