Re: Nancy Pelosi, Speaker, U.S. House of Representatives
Dear Director Cheatle,
Pursuant to the authority granted to the U.S. Secret Service under 18 U.S.C., Section 3056 (a) (1), Powers, authorities and duties of United States Secret Service and Section (b) (1) regarding the arrest of person(s) who violate Section 871 of 18USC, Threats against the President, I hereby lodge a criminal information against Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives and request that you take action to investigate and prosecute Nancy Pelosi for violation of 18USC, Section 871.
The Speaker, when on January 6th, 2021 threatened to “Punch Out” then President Donald Trump, did so violate 18USC, Section 871 as evidenced by video recorded and made public by the January 6 committee. This conduct, more specifically violated 18 USC, Section 871, (a) “Whoever knowingly and willfully….[makesl any threat to inflict bodily harm against the President…shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both”
The burden to prove intent to commit this crime and her knowledge that the threat was illegal has been met given Nancy Pelosi’s statement “I’m going to Jail”.
