In the wake of the FBI’s search of former President Trump’s residence in Florida, we have received information of an attack on an FBI office in Ohio.
Trump claimed that federal agents had broken into a safe in his house to seek for papers sought by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).
The agents took a total of 15 boxes containing secret material, but did not specify what was inside.
Thursday morning in Cincinnati, a guy attempted to breach into an FBI building. Ohio State Highway Patrol officers exchanged gunfire.
The FBI Cincinnati posted:
“At approximately 9 AM this morning an armed subject attempted to breach the Visitor Screening Facility at #FBI Cincinnati. After an alarm and a response by FBI special agents, the subject fled north onto Interstate 71.”

According to NBC 15 News, a suspect shot at police from a cornfield after fleeing the scene in a vehicle. The outcome was the closure of northbound Interstate 71. Additionally, a team of FBI negotiators has arrived at the area.
FBI field office authorities in Cincinnati reported WLWT that the scenario began when the armed guy entered the office and made threats.
According to the News Journal, “Police scanner traffic indicates that Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers are currently pursuing a person who somehow tried to break into the FBI building in Cincinnati.”
Troopers are discussing using stop sticks and have “long guns” out as they pursue a northbound white Ford Crown Victoria sedan. The suspect just passed the I-71 Wilmington Road exit and troopers are positioned at I-71 and SR 73 and at I-71 and US 68.
11:23 FBI officers are on the scene and an FBI helicopter is landing. No other scanner chatter to report nor additional info of note from reporter at scene.
11:48 a.m.: Incident is ongoing. Clinton County EMA reports that earlier in incident, multiple shots fired by both suspect and officers. The suspect is wearing body armor, originally was wearing an orange shirt, now wearing a gray shirt. I-71 closed both directions between SR 68 and SR 73.

“Blood splatter on his shorts. Right thigh area,” a police helicopter officer reported over the radio. “Part of windshield shot out … Suspect on knees, holding rifle.”
“Rifle down for the moment. He is on his knees.”
As of late Thursday morning, all buildings within one mile of the location of the suspect are under lockdown.

Despite the fact that leftists attacked and even killed police for two years during a time of unrest when Trump was in office, Democrats on social media are seeking to blame conservatives for the purported attack.

More on this story via The Republic Brief:
According to a new account of the Monday operation at Mar-a-Lago, Eric Trump revealed that FBI agents refused to hand over the search warrant for the property raid, as well as going into parts of the property they shouldn’t have been in.
The FBI would not give Trump’s lawyer, Christina Bobb, a copy of the search warrant, but “showed it to her from about 10 feet away,” according to Eric. Additionally, he said he would be “thrilled” to learn whether the search was justified. CONNITUE READING…
