Utah man who allegedly made threats against Biden fatally shot during FBI raid on home

A Utah man was fatally shot after FBI agents raided his home in connection with death threats he allegedly made against President Joe Biden and other political figures.

Craig Robertson was killed Wednesday morning in a house attack in Provo, multiple outlets reported. In a statement, the FBI said agents were attempting to issue an arrest and search warrant when the shooting occurred.

“The FBI takes seriously all shooting incidents involving our agents or task force members,” the FBI said in a statement to ABC News. “In accordance with FBI policy, the shooting incident is being reviewed by the FBI’s Inspection Department. As this is an ongoing matter, we cannot provide further details.”

Court documents obtained by Fox 13 reveal Robertson’s numerous threats against political figures, including Biden and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

“I hear Biden is coming to Utah,” Robertson wrote in a Facebook post Monday, days before Biden was due to appear in the state. “Dig out my old Ghille [sic] grab and wipe the dust from the M24 sniper rifle.

In March, Robertson said he traveled to New York to kill Bragg, according to indictment documents.

“I wait in the courthouse parking lot with my suppressed Smith & Wesson M&P 9mm to smoke a radically silly accuser who should never have been elected,” Robertson wrote on social media. “BYE, BYE, TO ANOTHER CORRUPTED B______!!!”

When an agent tried to talk to Robertson about the threat at his home on March 19, Robertson replied, “I said it was a dream!” and told the officer not to return without a warrant, according to the indictment documents.

Days later, Robertson posted in all caps on Facebook, “To my friends at the Federal Bureau of Idiots: I know you’re reading this and your agents have no idea how close you’ve come to ‘violent extermination’.”

Robertson faced three issues: interstate threats; threats against the president; and influencing, obstructing and retaliating against federal law enforcement officials through threats.
