Michael Hari's company submitted a proposal to build Trump's border wall
The affidavit describes a tangled, hateful criminal enterprise in which the four men from a rural part of IL, more than 500 miles from Bloomington, Minn., hoarded high-powered guns, made bombs and committed robberies at a drug dealer's house and three Wal-Mart Stores. A law enforcement affidavit alleges that all four men were in possession of fully automatic assault rifles from October 2017 to March 2018-apparently the basis for Tuesday morning's arrests. McWhorter will make his initial appearance in connection with the attempted IL bombing at a later date.
Prosecutors filed an affidavit detailing evidence they have against Michael Hari, 47, Joe Morris, 22, Michael McWhorter, 29, all from Clarence in eastern Ford County.
Michael Mcwhorter, 29, Joe Morris, 22, and Michael B. Hari, 47, were accused of carrying out a pipe bomb attack on the Dar al-Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington, Minnesota, on August 5 that damaged the building but caused no injuries, according to a statement from the Minnesota U.S. Attorney's Office.
According to reports, one of the offenders, Michael B. Hari, drafted a $10 billion plan to build Trump's "Mexico wall" after starting up a security company, Crisis Resolution Security Services.
Federal authorities announced on Tuesday the three have been arrested on gun charges and that they are suspects in the bombing of the Minnesota mosque and an attempted bombing of an IL abortion clinic.
A complaint said a tip in December led authorities to investigate the three men, after a person sent the local sheriff photos of guns and bomb-making material inside Hari's parents' home, where Hari often stayed.
"We would look at the wall as not just a physical barrier to immigration but also as a symbol of the American determination to defend our culture, our language, our heritage, from any outsiders", said Hari.
Morris told one informant that Hari had promised to pay him and McWhorter $18,000 for participating in the mosque bombing, according to the complaint.
The affidavit said McWhorter confessed on Saturday, telling authorities that it was Hari's idea to bomb the mosque to scare Muslims out of the country because they push their beliefs on everyone else. McWhorter also provided details of the bomb plots, authorities said. "A search warrant was also executed at a store/office owned by Hari, located at 100 S. Main Road in Clarence (Illinois.)" Even as officials in Illinois sorted through charges against the quartet, federal authorities in Bloomington, Minnesota, were announcing the mosque-related developments late Tuesday afternoon. Minnesota is home to an estimated 57,000 Somalis, the largest Somali population outside of east Africa, according to the MN State Demographic Center.
Mohamed Omar, executive director of the Muslim center serving Somalis, stated that at the time of the incident, "the mosque didn't receive any threats beforehand or claims of responsibility afterward".
