An alleged white supremacist with ties to the Pittsburgh Synagogue shooting suspect has been arrested on gun charges by the FBI.

The suspect, Jeffrey Clark, was charged in Washington, D.C. with illegal possession of high-capacity firearms magazines and ‘unlawful guns.’

NBC 4 broke the story: An FBI affidavit reviewed by the News4 I-Team said Clark was connected with suspected Tree of Life synagogue shooter Robert Bowers on Gab, a social networking site. According to the affidavit, Clark openly discussed killing people of the Jewish faith, as well as African Americans. The affidavit said Clark spoke about Bowers, claiming the synagogue shootings were “justified,” because a same-sex “Jewish couple was having an adopted baby circumcised that week.”

According to the FBI affidavit, witnesses said Clark attended the 2017 “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville and was photographed standing next to James Alex Fields, a white nationalist who prosecutors say drove a car into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing one.
