Terror Suspect Feared Social Collapse

Joe Denoyer - February 24, 2017 10:45 pm

A lawyer for a Kansas man accused of plotting to attack Somali refugees says his client believed then President Barack Obama would declare martial law and not recognize the validity of the election if Donald Trump won — forcing militias to step in.

The defense claim of a “self-defensive posture” surfaced during a detention hearing Friday for Patrick Stein, whom prosecutors say was the leader of militia group called “The Crusaders.”

U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren did not immediately rule.
