It is unclear if a fellow MAGAt, ‘Truth’ Social’s (mis)management, or some good samaritan who just happened to lurk on or monitor the shithole tipped off the FBI about Craig Deleeuw Robertson’s online threats but, the tip did, indeed, come from ‘Truth’ Social. On Wednesday, FBI agents shot and killed the MAGAt as they attempted to arrest him for threatening to kill President Joe Biden.
- In March, Truth Social notified the FBI after Craig Deleeuw Robertson made threats to kill Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg Jr., according to a senior law enforcement official who spoke to NBC News.
- Bragg is prosecuting Trump for allegedly falsifying business records related to a 2016 hush money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels.
In a social media post on Sunday, Robertson wrote, “I heard Biden is coming to Utah.” He added that he was dusting off his “M24 Sniper Rifle.”
On March 19, an FBI agent received a notification from the FBI National Threat Operations Center regarding a threat to kill Bragg. The threat came from an account by user @winston4eagles but ‘Truth’ Social was not named in the complaint. A few days later, agents paid him a visit as the ‘good Christian/Brother in Christ’ headed to church.
When the agents followed him back to his home and asked him about the comment on Truth Social, Robertson told them, “I said it was a dream … We’re done here! Don’t return without a warrant,” according to the complaint.
During a subsequent investigation, the FBI learned that Robertson, who owned numerous firearms, had made “multiple threats” toward government officials, among them Vice President Kamala Harris, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland and New York Attorney General Letitia James. The New York attorney general is suing Trump and his real estate company for alleged widespread fraud.
His death is under investigation by the FBI’s Inspection Division.
