Jailed Imam Trying to Get Informant Killed from Jail
When Marcus "Abu Taubah" Robertson was first arrested, I recall thinking there was more to the story than originally alleged. I believe I was on to something here:
Imam Abu-Taubah, aka Marcus Robertson, is accused of training Jonathan Paul Jimenez, who had moved to central Florida from New York, in skills necessary to "participate in violent jihad overseas," skills like martial arts, firearms and knife training.Oh, but don't worry, the defense has filed a motion claiming that Robertson is a "holy man" so the whole murder-the-informant thing must be just some big misunderstanding!
Federal prosecutors said Robertson, a convicted felon, is telling people the name and description of the confidential informant in the case, and the information comes at a time when prosecutors said there's a plot to kill the informant.
