FRIGHTENING text messages from the armed Capitol rioter who said he would shoot Nancy Pelosi revealed he also wanted to "burn DC to the ground."
Cleveland Grover Meredith was arrested last week after Donald Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building.
He let FBI agents search his phone, truck, trailer, and the hotel room he was staying at. They found multiple guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition.
Federal court documents filed Wednesday revealed that the rioter specifically threatened Pelosi and DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, and that he wrote in text messages that he wanted to "burn DC to the FKG ground."
Meredith also wrote, "I predict that within the next 12 days, many in our country will die."
"We're gonna surround DC and slowly constrict."
Meredith also included messages to federal agents within his texts, according to the New York Post.
He wrote messages like: "I hope you're reading this Mr. FBI agent FK U," and "You get that one Mr. Marxist FBI Agent? Go FK yourself."
The US Attorney's office is requesting that Meredith not be released on bail due to the nature of the text messages found on his phone.
He also reportedly texted about "war time," and how he was, "ready to remove several craniums from shoulders."
"I'm gonna collect a s**t ton of Traitors heads," he wrote. "Hauling a*s, 3.5 hours from target practice … It ain't just me, someone has to take the TRASH out, FK THESE MTHFKERS."
Meredith is one of several pro-Trump rioters to be arrested in the week following the Capitol attacks.
Josiah Colt, who was pictured dangling from a doorway to the Senate floor, and Robert Keith Packer, who was pictured in the Capitol wearing a "Camp Auschwitz" shirt, were the latest to be booked.
Authorities have also arrested the son of a Brooklyn Supreme Court judge, Aaron Mostofsky, "Qanon Shamon" Jake Angeli, who was pictured in the Capitol wearing fur and horns, and Adam Johnson, who was pictured grinning while carrying Pelosi's lectern.
