Mitchell Hopkins, a militia leader in New Mexico who was arrested by the FBI over the weekend on weapons charges, allegedly said his group was plotting to assassinate President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and other liberal figures.
Documents unsealed in court on Monday show the FBI began looking into Hopkins in 2017 after receiving reports that said his group, known as the United Constitutional Patriots, was "training to assassinate George Soros, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama."

Didn’t some guy try to assassinate a dozen congressional baseball players a few years ago?
Seem to remember some news about that guy....
He was a Bernie volunteer which has zero to do with his actions...
The fact is, murderous loons exist on both sides of the aisle...
Crazy doesn’t have a preferred political persuasion...with the notable exception of communism’s draw to genocidal maniacs(stalin, mao, pol pot)
Anyhow, crazies are simply that: crazy....

The article claims he allegedly said they were training to assassinate Obama, Clinton and Soros but then says witnesses reported that to fbi which they used to investigate. So they wrote an article with a sensational headline based on hearsay with nothing to really back it up. I could write an article saying the Australian prime minister is allegedly a CIA plant that does coc aine off dead babies because a "witness" called the police to report it.

So we are supposed to believe this guy volunteered this info because he just couldn't hide "the truth" anymore? Or that the investigators "got it out of him"? Give me a friggin break.
