The suspect, identified by the officials as Ricky Shiffer, 42, seems to have appeared in a video posted on Facebook on Jan. 5, 2021, showing him attending a pro-Trump rally at Black Lives Matter Plaza in Washington the night before the Capitol was stormed. https://t.co/Rh3LirrzEW— Adam Goldman (@adamgoldmanNYT) August 11, 2022

Ricky Shiffer joined Twitter in April 2022 and only tweeted 55 times, all of them mentions. Most of the tweets are about the 2020 election and some contain violent rhetoric. pic.twitter.com/wJyQsU8MO8— Shayan Sardarizadeh (@Shayan86) August 11, 2022
The NYT has identified the Ohio shooting suspect as "Ricky Shiffer." There is a Truth Social account using that same name. On the same day the FBI executed a warrant on Mar A Lago, the account made a call to "be ready for combat" and to "Kill the FBI on sight." https://t.co/xifjCxQ43N pic.twitter.com/j99w3NJxZ3— Travis View (@travis_view) August 11, 2022
The last post was from the the Ricky Shiffer account on Truth Social is from this morning. It states:— Travis View (@travis_view) August 11, 2022
"If you don't hear from me, it is true I tried attacking the F.B.I., and it'll mean either I was taken off the internet, the F.B.I. got me, or they sent the regular cops while" pic.twitter.com/K0XsRprmBL

NEW: These photos appear to show Ricky Shiffer, the suspect in the FBI office attack, behind police lines during the Jan 6th attack on the US Capitol. Final image is Shiffer's social media profile photo, for comparison. I am not 100%, but the face is a close match. pic.twitter.com/LgRVd4iCPD— Chad Loder (@chadloder) August 11, 2022
Kari Lake now wants to disband the FBI: “We’re gonna push back with our state’s rights. We’re sovereign states. We are not serfs of the federal government.” pic.twitter.com/DxKEvf17N2— Ron Filipkowski ?? (@RonFilipkowski) August 11, 2022
150 million Americans are literally Ricky Shiffler right now. They have been fed a steady diet of misinformation and disinformation for years. The FBI is not even close to prepared for what is coming to their doorstep. https://t.co/NZm5a6ApRn— Shawn Breen (@shawnpbreen) August 11, 2022
What do you think?
Is Ricky Shiffer a legit morally outraged American patriot or was this a Deep State op? Are the MAGApedes rising up against Deep State tyranny? Is 1776 commencing again?
Note: I won’t pretend to know what is going on here. Could be fake. Could be real given the numbers. Build the wall here though.
