Rioter Who Threatened To Murder Pelosi Pleads Guilty

Washington DC’s CBS News affiliate reports:

The Georgia man who threatened to “put a bullet” in D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pleaded guilty Friday to a felony count of transmitting a threat in interstate commerce. Cleveland Grover Meredith, Jr., appeared before U.S. District Judge Amy B. Jackson.

Meredith was arrested a day after the Capitol riot when he texted a relative, “I may wander over to the Mayor’s office and put a 5.56 in her skull, FKG c***.” Meredith then sent a similar text about Pelosi, saying he was, “Thinking about heading over to Pelosi C****’s speech and putting a bullet in her noggin on Live TV.”

The relative who received the text contacted Meredith’s mother, who then alerted the FBI because she was concerned for his safety and the safety of others. Meredith was taken into custody a short time later with two firearms, several high-capacity magazines and more than 2,500 rounds of ammunition.
