OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma man has been charged with 10 counts of threatening federal officials, including former President George W. Bush, U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, and and six members of Congress.

Court documents dated Thursday allege that Michael Brandon Houck made the threats in social media posts in November, December, and January. An attorney listed for Houck did not immediately return a phone call on Saturday.

The documents say threats were also made to Sens. James Lankford R-OK, Chuck Schumer D-NY, Lindsey Graham R-SC, Mitt Romney R-UT, Mitch McConnell R-KY, and Rep. Nancy Pelosi D-CA.
