A Utah man was shot dead by FBI agents after suspected threats against President Biden, just hours before Biden’s visit to Utah.
Craig Deleeuw Robertson, hailing from Provo, Utah, was fatally shot by the FBI on Wednesday while they were executing a warrant.
This incident occurred mere hours prior to President Joe Biden’s anticipated arrival in the state known as the Beehive state.
He’s Been on Their Radar
Official sources have confirmed that Robertson had been a person of interest due to alleged threats directed towards President Biden.
He Was Hinting at Targeting the President
As per an official statement from the FBI, the occurrence transpired at 6:15 a.m., a few miles south of Salt Lake City.
Just two days prior to this operation, Robertson had taken to social media, hinting at his intentions to target President Biden during his visit to Utah.
He Made Mention of His Plan Online
In his posts, he made mention of his plan to assemble a “ghillie suit,” a type of camouflage attire, and to ready his “m24 sniper rifle” for action.
He Was in Possession of a Sniper Rifle
Through an examination of court records, investigators revealed that Robertson possessed a long-range sniper rifle and other weaponry.
He had made previous allusions to a potential “presidential assassination.”
Court Documents Reveal His Comments
Court documents revealed Robertson’s alarming rhetoric, which targeted other officials including Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, and New York Attorney General Letitia James.
