'Soros-Funded' Antifa Anarchist Arrested for Plot to Kill Trump Supporters on Jan 20
FBI arrests activist Daniel Alan Baker who claims he's funded by George Soros
The FBI has arrested an Antifa anarchist over a plot to kill supporters of President Donald Trump on January 20th.
33-year-old Daniel Alan Baker of Tallahassee, Florida, is facing a federal charge involving transmitting a threat to kidnap or injure.
Prosecutors describe Baker as a “hardcore leftist” who was angry about the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan 6, the Tallahassee Democrat reported.
Baker allegedly offers this money in the form of cash rewards for information on Trump supporters.
He is alleged to have attempted to recruit "like-minded" individuals to join him at the Florida state Capitol, days before Inauguration Day.
Baker is alleged to have taken part in a number of Black Lives Matter and anti-police protests around the country last year.
The former soldier received a less-than-honorable discharge from the Army after he went AWOL when his unit was to deploy to Iraq, according to the Miami Herald.
Prosecutors said Baker, who has reported ties to a militia group in Syria, planned to violently confront protesters at the Capitol on Sunday.
He was also featured on VICE and, in 2020, participated in the CHAZ insurrection in Seattle, per DOJ documents.
Baker posted links to CNN on his “Call to Arms” to kill Trump supporters and police officers on Inauguration Day.
He wanted to stockpile AK-47s and build bombs in the CHAZ district in Seattle to start “the revolution.”
The criminal complaint included Daniel Baker saying he received Soros money and he will be offering cash rewards for information on Trump supporters in his video.
Baker also offers cash rewards to any of his followers who send him information on Trump supporters at the US Capitol protest and riots.
The FBI has warned about the substantial risk of violence at protests expected this weekend at all 50 state capitals.
The agency first received a warning in October that Baker threatened violence and was trying to “recruit and train” others via social media to advance his “anti-government or anti-authority violent extremism ideology,” the criminal complaint said.
It cited multiple violent threats to fellow citizens with opposing political views and Baker’s advocacy for killing US military officers
“Baker issued a call to arms for like-minded individuals to violently confront protesters gathered at the Florida Capitol this Sunday,” federal prosecutors said.
“He specifically called for others to join him in encircling any protesters and confining them at the Capitol complex using firearms.”
The battle cry was part of an 18-second video Baker posted on his YouTube channel showing him printing out fliers with the headline, “CALL TO ARMS JANUARY 20TH!”
It also said that “armed racists” planted the Confederate flag in the US Capitol and that they would continue to wage an armed coup of every statehouse in the country.
"We need ALL FLORIDA RESIDENTS to RISE UP!” the flier said.
"Here in Florida we must circle the terrorists who attack the Capitol!
"Let them take the capitol and fight with the cops.
"SURROUND THEM AND TRAP THEM INSIDE.”
