Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene highlighted how the United States justice system is two-tiered, and she gave examples.
In a statement released on Thursday, the congresswoman said, “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.”
Joseph F. Morelli, 51, of Endicott, New York pled guilty to making threatening phone calls from his home to the voicemail to Greene.
The statement from the Department of Justice reads: “As part of his guilty plea, Morelli admitted to that on March 3, 2022, he placed a telephone call to the Washington, D.C. office of a member of the U.S. House Representatives 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 on March 3, 2022, included, “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 continued: “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,” she concluded.
