A California man arrested in Iowa with an assault rifle and body armor last week allegedly told investigators he was putting together a list of “evil individuals” he wanted to kill, including former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, according to court records.
The Cass County sheriff’s deputy who pulled Xiong over said that Xiong told him he was going to D.C. to take pictures of the White House, that “he was traveling to see things because it is unknown how long he has here on Earth,” and that Xiong expressed “his disapproval for government due to the sex abuse of children, some of which that has occurred by President [Joe] Biden.”
When police searched Xiong’s car, they found “an AR-15 style rifle, loaded magazines, boxes of ammunition and several items of body armor and medical kits,” the deputy alleged.
Later, agents with the U.S. Secret Service conducted an interview with Xiong, during which he allegedly told them he was told by God to “combat evil demons in the White House” and that it was “necessary for him to kill those in positions of power.”
Xiong also allegedly compiled a “hit list” using around 100 videos downloaded from TikTok, “which included but is not limited” to Clinton, Obama, Fauci, and Zuckerberg, the affidavit says. Xiong also allegedly said during the interview that he would also kill Biden “unless he promised to comply to Xiong’s demands.”
