The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alerted law enforcement agencies about the increase in the number of threats following the unannounced bombing of former U.S. President Donald Trump's apartment in Florida.
DHS confirmed to Reuters that it sent a threat bulletin on Friday, but declined to give it to the agency. CNN, NBC and CBS reported the bulletin.
"The FBI and ICE have noted an increase in the number of threats against federal law enforcement officials and, to a lesser extent, other law enforcement agencies, as well as government officials, following the FBI's failure to execute a warrant for a robbery in Palm Beach, Florida," the release, according to CBS.
The document reads, among other things, "a threat to detonate a bomb in front of FBI headquarters and concerted calls for 'civil war' and 'military insurgency,'" the CBS television network reported.
Government agencies have identified "a pattern of clearly worded threats and intimidation against members of the judiciary, law enforcement and government agencies involved in the Palm Beach scuffle, including the federal judge who served the warrant for the Palm Beach scuffle.
According to the newsletter, the broadcasters noted that most of the threats were made on the Internet.
The warrants were made public on Friday after an unprecedented raid revealed that former Republican President Donald Trump had kept 11 sets of classified documents in his apartment building, and that the Department of Justice has little enough evidence to conduct a probe into possible violations of the Espionage Act.
Trump, his allies, some Republicans in Congress, and many conservative watchdogs have expressed anger at the actions of the FBI and officials involved in the investigation of Trump.
Some Trump supporters likened the FBI to the "Gestapo," while others called for its funding to be halted and accusations of its political motivation were made.
The Republicans in the week made new requests to publish the FBI document, which contains grounds for document withholding.
The head of the Anti-Defamation League, Jonathan Granblatt, wrote on Twitter, "The details of the ICE-FBI bulletin are disturbing. Let me be blunt: This is a direct result of the irresponsible, bogus rhetoric dismantling law enforcement on the part of the right-wing politicians and commentators.
