A 19-year-old man arrested in North Carolina in May after police discovered his van containing five guns, explosives and more than $ 500,000 in cash, planned to murder Joe Biden, court records show.
Alexander Hillel Treisman traveled within four miles of the Democratic presidential candidate's home in Delaware in early May, records show.
That was about a month after Treisman bought an AR-15 rifle in New Hampshire and wrote a checklist with the word "execution" on it, a federal judge said in a court order justifying Treisman's bailiff for child pornography.
"Should I kill Joe Biden?" Treisman published iFunny on April 15th on the meme sharing platform.
Triesman was charged in late September in federal court in the North Carolina Central District of possession and distribution of child pornography.
His actions in relation to Biden and other evidence against him were cited by the judge as grounds for his pre-trial detention in an order signed on October 6th.
"A timeline of Internet research the defendant conducted between March and May 2020 to obtain information on Joe Biden's home address, state gun laws, gun parts and night vision goggles, and actions taken by the defendant, including the posting of the above meme about Killing Joe Biden buys an AR-15 in New Hampshire, travels to a Wendy's within 4 miles of Joe Biden's house, and writes a checklist note that ends with execution, "the order reads.
While Treisman has no criminal record, the judge concluded that "no combination of the available release conditions would adequately ensure the safety of the community and that an excess of evidence shows that no conditions would guarantee the accused's presence in court".
A Treisman attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The warrant cites statements from an FBI agent explaining how Treisman was the subject of a criminal investigation into what information about Biden was revealed.
The agent said that on May 28, in response to a report of an abandoned van in a bank parking lot, police in Kannapolis, North Carolina, saw an AR-15 rifle, a box for a .380 caliber pistol, through the window of the vehicle , a canister "made from the explosive Tannerit" and a box of 5.56 caliber ammunition, depending on the order.
After the van was towed, a search of the vehicle found about $ 509,000 in US currency (presumably (Treisman's) inheritance), books (about survival, bomb-making, improvised weapons and Islam), drawings of swastikas and planes that were against Building encountered "and a Sig Sauer AR rifle, a 9-mm Luger, a Kel-Tec Sub-2000, a 22-caliber rifle and a Russian Mosin Nagant M91 / 30 bolt-action rifle.
Treisman arrived at the bank later that day in a Honda Accord and asked for court documents about the towed van. Police went to the bank after staff contacted them and took Treisman into custody.
A search of the Honda revealed two other handguns, a .380 caliber and a 9mm Luger, "hidden in a laundry basket".
Treisman carried driver's licenses from three states, including one named Alexander S. Theiss.
Treisman was arrested for allegedly carrying a hidden weapon. In a taped phone call with his prison mother on May 29, the day after his arrest, his mother, Kimberly Treisman, suggested that he "jump on bail," the order said.
In interviews with police officers and investigators from the Joint Terrorism Task Force, Treisman announced "that he has an interest in terrorist incidents and mass shootings" and that he had traveled across the country to buy firearms in various states.
A search of online aliases for Treisman found that he was referring to pedophilia "and executing those he hates," the order reads. A contribution from his pseudonym expressed "the desire to conduct a mass shooting," it said.
Searches of Treisman's cell phone and 15 other electronic devices seized from his vehicle revealed thousands of images of child pornography and more than 1,200 child porn videos.
A note created over the phone on October 15, 2019, "described a plan to conduct a mass shooting at the food court in a mall at Christmas or Black Friday," the order said.
In an April 8, 2020 internet post from one of Treisman's aliases, "AlextheBodacious," it said he would "do a Columbine for a while, (but) I think it would be better to use it for something more memorable." "
A week later, he posted a meme on iFunny entitled "Should I kill Joe Biden," according to the court documents.
