PROVOCATEUR? Attorney: FBI trained NJ blogger to incite others. “A New Jersey blogger facing charges in two states for allegedly making threats against lawmakers and judges was trained by the FBI on how to be deliberately provocative, his attorney said Tuesday. . . . Prosecutors have acknowledged that Turner was an informant who spied on radical right-wing organizations, but the defense has said Turner was not working for the FBI when he allegedly made threats against Connecticut legislators and wrote that three federal judges in Illinois deserved to die.” Hmm. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. I do remember hearing about this advice from the 1960s — you can always spot the FBI informant, because he’ll be the one constantly urging illegal actions.
