Nancy Pelosi Death Threats: Fox News Blamed, Incitement of Gregory Lee Giusti, Used Magic Jack For Threats
A California man, Gregory Giusti arrested for making death threats against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Dem-California) could face up to 2 years in prison and be slapped with a $250 thousand fine if found guilty a court hearing heard on Thursday.
Gregory Giusti reportedly called Speaker Pelosi's office and home, using the Magic Jack computer based internet phone, which belonged to a friend, at least 48 times, according to Politico.
Pelosi was so offended with the language used on the message, she declined to recount it to agents in an interview.
Giusti, 48, admitted to officers that he made the calls when the officers played the recording for him at his San Francisco home, according to the criminal complaint released Thursday.
Gregory Gisuti's death, threats and threatening phone calls were instigated by Fox News according to Giusti's mother, Eleanor Giusti. The 83 year said her son has a history of mental illness and can be easily influenced and apparently he was angry about the Democrats Health Care Plan.
Greg frequently gets in with a group of people that have really radical ideas and that are not consistent with myself or the rest of the family, which gets him into problems," Eleanor Giusti said. "I say Fox News, or all of those that are really radical, and he, that's where he comes from."
This arrest is now the third arrest involving death threats against members of congres, threats that are primarily based on oppostion to the Obama Health Care Plan.
Gregory Giusti makes another court appearance on Monday.
