With all that’s come out about Hillary, it wouldn’t be that surprising. All of this is supposed to go down the day before the election. The states in question? New York, Texas and Virginia are the possible targets, but no specific locations are known at this time.
U.S. authorities are taking the threat seriously, though the sources stress the intelligence is still being assessed and its credibility hasn’t been confirmed. Counterterrorism officials were alerted to the threat out of abundance of caution.
A senior FBI official told CBS News, “The counterterrorism and homeland security communities remain vigilant and well-postured to defend against attacks here in the United States. The FBI, working with our federal, state and local counterparts, shares and assesses intelligence on a daily basis and will continue to work closely with law enforcement and intelligence community partners to identify and disrupt any potential threat to public safety.”
Intelligence about potential threats always increases during holiday seasons and when big events are approaching.
