Phelps, who is Black, was arrested in April after a complaint was filed against her. She claimed she made the threats because she did not believe Harris. who has an Indian mother and Jamaican father, is actually Black. She also claimed that Harris did not swear on the Bible––instead, placing her hand on her purse––during her swearing-in, a claim that has been debunked.

According to The Washington Post, Phelps “pleaded guilty to six counts of making threats against the vice president  — each representing one of the 30-second videos in which she said she would assassinate Harris.”

Her sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 19.

Phelps’s attorney, Scott Saul, told the Miami Herald that Phelps did not actually intend to follow through on her threats to assassinate the vice president.

“[She] was just venting as she was going through a tumultuous time in her life,” he said, adding that “it has been important for Ms. Phelps to demonstrate her acceptance of responsibility as she begins to atone for her aberrant actions.”
