Juan Thompson, 31, has been charged with cyberstalking and making no less than eight separate bomb threats against Jewish organizations.
Thompson is from St. Louis Missouri and worked for Glenn Greenwald's The Intercept. He also wrote for some of the popular liberal blogs such as Daily Kos.
The FBI alleges that the bomb threats were made in connection with Thompson's anger over the breakup of his romantic relationship after which he allegedly embarked on "a sustained campaign to harass and intimidate" the woman in question.
The harassment including making four bomb threats in her name and then four in his own name, with the intention of misleading the public into believing she was behind it all in a campaign against him.
Thompson has stayed off social media for the last three days. His last tweets were about a "white nasty woman" who "filed a false lie" (are there any true lies?) against him, an African-American.
His tweets also referenced a visit by the Secret Service over some of "his politics" and online behavior.
Thompson was terminated from The Intercept for making up large portions of a feature about Dylann Roof, the white supremacist gunman who, on June 17, 2005 executed nine people in a Charleston church.
Although there have been about 100 bombing threats against Jewish community centers this year in the U.S., law enforcement doesn't believe that Thompson is behind the majority of those--it was likely other anti-Semitic liberals or neo-Nazi scum.
At the time he was arrested, Thompson apparently was working for the Gateway Housing Foundation, a non-profit that provides "affordable, safe and secure housing."
