January 6 rioter who said she looked for Pelosi 'to shoot her in the friggin' brain' pleads guilty to misdemeanor for illegally protesting
Doylestown gym owner Dawn Bancroft entered the guilty plea in DC District Court and was immediately dressed down by a federal judge, who called the violent rhetoric caught in a video selfie "disturbing."

"That's really troubling. It's horrible. It's outrageous," District Judge Emmet Sullivan said, before turning his attention to federal prosecutors and asking, "Does it not rise to the level of a threat?"

The Justice Department lawyers said they hadn't charged Bancroft with threatening Pelosi, a California Democrat who's the speaker of the House, because Bancroft had uttered the comment while she was exiting the Capitol, potentially making it harder to prove that the threat to Pelosi was serious.

In an attempt to explain her comments about Pelosi, Bancroft told the judge, "I said it in a jovial way. We were joking and laughing on the way back to the train. It was a dumb, stupid comment. I did not mean it."

Later in the hearing, she said, "I understand what I did. It was not right. ... That is something I will teach to my children. I did it. I am guilty. And I'm going to take the consequences for what I did."


The Justice Department agreed as part of the plea deal to drop three other misdemeanor charges that had been filed against Bancroft.
