As for the mugshot, the authorities haven't revealed one. Nonetheless, an individual allegedly shared a picture of the offender from his time in the military with the texts threatening to kill the senator.
Similarly, the offender wanted to buy a handgun, a shotgun, and an AR-15, according to his Facebook post of 18 March. However, he is a convicted felon and doesn't have the right to own firearms.
On Friday afternoon in Seattle, Eric appeared before the U.S. Magistrate Judge S. Kate Vaughan. The court instructed his preliminary hearing to be on 15 April under Magistrate Judge Michelle Peterson.
Besides his recent stint with Senator Cruz, there aren't many details about him online, including his educational qualifications.
