Joe Biden’s FBI has closed Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake’s official campaign office “indefinitely” following an apparent terrorist attack directed at Lake and her staff.
Yesterday Lake received two envelopes filled with “suspicious white powder” and “abusive messages” directed at the popular Republican, reported The Daily Mail. The threats necessitated a response from the FBI.
Both local police and the FBI visited Lake’s campaign offices from 10 a.m. on Saturday and 5 p.m. on Sunday, the outlet adds, and the campaign is considering the threats an “attack.”
A hazmat team and the local bomb squad both responded, and the FBI is now reportedly in possession of the letters and white powder for analysis.
Now Lake, who continues to find herself in a razor thin race against Democrat Katie Hobbs, will apparently be deprived of her campaign office for the last day of the election, courtesy of Biden’s FBI.
“Lake’s office is now shut down indefinitely following the attack,” reported The Gateway Pundit, citing Jack Posobiec.
“I have just arrived to the Kari Lake office,” wrote Posobiec on Twitter, noting that it had been “shut down” following the apparent attack.

“This office right here, right behind me is shut down right now,” Posobiec told viewers, “I’m told it may be shut down for the rest – not only of the campaign – the rest of the year,” because of the alleged attack.
Lake’s opponent, Hobbs, has been criticized for dodging both debates and the general voting public after a disastrous media appearance in which she was accused of being “scared to step on that stage” to debate Lake.

“I have stood up to this bully for the past two years,” Hobbs said of Lake, after reaffirming that she will not debate.
“A debate never helps a candidate win,” told the left wing outlet. “I mean, it is — we’re talking to voters and I guarantee it’s not something they’re concerned about.”
Lake is part of the coalition of pro-Trump Arizona politicians vying to overwhelm the state after the alleged loss of 45th President Donald Trump in 2020.
Also included are Blake Masters, who is running for U.S. Senate, and Mark Finchem, who is running for Arizona Secretary of State.
