New York man sentenced to more than two years in prison for posting threats against Warnock and Congress

A New York man was sentenced Thursday to 33 months in prison for posting online violent threats against Congress and a then-newly elected Democratic senator ahead of and during the January 6 Capitol insurrection, according to the Brooklyn US attorney’s office.
Eduard Florea posted several violent comments from his Parler account, under the name “LoneWolfWar,” on January 5 and 6, according to previous court filings. Some of those comments, according to the filings, were aimed at Raphael Warnock, a Georgia Democrat whose win on January 5 helped the party secure control of the Senate.
“With today’s sentence, the defendant faces serious consequences for threatening the life of United States Senator Raphael Warnock as part of his effort to foment violence at the Capital on January 6, 2021 in connection with attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election,” United States Attorney Breon Peace said in a statement.
