FLORIDA: FBI Raids Home Of White Supremacist Leader Who Claimed To Have Trained Parkland Mass Shooter

The Tallahassee Democrat reports:

Jordan Jereb was led away in handcuffs from his mother’s Tallahassee home Wednesday after the FBI searched for evidence in connection with misinformation he gave regarding the shooter in last month’s Parkland school massacre. Jereb was arrested on charges of violation of probation by the Florida Department of Corrections Probation office. He was on probation for a 2016 charged of extortion by threats which he pleaded no contest to in December of that year.

After Nikolas Cruz opened fire inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14, killing 17 people, Jereb said that Cruz had done paramilitary training with the white nationalist group Jereb leads. Jereb later walked back on the claims he made to the Anti-Defamation League and others, but not before the story was picked up by the Associated Press and then in news publications and outlets around the world.
