(FiveNation.com)- Two weeks ago, Iowa sheriffs pulled over a heavily-armed California man who was on his way to Washington DC to “do whatever it takes” to kill the government officials on his hit list.
Kuachua Brillion Xiong, 25, was pulled over in Cass County, Iowa on December 21 for driving aggressively, speeding, and weaving in and out of traffic.
In the vehicle, Cass County Sheriff’s sergeant Tyler Shiels discovered an AR-15 rifle, ammunition, loaded magazines, body armor, and medical kits. On Xiong’s phone was a GPS app that revealed his destination was the White House.
Among Xiong’s possessions was a “hit list” of “evil individuals,” including President Biden and Dr. Anthony Fauci, as well as former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was also on Xiong’s hit list.
Xiong, a grocery store employee from Merced, California, told law enforcement his day job was just his “cover” until he was called by God to “combat evil demons in the White House.”
Two months ago, after he was fired from his “cover” job, Xiong started gathering the weapons and supplies he needed to begin his trip to Washington DC. In addition to his arsenal, Xiong also had a wad of cash which he told law enforcement was earmarked for his funeral expenses.
During questioning, Xiong expressed his disapproval of the federal government over “the sex abuse of children,” adding that that kind of behavior “had to be dealt with.”
Xiong showed investigators a drawing of the White House grounds where he had noted what he claimed were the weak spots he identified during his research. According to the complaint, Xiong said he compiled his hit list by downloading TikTok videos.
He told investigators that nothing would stop him from carrying out his mission. If they set him free, he would not return to his home in California. Instead, he would continue to Washington DC to kill the people on his hit list.
Xiong, who has been held in the Pottawattamie County Jail since December 23, was charged with making criminal threats against a former president.
He appeared in court last Thursday and according to court records, Xiong’s attorney, Mike Maloney, signaled his intent to use an insanity defense.
