http://dailycaller.com/

The Federal Bureau of Investigation reportedly described conspiracy theorists as a domestic terrorist threat in a document obtained by Yahoo News.

A May 30 FBI intelligence bulletin from FBI’s Phoenix field office says that “conspiracy theory-driven domestic extremists” are growing threats according to Yahoo News.

The document adds that the FBI believes the emergence of these extremists may increase during the 2020 presidential election cycle.

The  FBI document mentions the network QAnon, a network that maintains there is a deep state conspiracy against President Donald Trump, and the conspiracy theory Pizzagate that claims a pedophile ring was run out of a Washington, D.C. pizza joint’s basement and involved the Clintons.

“The FBI assesses these conspiracy theories very likely will emerge, spread, and evolve in the modern information marketplace, occasionally driving both groups and individual extremists to carry out criminal or violent acts,” the document said, adding that “the uncovering of real conspiracies or cover-ups involving illegal, harmful, or unconstitutional activities by government officials or leading political figures,” makes these threats more intense.

“While our standard practice is to not comment on specific intelligence products, the FBI routinely shares information with our law enforcement partners in order to assist in protecting the communities they serve,” the FBI said in a statement to Yahoo News.

The FBI did not yet respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.

News of the document follows President Donald Trump extending support to Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Republican Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy in their effort to label ANTIFA a domestic terrorist organization.

  1. I have ZERO faith in the FBI given how they’ve conducted themselves going after a duly elected President. These are a bunch of lawless people themselves given too much authority over “we the people”. They all consider themselves above the law so forgive me if I doubt their motives in designating QAnon as a bunch of terrorists. As far as I know, and I’ll admit I don’t know much, QAnon just puts out information. Since when is that terrorism? One simply has to do some research to make sure the information they’re disseminating is legit. Are they advocating violence? I don’t believe they are! ANTIFA is definitely a terrorist group as they are calling for violence.

  2. Let’s get this straight. I recently discovered Q. I find it interesting to say the least and very entertaining. I also play Red Dead Redemption, a western video game where you kill animals and people. Yet here i sit, not killing animals and people because of the video game. It is entertainment. Extreme Mofo;s will find what they want to an do extreme Mofo stuff. Stands to reason that i will not do extreme sh+t because i read about it on some website, so to me this a typical demo ploy to keep America in the dark because we are too stupid to think for ourselves.

  3. Brings back thoughts of the, “Minority Report”.
