The message from Miller said, “almost time!!! Would you rather Guantanamo or just execution,” with laughing emojis.
Miller also called the congressman, who is rumored to have had a sexual relationship with a Chinese spy, a “f-cking traitor.”
Swalwell tweeted a screenshot of the message asking who Miller was.

Swalwell told a reporter for NBC Bay Area that he reported Miller to the police.
“My family and staff are deeply disturbed by the threat of execution…apparently by former 49er Bruce Miller. Threats of political violence are unacceptable,” Swalwell told the reporter.
