An FAA employee who claimed "World War 3" would occur on Jan. 6 has been charged in connection with the riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Kevin Strong, an FAA employee in San Bernardino County, was under investigation prior to the Capitol attack, according to a newly unsealed affidavit.
A source told the FBI that Strong had exhibited signs of behavioral changes over the last few months, such as stockpiling items and tellings others to get ready for martial law, rioting and protesting.
