* I told subscribers about this earlier today…
An FBI intelligence bulletin specifically cited the pro-Trump QAnon and Pizzagate conspiracy theory groups in a memo warning such groups pose a domestic terrorist threat.
The document, issued by the FBI’s Phoenix field office on May 30 and published by Yahoo News on Thursday, warns that “conspiracy theory-driven domestic extremists” pose a growing threat. […]
The FBI also cited an unnamed California man arrested with bomb-making materials in his vehicle in 2018. The man planned to “blow up a satanic temple monument” in the state capitol rotunda in Springfield, Illinois, in order to “make Americans aware of Pizzagate and the New World Order, who were dismantling society.”
Click here to read that FBI report. The endnotes explain that the unidentified man was arrested by the Seaside, California police department. Click here for background on that Satanic Temple-Chicago monument in the Rotunda last December. The “New World Order” is, among other things, part of that bizarre QAnon conspiracy.
* I also followed up with the Secretary of State’s office, as did Doug Finke. From his story…
Illinois officials said Tuesday they were aware of a 2018 threat to set off a bomb in the state Capitol rotunda directed at a satanic display there last Christmas season.
Dave Druker, spokesman for Secretary of State Jesse White, whose office provides security at the Capitol, said federal authorities notified the office of the threat.
“We tightened up security around the building,” Druker said.
Nothing happened in Springfield as a result of the threat. However, a man in California was arrested in connection with the incident.
