Threats at Michigan Capital: Were They an FBI Plot?

An email sent to the Michigan capital and Michigan Hall of Justice on Saturday, July 6, threatened lethal bombs in the “name of Palestine.” But staffers are wondering if the emails were an FBI plot (false flag).

The emails reminded staffers of what happened when FBI operatives goaded a kidnap plot by several men against Gov Gretchen Whitmer in October of 2020 (8 were charged, 4 were convicted and two acquitted). It was widely seen as FBI entrapment due to the presence of an “agent provocateur.” This email doesn’t exactly match their usual targets, but who knows?

One Michigan staffer released a copy of the emails to The Gateway Pundit:

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Lead azide” is an explosive. NOAA stated that it comes as “Needles or white powder. Explodes at 350°C. Insoluble in water. May explode from shock, heat, flame or friction when dry. The primary hazard is the blast effect of an instantaneous explosion and not flying projectiles and fragments.”

Threats of a similar nature were also sent to Pennsylvania’s capital in Harrisburg on the same day as the Michigan emails.

USA today reported about lead azide, which was also mentioned in the PA emails.

“It’s very sensitive and can go off from a simple bump, friction, or heat. Because of this, it’s mainly used in small amounts in things like detonators to set off bigger explosions.

Lead azide has been used in bombings and terror attacks.

After the Sept. 11 attacks, investigators said planned secondary attacks were to include bombings that would have used lead azide.

Lead azide was used in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. The truck bomb was detonated with lead azide, destroying the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, killing 168 people.”

The email seemed odd, and the address was unverified. DNMX (darknet email exchange) is the dark web anonymous email service and has been registered since 2019. It allows anyone to securely send emails to the regular internet without revealing their true identity. The FBI, CIA… they’re all very well aware of the service.  Anything is possible in our leftist tangled web of a government.

In January, emails were also sent to the Michigan capital and several other states, prompting a brief evacuation. The FBI ruled those threats as a hoax. The other states -Connecticut, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Montana, Maine- received similar email threats. This email threat seems different, which may be why staffers were suspicious of it.

Rather than the FBI’s usual targets of “right wing domestic” terrorists, this email appears to be from a pro-Palestinian source. The buildings were searched in all states where the emails were received, and nothing was found, which is the norm for anonymous threats.  No one can take the chance that the threats could be real, so time and energy is expended on searching for bombs. The Lansing, Michigan capital is only one place that is a target either for crazies or government operatives.
