Utah Man Killed In FBI Raid After Making ‘Credible’ Threats To Assassinate President Biden


During an early Wednesday morning FBI operation, a man from Utah was fatally shot, according to ABC News. The raid was conducted in relation to an ongoing investigation into alleged threats directed at President Joe Biden and other individuals, the report said.

The deceased suspect is identified as Craig Deleeuw Robertson.

The investigation was initiated in April, and the U.S. Secret Service was informed of it by the FBI in June. Alongside threatening online posts, Robertson indicated online that he was preparing to take physical action against the President and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. The authorities deemed these threats to be “credible,” the official stated.

On August 7 Robertson purportedly wrote on social media; ‘I hear Biden is coming to Utah. Digging out my hold Ghillie suit and cleaning the dust off the M24 sniper rifle.’

Below are some of the threats published by the Daily Mail.

According to the FBI in Salt Lake City, the shooting transpired at approximately 6:15 am local time. The incident occurred as special agents were attempting to execute the arrest and search warrants at a home located in Provo.

The agency wrote in a statement, “The FBI takes all shooting incidents involving our agents or task force members seriously. In accordance with FBI policy, the shooting incident is under review by the FBI’s Inspection Division. As this is an ongoing matter, we have no further details to provide.”
