Man Charged After Threat To Harm Pelosi

MAN CHARGED AFTER ALLEGEDLY TEXTING HE WANTED TO SHOOT PELOSI

(CNN) – A man authorities claim texted acquaintances to say he wanted to harm house speaker Nancy Pelosi is due in court next week.

Cleveland Grover Meredith Jr. went to Washington this week, with hundreds of rounds of ammunition and an assault rifle.

That’s according to court documents.

He’s charged with writing the threats, and with possession of an unregistered firearm and ammo.

The documents say Meredith’s texts talked about shooting Pelosi in the head or running over her.

He’s one of at least three federal defendants connected to Wednesday’s riot allegedly found carrying significant weaponry.
