Two people accused of planning to bomb the Democratic Party's headquarters

Two California men now face a slew of charges regarding a plan to bomb the Democratic Party’s Sacramento headquarters. If convicted, the pair could wind up behind bars for 20 years.

According to federal prosecutors, 45-year-old Ian Benjamin Rogers and 37-year-old Jarrod Copeland had intended to carry out a series of violent attacks. 

“I want to blow up a democrat building bad,” Rogers had said, according to an indictment that was unsealed earlier this week. 

“According to the indictment, the defendants planned to use incendiary devices to attack their targets and hoped their attacks would prompt a movement,” said officials in a statement. 

At the beginning of this year, authorities found between 45 and 50 guns, five pipe bombs, and tons of ammunition inside Rogers’s home.
