Former 49ers Player Appears to Threaten Rep. Eric Swalwell on Social Media

A Bay Area congressman said he received a social media threat and it appears to come from a former member of the 49ers.

Rep. Eric Swalwell posted a screenshot of a direct message on Twitter from an account associated with former San Francisco 49ers fullback Bruce Miller. The message read “would you rather Guantanamo or just execution.” It also included an expletive and the word “traitor.”

Swalwell said Wednesday his family and staff are deeply disturbed and he reported the threat to Capitol Police.

Miller appeared to post a series of tweets sent from his Twitter account Thursday. He appeared to fess up to sending the private message. But he added that his message was in no way a threat and instead called it a “harmless game of would you rather.”

Miller said that Guantanamo or execution is the punishment “for the treason you’ve so aggressively participated in trying to frame the sitting president.”
