New York man pleads guilty to threatening MTG's life

"Multiple people who want to kill me have been arrested, but the DC media doesn’t report it. It’s two-tiered justice and two-tiered coverage."

Roberto Wakerell-Cruz Montreal QC
A New York man pleaded guilty on Wednesday to making interstate threats to Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, who called the US justice system "two-tiered" after the man was reportedly permitted to go home while awaiting sentencing.

A post from Greene reads, "A man pleads guilty for planning to kill me or paying someone to do it. Now he’s at home, able to do it while awaiting sentencing."

"But a guy who sat at Pelosi’s desk faces 20 years & people who walked into the Capitol on J6 are rotting in jail pretrial."

A release from the Department of Justice states that Joseph F. Morelli, 51, of Endicott, New York pled guilty to "making threatening phone calls from his home in Endicott, New York to the voicemail in the office of a member of Congress in Washington, D.C.," that member of congress being Greene.

Morelli admitted that on March 3, 2022, he placed a telephone call to the Washington, DC office that said in part, "I'm gonna have to take your life into my own hands… I'm gonna hurt you. Physically, I’m gonna harm you."

A second voicemail message on March 3, 2022, said in part, "I'm gonna have to show you, to your face, right up front, what violence truly is, and I don't think you're gonna like it.… I can pay someone 500 bucks to take a baseball bat and crack your skull. …You are going to get f**king physically hurt."

A third voicemail message left on March 3, 2022, said, "you're gonna cause people to get hurt, so I'm gonna have to hurt you physically. … I'm gonna make sure that, even if they lock me up, someone's gonna get you ‘cause I'll pay them to."

Greene's statement continues, "He faces up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 and a term of supervised release of up to 3 years. 

"The press keeps asking me about threats against Rep. Omar, but none of them knew about this guilty plea for a threat against my life. Multiple people who want to kill me have been arrested, but the DC media doesn’t report it. It’s two-tiered justice and two-tiered coverage."
