Abigail Jo Shry, of Alvin, Texas, faces trial for allegedly leaving a threatening and racist voicemail for federal judge Tanya Chutkan, who presides over one of the cases against Donald Trump regarding the Capitol riot. The message contained threats against Chutkan, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, D.C. Democrats, and the LGBTQ+ community. Shry admitted to making the call but claimed she had no intent to carry out the threats. Shry has a history of criminal conduct and threatening calls, indicating a pattern of behavior.

The judge refused bail due to the weight of evidence, Shry's criminal history, lack of stable residence and employment, and a history of substance abuse. Shry's father testified about her alcohol dependency and her tendency to become agitated after watching the news, leading to making threatening calls. Shry faces charges that carry a maximum prison sentence of five years.

Regarding Trump's trial, the judge reinstated a gag order after Trump used social media to criticize the Department of Justice's special counsel and urged his former chief of staff not to cooperate with authorities, potentially impacting the trial. The judge's decision to reimpose the gag order was influenced by Trump's statements about key individuals involved in the case.
