A California man charged with possessing five pipe bombs talked about targeting Democrats, along with the social media giants Twitter and Facebook, as part of a discussion about going “to war” to ensure former President Donald Trump remained in the White House reported first by CNBC.
“I want to blow up a democratic building so bad,” the man, Ian Benjamin Rogers of Napa County, wrote in a text message detailed in a criminal complaint filed in federal court in California, which described a large array of firearms, ammo, bomb-making equipment and warfare manuals found in his possession. Police is investigating others associated with him.
“The democrats need to pay,” wrote Rogers, the owner of British Auto Repair of the Napa Valley.
In another text message, Rogers said he was “thinking sac office first target,” which an FBI agent said is suspected of being the Sacramento office of Gov. Gavin Newsom of California.
In all, authorities seized 49 firearms from his home and business, including about two dozen ammunition boxes containing thousands of rounds of ammunition, the complaint said.
