Pennsylvania Man Charged with Threatening President Biden in Online Video

A Pennsylvania man finds himself in serious legal trouble after allegedly making threats against President Joe Biden and his Cabinet in a video shared online.

Jordan Gee, a 37-year-old resident of Nanticoke, Pennsylvania, has been indicted by a federal grand jury on three felony counts of threatening the president and one count of making interstate threats, according to the Justice Department.

The indictment alleges that Gee posted several videos online following President Biden’s visit to Scranton, Pennsylvania, in April. In these videos, Gee is accused of saying, “Joe Biden: I’m going to kill you and your whole Cabinet,” and “If you come to my city in Scranton, Pennsylvania, I’m cutting your f**king head off in front of everybody, I promise.”

If convicted, Gee could face a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. His arraignment is scheduled for May 29 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.

The issue of threats against elected officials has become increasingly alarming as the 2024 general election approaches. The US Capitol Police reported earlier this year that they investigated over 8,000 threats against members of Congress in 2023, marking a significant increase from the previous year.
