He also allegedly texted a message about running over Pelosi, using purple devil emojis and a number of slurs for women in his texts.

On Wednesday, hundreds of Trump fanatics stormed Capitol Hill in a bid to stop lawmakers certifying Joe Biden’s Electoral College votes to confirm him as President-elect.

Meredith also said he was heading to Washington with “a s**t ton of … armor piercing ammo,” according to CNN.

He has been charged by the Feds with writing threats and possessing an unregistered firearm and ammunition and will be held at least until a court hearing next week

Meredith let the FBI search his room at a Holiday Inn in southwest Washington as well as his phone, truck and its trailer.

Agents found three guns – a Glock 19, a 9mm pistol and an assault rifle – inside the trailer and “approximately hundreds of rounds of ammunition”.

The complaint said Meredith knew the city’s gun laws meant he was not supposed to have firearms so he put them in the trailer.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Meredith had erected a billboard in 2018 in Acworth, Ga., that read, “#QANON” along with the name of his business, Car Nutz Car Wash.

Meredith is one of 13 people who have been charged with federal crimes.

Others include Alabama man, Lonnie Coffman, whose allegedly pickup contained 11 homemade napalm bombs.

Richard Barnett, of Arkansas, who was photographed sitting at a desk in Pelosi's office, is also among them.

Also arrested was horned heavily-tattooed QAnon "shaman" seen at the helm of the MAGA riots.

Anthony Chansley, also known as Jake Angeli, was pictured wearing a fur head dress with horns as he occupied the Senate.

He was arrested along with stay-at-home dad Adam Johnson, 36, who was seen grinning as he walked away with Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s podium.

The arrests come as Pelosi herself slammed Donald Trump as "deranged and unhinged" as she blasted Capitol rioters for choosing "whiteness" over democracy.

The House Speaker labelled the president "dangerous" in an interview and said Trump should be "prosecuted" following the shocking Capitol riots that left five dead on Wednesday.
