Kansas Man Sentenced for Threatening to Assassinate President Biden

By Trish Svoboda

A man from Kansas was sentenced to 21 months in prison for threatening to murder President Joe Biden. Court documents reveal that Cody McCormick, 28, of Wichita pleaded guilty to one count of making a threat against the president.

Back in April 2023, McCormick sent a Facebook message to a television station in Wichita with details of his intent to kill President Joe Biden. Part of the message read, “I will get a Greyhound bus ticket and go and shoot him.”

In an interview with U.S. Secret Service agents, they asked McCormick if they would need to be concerned about him if President Biden came to Wichita, to which McCormick stated that he would force the President to step down and kidnap him if given the chance. He also expressed his intent to kill President Biden if he doesn’t receive the help he needs.

The U.S. Secret Service and the Wichita Police Department investigated the case.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Matt Treaster prosecuted the case.
