Former journalist arrested for threats against Jewish centers
March 3, 2017 at 2:02 PM

The FBI arrested a former journalist on Friday and charged him in connection with the threats to several Jewish community centers.

Juan M. Thompson, a former reporter for The Intercept, co-founded by Glenn Greenwald, was arrested in St. Louis and charged with cyberstalking an ex-girlfriend, and then communicating threats to Jewish centers around the country in her name

The criminal complaint says that in 2016, Thompson, 31, also emailed false allegations about the ex-girlfriend to her employer, and in another email accused her of possessing child pornography.

On Thompson's Twitter account, he identified his target as "Francesca" and wrote on Feb. 24, "Know any good lawyers? Need to stop this nasty/racist #whitegirl I dated who sent a bomb threat in my name & wants me to be raped in jail."

We were horrified to learn this morning that Juan Thompson, a former employee of The Intercept, has been arrested in connection with bomb threats against the ADL and multiple Jewish Community Centers in addition to cyberstalking. These actions are heinous and should be fully investigated and prosecuted. We have no information about the charges against Thompson other than what is included in the criminal complaint. Thompson worked for The Intercept from November 2014 to January 2016, when he was fired after we discovered that he had fabricated sources and quotes in his articles.

Personal life

Greenwald, who is openly gay, lives in Rio de Janeiro, the hometown of his partner, David Miranda.[6][72][109][110][111] Greenwald said in 2011 that his residence in Brazil was a result of the Defense of Marriage Act, an American law barring federal recognition of same-sex marriages which was overturned by the US Supreme Court two years later. The law had prevented his partner from receiving a visa to reside in the United States with him.[109]

In 2016, Miranda was elected to the Rio de Janeiro City Council as part of the PSOL party.[112]

Greenwald comes from a Jewish background, albeit largely non-practicing, and was never Bar Mitzvahed, stating that "My parents tried to inculcate me a little bit into organized Judaism, but they weren't particularly devoted to that, and my grandparents were, but it just never took hold." He says that he does believe in "the spiritual and mystical part of the world", including practicing yoga, but his moral precepts "aren't informed in any way by religious doctrine or, like, organized religion or anything."[113]
