The FBI said Thursday it was aware of several current and former state and federal government officials being targeted online as traitors for purportedly helping to rig the recent presidential race.

FBI Director Christopher A. Wray is among more than a dozen individuals accused of treason, a capital punishment, by whoever is running the recently launched “Enemies of the People” website.

Each person listed is depicted by an image showing their face under crosshairs alongside a reason for their inclusion. Several entries include the person’s addresses and a picture of their home.

The FBI told The Washington Times it was aware of the site but declined to comment further.

Christopher Krebs, the former U.S. cybersecurity official whom President Trump recently fired, is among targets listed on the “Enemies” site, his lawyer Jim Walden revealed Wednesday night.

Mr. Walden said he learned about the site a day after filing a lawsuit on behalf of Mr. Krebs in light of a lawyer for the Trump campaign, Joseph diGeneova, saying his client should be shot.

“If anyone needs to be reminded that public calls for violence beget violence, this is the clarion call,” Mr. Walden said in a statement decrying the site.

“If blood is spilled, it is on the hands of the president, his campaign, his lawyers and the silent Republicans standing in the president’s shadow,” Mr. Walden said.

The Washington Times found a website matching the description given by Mr. Walden. It remained online Friday after an earlier iteration had recently vanished from another web address.

The site alleges the people listed committed a crime punishable by death for purportedly having a part in Mr. Trump recently losing his race for reelection to Democratic challenger Joseph R. Biden.

“Changing votes and working against the President is treason and patriotic Americans should never forget those who helped overthrow our democracy!” it says.

In addition to Mr. Krebs, the former head of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency, and Mr. Wray, the site lists various state officials and employees of a company that makes voting machines.

Specific targets of the site include the Democratic governors of Michigan and Nevada and the Republican governors of Georgia and Arizona, as well as several secretaries of state, among others.

People allegedly employed by Dominion Voting Systems, a company that conspiracy theorists allege to have played a role in purportedly “rigging” the recent election, are listed as well.

Mr. Trump fired Mr. Krebs as director of CISA admittedly because the latter said the presidential race was the most secure ever. Mr. Trump denies this and alleges his loss was the result of fraud.

Joseph diGenova, a lawyer for the Trump campaign in its bid to overturn the results of the election, suggested on TV channel Newsmax shortly after Mr. Krebs was fired that he should also be shot.

Lawyers for Mr. Krebs subsequently filed a lawsuit Tuesday alleging the Trump campaign, Mr. diGenova and Newsmax engaged in a “calculated and pernicious conspiracy to defame and injure” him.

Defendants in the lawsuit did not return messages requesting comment on the case.

Leaders of federal law enforcement and security agencies have said they have seen no evidence to suggest Mr. Biden’s win occurred because of fraud.

Dominion, which makes voting hardware and software used in several states, has denied malfeasance and has warned that false claims being shared about the company were putting its workers at risk.
