Adam Rahuba, a self-purported Antifa leader in Pittsburgh, is suspended from Twitter after threatening violence against President Trump if he fails to concede by the 2020 deadline.
The tweet, which was directed at @realDonaldTrump, warned that he was “armed & will retaliate.”
The tweet violated Twitter’s “hateful conduct” policy.
“If you do not concede by Sunday at noon, we will begin to block roads in conservative areas. Your supporters will not be able to go to work or the grocery story to feed their families. We are armed & will retaliate to attempts at vehicle manslaughter.”
Before Rahuba’s Twitter account was suspended, he made multiple comments about “targeting conservative politicians” and how he’s begun “operations directly against MAGA voters.”
Rahuba has recently created a Parler account where he has continued his threats.
“Donald Trump has begun the transition but has failed to concede by the deadline set by the Antifa Board of Leadership. We will begin road-blocking operations in small towns and suburbs beginning tomorrow in the following states:
Antifa refuses to START violence however any attempts to “run over” protesters will be handled appropriately. We are not liberals. We do not fear or hate guns.”
Another post reads that “the next four years are going to be hell” for Trump supporters.
Antifa is a left-wing political movement. Over the summer, Trump pledged to classify the left-wing group as a terrorist organization.
During the September 29 debate, then-Democratic Party presidential candidate Joe Biden responded to President Trump’s comments about Antifa being a violent organization by telling him that Antifa is simply “an idea” and “not an organization.”
Jake Sullivan, Biden’s new White House National Security Advisor, called Antifa “a loose collection of people on the internet.”
“The United States has the capacity to designate foreign organizations as terrorist organizations, not domestic organizations. So we can start with the fact that this is not a kind of credible announcement that was made, it was a purely political announcement,” Sullivan said.
He added, “I’m not a deep expert on Antifa such as it is, but from what I do know, I think Antifa is probably better described as a loose collection of people on the Internet who share tactics and tools and, you know, people individually identify as part of this loose network, not so much an organization with the structure and leadership and funding and so forth.”
DOJ says FBI informant on Biden had ‘high-level’ contacts with Russian intelligence
In a memorandum filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada to support Alexander Smirnov’s continued pre-trial detention, the Department of Justice(DOJ) wrote that he claimed to have had “contacts with multiple foreign intelligence agencies…[who] could resettle Smirnov outside the United States if he were released.”
Smirnov, a dual citizen of the United States and Israel, was arrested and charged on Feb. 14 with making false statements to the FBI about Biden’s connections to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings Limited, which employed his son Hunter Biden as a member of the board with a monthly salary of $50,000 during his term as vice president.
“During his custodial interview on February 14, Smirnov admitted that officials associated with Russian intelligence were involved in passing a story about [Hunter Biden],” wrote special counsel David Weiss in the filing. “Smirnov apparently attended a separate meeting with Russian Official 1, [an] individual who controls groups that are engaged in overseas assassination efforts.”
The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that Smirnov was a confidential human source who provided information that was used to prepare a report, known as an FD-1023, about Joe Biden’s alleged connections to the Burisma business partners of Hunter Biden. That report has previously served as evidence contradictingJoe Biden’s claim that he knew nothing of his son’s business dealings; a notion at the center of an impeachment inquiry against him.
The FD-1023 detailing Smirnov’s claims was released by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa on July 20, 2023, after it was provided to him by government whistleblowers. “[The] indictment confirms several points Senator Grassley has made repeatedly. The informant behind the FD-1023 was, indeed, a long-serving, trusted FBI source used by the agency for criminal investigations since the Obama administration. In fact, he was so trusted that the FBI provided him authorization ‘to engage in illegal activity for investigative purposes’,” a spokesperson for Grassley told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
