A Louisiana man pleaded guilty to making a threatening call to a D.C. pizzeria, federal authorities revealed in court documents this week. “I’m coming there to finish what the other guy didn’t. I’m coming there to save the kids and then I’m going to shoot you and everyone in the place,” the caller, identified as Yusif Lee Jones, said in a call to Besta Pizza, days after Edgar Welch was arrested for allegedly opening fire at Comet Ping Pong while investigating a conspiracy theory known as “Pizzagate.” The fake-news story alleged that Hillary Clinton’s closest allies ran a child-sex ring out of the popular D.C. pizza restaurant. Jones reportedly pleaded guilty to one count of interstate threatening communications and will be sentenced in April. He faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
