Who is Dawn Bancroft? Wanted To Shoot Nancy Pelosi, Biography, Wiki, Age, Net Worth

Two women were arrested in Pennsylvania on Friday in connection with the storming of the Capitol after federal authorities said one of them boasted in a selfie video about wanting to shoot House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

“We broke into the Capitol. . . . We got inside, we did our part,” Dawn Bancroft said in the video she sent to her children, according to an FBI affidavit filed with the criminal complaint against the women. “We were looking for Nancy to shoot her in the friggin’ brain, but we didn’t find her.”

A woman that was arrested in connection with the Jan. 6 Capitol riots allegedly said she wanted to shoot House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) “in the friggin’ brain.”

Two women in connection with the Capitol attack, Dawn Bancroft and Diana Santos-Smith, were arrested in Pennsylvania on Friday, according to the Department of Justice (DOJ).

According to a criminal complaint, the FBI received a tip about a week after the riot with a video purportedly taken by Bancroft, showing her and Santos-Smith attempting to exit the Capitol.

During the video, Bancroft purportedly said, “We broke into the Capitol…we got inside, we did our part.”

“We were looking for Nancy to shoot her in the friggin’ brain but we didn’t find her,” which the FBI agent believed was a reference to Pelosi.

The FBI stated that when they interviewed Santos-Smith around Inauguration Day, she initially said she attended the Jan. 6 rally, but did not enter the Capitol. She later admitted to being inside the building after being shown the video.

On the day of the riots, a mob of Trump supporters breached the building’s security and broke windows, roamed the hallways and vandalized lawmakers’ offices, including Pelosi’s. One man was photographed in a chair in Pelosi’s office, and another man was seen carrying the speaker’s lectern in the building.

Both women said they were inside the building for no more than one minute, and that they had taken videos from inside the Capitol. Bancroft sent video to her children, according to authorities, and later instructed them to delete it.

The women are charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority; knowingly engaging in disorderly or disruptive conduct in any restricted building or grounds; as well as violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, according to the DOJ.

News of Bancroft’s comment comes as law enforcement steps up security to monitor lawmakers amid heightened threats.

Over 5,000 National Gaurdsmen are expected to remain in D.C. through at least mid-march, and Capitol Police officers will be stationed at several D.C. airports, as well as the Union Station railway stop to monitor lawmakers as they travel.

Over 150 arrests have been made thus far in the riot that led to five deaths, including that of a Capitol Police officer.

The FBI arrested the Pennsylvania women after receiving a tip about the selfie, said the criminal complaint.

When first questioned by investigators, Santos-Smith initially claimed she and Bancroft never entered the Capitol, according to an affidavit by an FBI agent submitted with the complaint. When confronted with the video, Santos-Smith admitted they did enter, but assumed it was allowed because she “heard people saying, ‘They’re letting us in,’” noted the affidavit. Both women, however, said they entered, and later exited, the Capitol by crawling through a window that had been broken by rioters, the affidavit noted.

Bancroft and Santos-Smith could not immediately be reached for comment. The Bucks County Courier Times reported that Bancroft owns a gym in Plumstead.

Concerns about the safety of members of Congress have rarely been more fraught than in the wake of the storming of the Capitol — and heightened tensions among lawmakers. Pelosi said on Thursday that part of the threat is an “enemy” within the House chamber, referring to colleagues who “want to bring guns on the floor and have threatened violence on other members of Congress.”

Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) announced on Friday that she was moving her office for the “safety” of her staff and herself after an ugly confrontation with controversial QAnon conspiracist Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) in a hallway of the Capitol. Greene has “liked” social media posts by others that suggested executing Pelosi, FBI agents and others.
