The FBI Releases New Video Of The Person Who Planted Bombs Before The Capitol Riot

According to court papers, Meredith sent a relative a text message saying he wanted to attend an event with Pelosi and put «a bullet in her noggin on Live TV.» The relative contacted Meredith’s mother, who got in touch with the FBI. Soon after, agents located Meredith in a downtown D.C. hotel, and found a handgun, rifle and 2,500 rounds of ammunition in his possession.

Meredith’s sentencing is scheduled for December.

Two Illinois men — Bruce Harrison and Douglas Wangler — pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor count of picketing, parading or demonstrating in a capitol building. They spent about 20 minutes inside the Capitol on Jan. 6, during which Harrison took a video of Wangler pumping his fist in the air.
