A California man who was arrested on his way to DC after telling Iowa police he would do ‘whatever it takes,’ to kill political leaders on his ‘Tik Tok hit list,’ including President Biden and Chief Medical Adviser Anthony Fauci, is likely to plead insanity. 

Kuachua Brillion Xiong, 25, is being held at Pottawattamie County Jail in Council Bluffs after telling authorities he would do anything in order to ‘fight evil demons in the White House.’

On December 21, authorities seized an AR-15 rifle, ammunition, loaded magazines, body armor and medical kits from Xiong’s car. He had initially been stopped by a sheriff for driving aggressively and weaving in and out of traffic on Interstate 80, Fox News reported.

Xiong also had a TikTok ‘hit list,’ which included 100 videos, authorities said.  

After his arrest and a subsequent interrogation by the US Secret Service, Xiong allegedly made threats to kill high-profile figures including former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

He also was using the phrase ‘Save America’ which is associated with the conspiracy group QAnon, though he made no mention of being connected to QAnon.

Xiong has since been charged with making criminal threats against a former president and is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday. 

His federal defender, Michael F. Maloney, filed notice Thursday of Xiong’s ‘intent to reply upon an insanity defense at the time of any trial in this matter.’ 

‘He also provides notice that if he pursues an insanity defense, he will introduce expert evidence at trial relating to a mental disease bearing on the issue of guilt,’ Maloney added, noting that if prosecutors seek a mental examination of Xiong he will request a competency examination for his client.

‘He added that if released from custody he would immediately resume traveling to the White House in Washington, DC and ‘do whatever it takes’ to complete his plan.’ 

‘He further stated that he had no intention of returning to California to see his family because he plans on dying while fighting evil demons at the White House,’ the complaint added.

Xiong, who had recently been fired from his job as a grocery store worker, had the White House address on a GPS device, authorities said. 

He reportedly told the sheriff who arrested him that he was traveling as he wanted to ‘see things because it is unknown how long he has here on earth’ and that he didn’t need a hotel in Washington.

After his arrest, Xiong was questioned by the Secret Service and reportedly said that he was ‘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.’  

‘It is at this time Xiong began assembling the equipment needed to carry out his plan to kill those in power,’ Secret Service Special Agent wrote in the complaint.

Xiong reportedly claimed he would kill Biden and other political leaders  if the president did not comply with his demands, which Xiong failed to specify.

He planned to outsmart White House security by breaking in through a ‘weak spot’ he had identified in the building, the complaint read. 

According to federal prosecutors, he said he was going to use a grappling hook to climb over the perimeter fencing to enter the building and kill his targets.
