Man sentenced to more than two years in prison for threats against Nancy Pelosi

 A man who pleaded guilty to threatening to shoot House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a day after the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol was sentenced Tuesday to more than two years in prison.
Cleveland Grover Meredith, Jr., 53, was sentenced to 28 months in prison after pleading guilty on Sept. 10 to interstate communication of threats. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson also ordered Meredith to serve three years of supervised release after being released from prison.

Meredith arrived in Washington, D.C., from Colorado the evening of Jan. 6 after the riots had ended, according to the U.S. Justice Department. He planned to arrive on Jan. 5 to attend various rallies but was delayed, court documents state. While in his hotel in Washington, D.C., he sent a text to a relative that included a threat directed at Pelosi.

Meredith, of Hayesville, N.C., said in the text he was thinking of heading over to Pelosi’s speech and “and putting a bullet in her noggin on live TV,” according to court documents.
