A Utah man was shot and killed during an FBI raid on Wednesday morning, the FBI confirmed to Fwrd Axis News.
The investigation involved the suspect making alleged threats against President Joe Biden, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, and other politicians, according to charging documents.
“The incident began when special agents attempted to serve arrest and search warrants at a residence. The subject is deceased,” the FBI said.
The U.S. Secret Service was notified by the FBI in June about the investigation. The suspect, identified as Craig Deleeuw Robertson, allegedly made a threat on Monday and said: “I hear Biden is coming to Utah. Digging out my old Ghille suit and cleaning the dust off the M24 Sniper rifle.”
The President is scheduled to visit Utah on Thursday to conclude his three-state tour.
Robertson was facing three charges, according to the document: interstate threats, threats against the president, and influencing, impeding, and retaliating against federal law enforcement officers by threat.
Robertson made several social media posts threatening to kill Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, as well as other officials involved in prosecuting former President Donald Trump.
The FBI classified the threat as a “willful true threat to kill or cause injury to kill President Biden.”
Robertson’s threat to Bragg included saying he wanted to “put in a bullet in his head” and calling him a “political hack”, a term often used by Trump.
“I want to stand over Bragg and put a nice hole in his forehead with my 9mm and watch him twitch as a drop of blood oozes from the hole as his life ebbs away to hell,” the document said.
A senior administration official confirmed to Fwrd Axis News that Biden was briefed on the situation Wednesday while he was traveling in New Mexico.
