In the video, Phelps said, “Kamala Harris you are going to die. Your days are already numbered. Someone paid me $53,000 just to f— you up.” In the second video, Phelps said, “Kamala Harris put a dime on me. I put a f—–g dime back on her. $53,000, that’s your f——g number. 

On February 14, 2021, Phelps recorded herself making two more videos threatening to kill Harris.  

“Kamala Harris, you gonna f—–g die b—h. Okay? If I see you in the street, I’ma kill yo a–, Kamala Harris.” 

Phelps applied for a concealed weapon permit two days later. 

Phelps, who is Black, told investigators she threatened Harris because she does not believe Harris is Black. Harris’ parents were Indian and Jamaican immigrants who met in California. 

Phelps also told law enforcement that before sending the videos to her husband, she knew someone else could see them and thought to herself, “You know what? Here goes nothing. I don’t care.”
