Man pleads guilty to threatening to shoot Pelosi

A Colorado man who said he planned to shoot House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in the head during a trip to Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6 pleaded guilty to the charges on Friday.

Cleveland Meredith Jr. pleaded guilty to the count of interstate communication of threats based on a text message he sent on Jan. 7 saying, “Thinking about heading over to Pelosi … speech and putting a bullet in her noggin on Live TV.”

Meredith planned to attend the Jan. 6 Trump rally but arrived late due to car problems, according to the report. He traveled with a rifle, handgun and 2,500 rounds of ammunition.

Agents met with Meredith at his hotel on Jan. 7 where the weapons were found along with the message.

Though he plead guilty, Meredith claimed the text message was “political hyperbole.”

Meredith remains in custody and could serve up to 24 months in prison. His sentencing is scheduled for December.

The case is one of approximately 600 people charged with crimes in connection with the events of Jan. 6. Pelosi continues to pursue an investigation of the events through her select House committee.

I thought one had to commit a crime before being charged and sentenced to prison time. Just saying I’m going to shoot Nancy Pelosi in the head does not justify a crime has been committed. People have said and done much worse to President Trump and nothing at all has been done to them. Explain please.
