Whether a Republican or Democrat is in charge, it's the same old, same old. The details aren't out yet but let me guess: The feds find some dumb guy on the Internet who likes to type "Death to the USA" and then they suck him in, set him up with what looks like a complicated bomb that he never in a million years would be able to create himself, and then arrest him when he tries to detonate the fake bomb.
It's the same routine used in Dallas a few years back.
I first heard of this "catch the dumb guy as part of the War on Terror" trick on This American Life. I listened to that episode about it three or four times and I was always struck with how over-the-top zealous the U.S. Attorney who prosecuted the case sounded. It was only when I went back and listened to it the last time that I caught his name: Christopher Christie. Yep, that Chris Christie.
