Thompson, a 31-year-old former reporter from St. Louis, Friday in connection with eight bomb threats called into several Jewish institutions over the last month, including the An- ti-Defamation (ADL) League, officials said. Thompson, who was fired as a reporter for The Inter- cept, allegedly made threats to exact revenge against a woman who had ended a romantic relationship with him, according to law enforce- ment officials. Thompson has also been charged with cyberstalking. According to law enforce- ment, Thompson does not appear to be behind the ro- bocalls against dozens of JCCs nationwide, which is still part of an active FBI investigation. "Thompson's alleged pat- tern of harassment not only involved the defamation of his female victim, but his threats intimidated an entire commu- nity," FBI Assistant Director- in-Charge William F. Sweeney Jr. said in a statement. Thompson worked as a re- porter for The Intercept, a left- center online news site started in 2014 by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar, from November 2014 to January 2016, when he was fired for fabricating sources and quotes in his stories, according to a state- ment Friday by The Intercept.
