Former camera operator for ABC, NBC, and CNN arrested for threatening to kill Matt Gaetz

A longtime camera operator for ABC, CNN, NBC, and other outlets was arrested last week for threatening to kill Rep Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and his family days after the January 6 riot at the US Capitol. Meanwhile, another man who recently threatened Rep. Gaetz is still on the streets after the Department of Justice blocked the US Capitol Police’s recommendation for arrest.

According to court documents, law enforcement arrested Eugene “Gene” Huelsman, 58, in the Los Angeles on an indictment returned in May by a federal grand jury in Pensacola, Florida.

According to Fox News, Huelsman has worked for decades as a camera operator for various films and television networks including ABC and CNN. He even received five Emmy nominations for his work on NBC’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien.

The indictment does not mention Gaetz by name, but Federal prosecutors said that on January 9, Huelsman called the office a person named “MG” in the indictment and made threat.

According to the indictment, Huelsman allegedly said, “Tell (MG) to watch his back, tell him to watch his children… I’m coming for him… I’m gonna f—ing kill him… I’m gonna put a bullet in you and I’m gonna put a bullet in one of your f—ing kids too.”

Gaetz told Politico that he was the intended target.

Last Wednesday, Gaetz, on the House floor, described threats made against him by another individual who threatened to kill him over Twitter and had traveled to Washington DC in order to do so.

“I think someone may be trying to kill me and if they are successful I would like my constituents and my family to know who stopped their arrest.”

Gaetz claimed that the Department of Justice declined to arrest the individual even though the Capitol Police allegedly recommended doing so.
