The FBI has arrested a serving member of US Army over plot to bomb major news network, according to reports. 

Jarrett William Smith was arrested on Saturday after he allegedly distributed information online on how to build bombs.

He is also said to have discussed Beto O’Rourke as a target and traveling to Ukraine to fight with far-right group Azov Battalion. 

Smith is said to have spoken with American, Craig Lang, who fought with the Right Sector in Ukraine, allegedly telling him ‘got knowledge of IEDs for days’.

He is said to have added: ‘We can make cell phone IEDs in the style of the Afghans. I can teach you that.’ 

In another chat with an FBI informant in August Smith is said to have discussed an attack within America, suggesting a major news network’s headquarters could be the target. 

Smith is said to have written: ‘A large vehicle bomb. Fill a vehicle full of [explosives] then fill a ping pong ball with [commonly available chemical] via drilling then injection. Put the ball in the tank of the vehicle and leave. 30 minutes later, BOOM.’ 

And when probed on ‘anyone down in Texas that would be a good fit for fire, destruction and death’ Smith, who transferred to Fort Riley, Kansas, in July, is said to have replied: ‘Outside of Beto? I don’t know enough people that would be relevant enough to cause a change if they died.’

Smith has been charged with distributing information relating to weapons of mass destruction. 

The FBI says he admits to providing online instructions for building bombs.
