SCRANTON – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Jordan Gee, age 37, of Nanticoke, Pennsylvania, was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of threats against the President and interstate communications with a threat.

According to United States Attorney Gerard M. Karam, the indictment alleges that Gee posted several videos on the Internet shortly before President Joseph Biden’s visit to Scranton, Pennsylvania, for a campaign event on April 16, 2024. In those videos, Gee made several threats to the President and others, including, “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.”

This matter is being investigated by the United States Secret Service. Assistant United States Attorney Kyle A. Moreno is prosecuting the case.

The maximum penalty under federal law for these offenses is twenty years of imprisonment, a term of supervised release following imprisonment, and a fine. A sentence following a finding of guilt is imposed by the Judge after consideration of the applicable federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.

Indictments are only allegations. All persons charged are presumed to be innocent unless and until found guilty in court.
