WASHINGTON, D.C. — A New York Times reporter has revealed a federal investigation document showing that one of people who stormed the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. last Wednesday intended to kill Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi (D-CA-12) by shooting her in the head.
The document accuses Cleveland Meredith from the U.S. State of Georgia of threatening Pelosi’s life, stating that the authorities have seized several weapons from him.
Meredith did not have a license to carry a firearm in Washington, D.C., according to Capitol Police.
According to a statement by the Justice Affairs Office in the U.S. Department of Justice, 13 defendants arrested for their involvement in the recent riot were charged with threatening Pelosi’s life. No more details have been disclosed so far.
