A hacker who launched a digital protest following a not-guilty verdict against a police officer who killed a black motorist has been raided by the FBI.

The man known as “Vigilance” told the Daily Beast that FBI agents searched his home in Minnesota for allegedly hacking into government and education websites in the state in June. He’s accused of posting stolen email address and other information online.

The man, whose real identity wasn’t revealed, breached the websites after police officer Jeromino Yanez was found not guilty on charges of manslaughter for shooting black motorist Philando Castile

“They knocked, cleared the house with their guns,” the man said, adding that his electronic devices, including a laptop, were seized.

No charges have yet been filed.

The House Intelligence Committee is trying to force the FBI and attorney general to provide information on how the bureau has used a salacious dossier while investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The FBI and attorney general have been threatened with contempt if they don’t testify before the committee later this week, The Hill reports

Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., issued a subpoena for information on the dossier that was compiled by former spy, Christopher Steele. Neither the FBI nor the Attorney General’s Office has responded by the Sept. 1 deadline.

Democrats are accusing Nunes of a partisan effort to undercut the basis of the FBI investigation.

The Secret Service imposed a lockdown at the White House on Monday morning after a man threw a sign and notebook over the Pennsylvania Avenue fence.

The lockdown was ordered around 10:40 a.m. and lifted less than an hour earlier after two people were taken into custody.

None of the objects were deemed dangerous.

The lockdown prevented people from leaving or entering the White House.

President Trump, who was attending a 9/11 ceremony, returned to the White House during the lockdown, according to the Secret Service.

A former FBI agent is writing his first true-crime book about corruption, extortion and staged burglaries in the unlikely Texas town of Tenaha.

Former Agent Stewart Fillmore began investigating the case in 2009 and has turned it into a book entitled, “Tenaha: Corruption and Cover-Up in Small Town Texas.”

“You know dirty public officials. I think that’s an intriguing topic to a lot of people,” Fillmore told KTRE.

The case involved a federal civil lawsuit that accused elected officials in the small town of stopping black motorists and seeing their money and property under the threat of arrest.

“There was nothing that we found to be illegal that would rise to the level of putting someone in jail,” Fillmore said.

Fillmore got a break int he case after receiving a letter by then-Constable Fred Walker.

“It was an extortion letter and it was from someone calling themselves Jack Frost,” Fillmore said. “Jack Frost claimed that Fred Walker and another individual named Rod McClure were stealing narcotics out of the Tenaha City Marshal’s evidence room and that Jack Frost, in this extortion letter, wanted $70,000 from both of them for his silence.”

A state worker ended up in jail after reporting to the FBI that he was soliciting sex from a purported teen who never showed up at his house.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that Nicholas Deelstra, 54, called the FBI in late August about an alleged Craigslist scam. 

An employee with the Office of Rehabilitation in the state Department of Workforce Services, Deelstra said someone claiming to be the teen’s father messaged him, “demanding he send money to cover car repairs because” the family’s vehicle was damaged while the boy was trying to meet with the man.

Logan City Police took up the case and arrested Deelstra last week for alleged sex crimes.

The Tribune wrote:

Deelstra told a Logan officer that he agreed to meet with the teen for sex, despite knowing he was underage, court records state. Police also found sexually explicit messages between Deelstra and the purported teen on the man’s phone.

Deelstra was charged Monday in 1st District Court with third-degree felony counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and dealing inmaterials harmful to a minor, as well as two counts of class Amisdemeanor soliciting a minor by internet or text.
