A Trump supporter in Minnesota has pleaded guilty to wire fraud after filing fraudulent insurance claims for an act of arson he staged in September 2020 and then blamed on Black Lives Matter activists and Antifa.

A Trump supporter lied??? Color me shocked…

From the Department of Justice:

According to court documents, on September 23, 2020, Denis Vladmirovich Molla, 30, falsely reported to law enforcement that someone had lit his camper on fire and that three unknown males were near his home when he heard an explosion.

Molla also reported that his garage door was vandalized with spray painted graffiti stating, “Biden 2020,” “BLM,” and an Antifa symbol, and that his camper was targeted because it had a Trump 2020 flag displayed on it.

In reality, Molla started his own property on fire and spray painted the graffiti on his own garage.

According to court documents, Molla submitted multiple insurance claims seeking coverage for the damage to his garage, camper, vehicles, and residence caused by the fire.

When Molla’s insurance company denied some of those claims, Molla submitted a written complaint to the insurance company claiming that it was defrauding him and threatened to report the company to the Department of Commerce and to the Attorney General.

Molla also created and allowed others to create two GoFundMe accounts to benefit Molla and his family. In total, Molla submitted more than $300,000 in fraudulent insurance claims, and he received approximately $61,000 from his insurance company. Molla also received more than $17,000 from individual donors via GoFundMe.

Molla pleaded guilty today in U.S. District Court before Senior Judge David S. Doty to one count of wire fraud. A sentencing hearing will be scheduled at a later time.

This is the report from the local CBS News affiliate at the time of the event. Molla gives quite the performance blaming others in the clip.
