Police are searching for Frank R. James, a man of interest in connection to the Brooklyn Subway terror attack during Tuesday morning’s rush hour commute. At least 29 people were injured in the bloody attack, a few in critical condition but are expected to survive. Investigators believe the gunman, wearing a gas mask and bright construction vest, set off smoke grenades and fired rounds out of a handgun before it jammed.
James, 62, rented a U-haul van which was later found, unoccupied, near a subway station where investigators believe is where the gunman entered the train system. Many have looked into James’ social media where he discusses pro Black nationalist rhetoric.
James created many profanity-filled YouTube videos. The Associated Press reports the videos “are replete with Black nationalist rhetoric, violent language and bigoted comments, some of them directed at other Black people. One, posted April 11, criticizes crime against Black people and says drastic action is needed to change things.”
Several videos mention New York’s subways, and New York Mayor Eric Adams is a recurring theme of the videos, reports the AP. The Mayor’s security has been heightened since the attack.
In a February 20 video, James said New York’s mayor and governor’s plan to address homelessness and safety for its subway system “is doomed for failure.” He also refers to himself as a “victim” of the mayor’s mental health program. A January 25 video criticized Adams’ plans to end gun violence.
Police said the weapon used in the attack, along with extended magazines, a hatchet, detonated and undetonated smoke grenades, a black garbage can, a rolling cart, gasoline and the key to a U-Haul van were found by police.
Chief of Detectives James Essig said the gunman was sitting in the back of the train’s second car when he tossed two smoke grenades on the floor, pulled out a Glock 9 mm semi-automatic handgun and started firing.
One rider and witness Juliana Fonda, said passengers in the smoke-filled car pounded on the door to the adjacent car attempting to escape.

Hunter Biden Files Lawsuit Against Rudy Giuliani Over ‘Privacy Violation’
In a legal development that has garnered significant attention, Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, has filed a lawsuit against Rudy Giuliani, the former lawyer for President Trump. The lawsuit alleges that Giuliani violated Biden’s privacy rights by disseminating content obtained from Biden’s controversial laptop.
This complaint was submitted to the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California and places the primary responsibility for the alleged violation of Biden’s digital privacy squarely on Giuliani. Additionally, the lawsuit names Robert Costello, a former federal prosecutor who had previously represented Giuliani, as a co-defendant.
According to the complaint, Giuliani and Costello are accused of dedicating substantial time and effort to search for, hack into, tamper with, manipulate, copy, disseminate, and scrutinize data they claim to have obtained from Hunter Biden’s alleged laptop computer. However, Biden’s attorneys vehemently argue that the data in question did not originate from a laptop but rather from an external drive. This external drive is reported to contain pictures, videos, emails, and other data that have created legal and political challenges for Hunter Biden since they were first published by the New York Post in 2020.
Giuliani and Costello have openly acknowledged obtaining copies of files from a hard drive device that Hunter Biden allegedly left at a Delaware computer repair shop in 2019. This information was subsequently provided to the New York Post in October 2020, leading to a story that relied on Hunter Biden’s emails to suggest that President Biden was involved in a business deal with a Ukrainian company that had appointed Hunter to its board.
House Republicans initiated an impeachment inquiry into President Biden, alleging that he used his position as vice president to dissuade Ukrainian prosecutors from investigating the company employing his son. These lawmakers also claim that the president had a hand in various business dealings orchestrated by Hunter Biden. President Biden has consistently denied any involvement in his son’s business affairs.
According to reports from Fox News, Hunter Biden’s legal team had previously sent cease-and-desist letters to Giuliani and others who obtained and disseminated the laptop’s contents. The present lawsuit seeks a court order to prevent Giuliani and others from accessing, tampering with, manipulating, or copying Biden’s data. It also demands the return of the alleged “device/hard drive” to Hunter Biden, along with any backup files, cloud files, or copies of the data.
This lawsuit marks the latest chapter in a series of legal actions taken by Hunter Biden and his lawyers to counteract leaks of personal information that thrust his private life into the spotlight of conservative media outlets.
Earlier this month, Hunter Biden sued former President Trump’s aide Garrett Ziegler, accusing him of disseminating explicit content from the device. In March, Biden initiated a countersuit against John Paul Mac Isaac, the owner of the Wilmington, Delaware, computer repair shop, accusing him of unlawfully disseminating personal information and invasion of privacy.
John Paul Mac Isaac initially filed a lawsuit against Hunter Biden, CNN, Politico, and Rep. Adam Schiff in October 2022, alleging defamation. Mac Isaac reported alerting the FBI after Hunter Biden failed to retrieve the laptop within three months of dropping it off at his shop. He claims that the laptop contained emails related to then-Vice President Joe Biden’s purported foreign business dealings and explicit videos.
