Authorities in Iowa arrested a heavily armed California man after he told police that he was driving to the White House to kill government leaders on his “hit list,” according to court papers.
According to federal court records unsealed on Dec. 29, authorities pulled over Kuachua Brillion Xiong, 25, on Dec. 21 in Cass County for driving aggressively and found an AR-15 style rifle, loaded magazines, boxes of ammunition, body armor, and medical kits in his vehicle.
Authorities also said that Xiong had set the White House on his GPS as his travel destination.
Xiong told investigators that he left his home near Sacramento, California around Dec. 18 to drive to the White House in Washington, D.C. “to kill persons in power.”
Speaking to investigators after being taken to the sheriff’s office, Xiong said he downloaded about 100 videos TikTok videos to compile a “hit list” of “evil individuals he intended to kill,” which included former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama, Chief Medical Adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci, and Meta Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg.
Xiong added that he would kill President Joe Biden unless he promised to comply to his demands, court records said.
“Xiong believes that he is the only person remaining who can free the United States of evil and it is necessary for him to kill those in positions of power,” the court records said.
“Xiong stated that he has no intention of returning to California to see his family because he plans on dying while fighting evil demons at the White House,” the court records also said.
Xiong is scheduled to appear before a federal judge in a detention hearing on Dec. 30.
The federal argument said that Xiong should remain in custody for threatening a former president, which is a federal crime.
