Authorities in Iowa have arrested a man who was found during a traffic stop to be carrying a rifle and a “hit list” that included President Biden and Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious diseases expert, The Los Angeles Times reported. Kuachua Brillion Xiong, from Merced, Calif., was taken into custody last week after allegedly telling police who pulled him over for driving aggressively that he was on his way to the White House “to kill persons in power,” according to federal court records that were unsealed Tuesday. Authorities said they found an AR-15-type rifle, ammunition, body armor, medical kits and a grappling hook in Xiong’s vehicle, per court records. Xiong’s “hit list” of targets was compiled from TikTok videos, according to court records. In addition to Biden and Fauci, the Times reported that the list included former Presidents Clinton and Obama and Meta Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg, among others. “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,” Secret Service agent Justin Larson said in an affidavit, according to the Times.
