BREAKING: FBI Foils Suspected Terror Plot On White House

Federal law enforcement officials announced on Wednesday that authorities foiled a terror plot against the White House and other government buildings in Washington, D.C.

“(The alleged terrorist), of Cumming, was arrested in Gwinnett County and appeared briefly in court in downtown Atlanta in the case brought the FBI,” The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

The criminal complaint stated that a “community member” reached out to law enforcement to warn them that “(the alleged terrorist) had become radicalized.”

U.S. Attorney B.J. Pak said that federal authorities, including the Atlanta Joint Terrorism Task Force, had been investigating (the alleged terrorist), 21, for a year after receiving the tip.

“(The alleged terrorist) is charged as the result of a year-long investigation by FBI Atlanta’s Joint Terrorism Task Force,” said Chris Hacker, Special Agent in Charge of FBI Atlanta. “We want to thank the Forsyth County Sheriff Office and Gwinnett County Police Department for assisting us with his arrest. The investigation is continuing, but at this stage it is believed (the alleged terrorist) was acting on his own.”

The AJC notes that “(The alleged terrorist) allegedly said he planned to travel to ‘hijra,’ a term said to refer to Islamic State territory.”

ABC News reported that (the alleged terrorist) allegedly showed an undercover operative in December “a hand-drawn diagram of the White House and asked for help with obtaining weapons and explosives for the attack.”

The FBI arrested (the alleged terrorist) shortly after he traded his car for weapons and explosives that the FBI gave him.

WXIA-TV reported: (the alleged terrorist) has been charged with violating Title 18USC 844(f)(1), an ‘attempt to damage by means of an explosive any building owned, possessed, or leased by the United States or any department or agency thereof, or any institution or organization receiving federal financial assistance.'”

Reporter Alyssa Hyman took photos of federal authorities executing a search warrant at what appeared to be (the alleged terrorist’s) home:

    I think that once you leave the main office in Washington the FBI still has many good men but the hierarchy in the Capitol didn’t do them any favors!

    Someone needs to check those Muslims who were newly elected to the House, otherwise we may be seeing more and more of this!! I cannot believe so many Americans have forgotten 9/11! We should never forget that day ever!!

      Becky, that’s absolutely true! And meanwhile, Democrats are allowing them to cross the Southern border by the hundreds, mixed in with “immigrants”. It’s only a matter of time before another 911 happens, or worse!

    The mussies are hell-bent to do harm by any means possible, including running (and being elected!!!) for national office. It is strange that they want to go back to a 14th century lifestyle and attitude after what they see in the free world. It’s time we forgot all about the “politically correct” bulls**t and throw them out now that they’ve made threats, promises and goals of taking down our society as we know it. If they would only target our snowflake roll-over politicians and sympathizers first!

    Any Muslims here in this country really should LEAVE. We do NOT want you here. How they ever got voted into office is just mind boggling. BUT…. I will trace that back to the former Muslim Prezzie Obama that we had. Someone is STILL coaching these Muslims. And, President Trump has been conned into believing that ISIS is gone. It seems to me that President Trump can’t trust those around him. Really sad and shameful. I remember years ago in Las Vegas, NV, stepping into an elevator with my father and husband. Two Muslim men were in there and believe me, the way that they checked me out because I had slacks on and a blouse, they didn’t approve. TS. But, it put us ALL on alert and we waited..We really thought the men were going to jump me. My father is a former Military Vet. So, he knew what was up. It was quite tense in the elevator and I was half tempted to get out, but stood my ground. This was my right to be in that elevator. My right to wear slacks and a blouse, my right to NOT have my head or even face covered. This IS the United States of America and we will NOT be DENOMINATED, nor CONTROLLED or anything by any f**king Muslims! Newsflash! You’re NOT welcome here in the USA. Our Gun Rights will never ever be taken away. Nor will our Freedom of Speech. You are being watched and closely. President Trump is NOT a fool. but he is being lied to and conned by someone that is trying to cause harm to him and to this country.
