During a plea hearing, Phelps confessed that in February, she emailed her husband, who was in jail, a 30-second video of herself threatening to murder Harris.

The Justice Department announced that a Miami nurse has pled guilty to threatening to assassinate Vice President Kamala Harris.

Kamala Harris Assassination Plot Foiled: Niviane Petit Phelps, 39, pled guilty to a six-count indictment on Friday, which included threats against Vice President Kamala Harris. On November 19, Phelps is set to be sentenced. She may be sentenced to up to five years in federal prison.

During a plea hearing in district court in Florida, Phelps confessed that in February, she emailed her husband, who was in jail, a 30-second video of herself threatening to murder Harris.

The tapes, according to prosecutors, show Phelps making threats and yelling profanities. According to the Justice Department, she said she had taken $53,000 to carry out the "hit" on Harris within 50 days.

Following the recordings, Phelps shared a photo of herself at a shooting range, carrying a handgun and a target sheet. Prosecutors say Phelps applied for a concealed weapon permit two days later.

According to the Justice Department, Phelps also acknowledged telling law enforcement authorities handling this case that she had no idea what would have occurred if they hadn't gone to her residence.

Scott B. Saul, Phelps' attorney, said in a statement on Tuesday that his client "is adamant that she was just venting as she was going through a tumultuous time in her life and never had an intent to carry out her threats."

He added that "it has been important for Ms. Phelps to demonstrate her acceptance of responsibility as she begins to atone for her aberrant actions" but that she "plans on demonstrating significant mitigating circumstances" in an attempt to get an "equitable" sentence from the judge handling her case.
