(PresidentialInsider.com)- A woman who said that she hoped to murder far-left House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after she left the United States Capitol Building during the January 6 riot has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor.
59-year-old Dawn Bancroft of Philadelphia told a Washington federal court that she did make the threat.
“I would like to accept my responsibility for what I did, for my part in January 6,” she said to the court.
A video shows Bancroft saying on January 7 that she was “looking for Nancy to shoot her in the friggin’ brain, but we didn’t find her.”
It’s important to note that only days after claims were made that January 6 rioters were planning on finding, capturing, and killing politicians, the FBI walked back those claims and said that there was no evidence to support them.
Bancroft was only charged with a misdemeanor and not a felony because she made the claim as she was leaving the building and there was no evidence she actually intended to act on it.
This is very much a case of somebody saying something stupid rather than actively attempting to do something terrible. Bancroft told the judge that her comment was “dumb” and “stupid” and that she “did not mean it.”
Bancroft’s attorney also told the judge that she did not post the video online, and that it was only shared with her children and friends – one of whom shared the clip with the FBI.
There’s no doubt that what Bancroft said was wrong, but these cases repeatedly prove that the January 6 riot wasn’t the terrorist attack the Democrats claim it was.
Here we have people making dumb comments, and yet throughout 2020, the Democrats incited violent riots, arson, and destruction in the name of “racial justice” and nobody seems to want to talk about it.
