A New York man is now in custody after authorities discovered a plan for a suicide bombing in DC on Election Day.
Local and federal agents arrested and searched the home of Paul Rosenfeld in Hudson Valley, New York on Wednesday. Agents found eight pounds of black powder explosive that Rosenfeld planned to use in his suicide bomb.
According to NY News 4, the plan was exposed when Rosenfeld told Pennsylvanian journalist of the plan to explode the bomb on the National Mall. He said he was worried about the country’s direction.
Rosenfeld built a 200-pound device that would detonate using the eight pounds of black powder.
Rosenfeld has been charged with unlawful manufacture of a destruction device and interstate transportation and receipt of an explosive.
Thankfully the terror plot was foiled, and authorities say there is no threat to the public. The idea of a man in his basement building a bomb is troublesome in this current political environment where people like Hillary Clinton calling for an end to civility. When politicians say things like Hillary, people like Rosenfeld build bombs.
