In the US, a woman was arrested who declared her intention to shoot Nancy Pelosi
The US authorities have arrested a woman in connection with the storming of the Capitol by supporters of former President Donald Trump, who declared her intention to shoot the Speaker of the House of Representatives of Congress Nancy Pelosi. This is reported by The Washington Post.
According to her, the arrest was made on Friday. The woman was identified from a video she sent to her children. вЂњWe broke into the Capitol. We went inside, we did our jobвЂќ вЂњ the woman said in the video. вЂњWe were looking for Nancy to shoot her in the fucking head, but we didn't find her,вЂќ the publication quotes from this video.
According to The Washington Post, the woman tried to get rid of the videos she made inside the Capitol and told her children to also delete the pictures she sent them from their phones. In this way, she tried to prevent law enforcement officers from discovering these images with her participation.
Pelosi this week said at a briefing for reporters that the threat to the security of the US Congress may come from the House of Representatives of the legislature itself. Alluding to her colleagues, she pointed to the вЂњenemiesвЂќ inside the chamber. Responding to questions from reporters about who she meant by вЂњ enemies, вЂњPelosi added,вЂќ We have members of Congress who wanted to bring weapons and are threatening to kill other members of Congress.вЂќ
Last week, Republican Congressman Andy Harris (R-Maryland) tried to smuggle a gun into the House chamber. Capitol police have launched an investigation into the matter. Earlier in the house rules were introduced, according to which Congress must now be searched using part of the metal detector before entering the courtroom.
