FBI Attack Suspect Ricky Schiffer May Have Posted Truth Social

The area near Center and Smith Streets closed for hours during a standoff in Clinton County, Ohio, Thursday, August 11, 2022, after an armed man tried to break into the FBI's Cincinnati office and fled north on TE Highway was done.

Officials say the man who attempted to breach security at an Ohio FBI office Thursday morning was posting messages on former President Donald Trump’s Truth Social site, even though he was involved in the effort.

The man who was shot to death after a day-long standoff was identified by the Associated Press and others as Ricky Schiffer. Law enforcement officials said he is believed to have been present at the US Capitol riot on January 6 last year.

A USA Today review of online postings by an account named “Ricky Schiffer” reveals that the account had recently posted angry reactions to reports of an FBI raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Florida home.

The same account posted during or shortly after the FBI infiltration describes the man’s efforts.
