David Staudohar Age
David Staudohar, 53, is charged with calling law enforcement agencies in California, Texas and Kentucky describing his plans to kill the congresswoman “for treason against the United States,” according to an affidavit given in the US District Court in Cleveland was filed by Vince Veloz, the US Capitol Police investigator.
Staudohar appeared before Magistrate Judge William Baughman, who ordered that Staudohar be detained without commitment pending an arrest hearing on July 13.
Authorities accused Staudohar of telephoning three hours apart on November 13, less than a week after Joseph Biden was declared the winner of the presidential election. The affidavit accompanying the calls blacked out the member’s name, but it was clear from the document and interviews that Pelosi was the victim of the calls.
He first called the police in St. Helena, California, the file says. Pelosi owns a house and a vineyard there.
“I want you to know that I will land at Stockton, California, airport,” said Staudohar on the affidavit. In the call, Staudohar added, “I’m coming up there to take revenge.”
Hours later he called the police in Louisville, Kentucky. He said he ordered “a hit” in Washington, the affidavit said. At 10:15 p.m., Staudohar was charged with calling officials in Dallas, Texas.
“I am a self-made man and have ordered a hit,” he told the official, according to the affidavit. “I shot her two bullets in the head.”
The authorities followed up the calls to Staudohar. After that, an FBI agent spoke to Staudohar over the phone and in person. He admitted threatening phone calls were fake, the file says.
On June 24, he called the St. Helena police again and said he had a pair of brass knuckles, as the affidavit shows. He said he feared the Democratic Party will overthrow the country. “When I’m done with her, her face will look like a ten-pound bag of hamburger,” he said on the affidavit. “I am a veteran and a patriot.”
Staudohar told Baughman that he is retired and living on a $ 691 monthly pension and grocery stamps. He complained that federal authorities used excessive force when he was arrested at his home. He said the arrest resulted in bruised ribs.
A spokesman for Pelosi’s office did not immediately respond to an email message asking for comment. Messages for Khalida Sims, a federal defender representing Staudohar, have not been returned.
