CALIF. (KERO) — ABC News reported a California man was charged by the Justice Department for allegedly having a cache of weapons in his car to "kill people in power".

Kuachua Xiong allegedly told the Sheriff Deputies in Iowa that he was recently fired from his job and headed to Washington, D.C. According to the affidavit, Xiong was working at a local grocery store in Merced, CA.

The Sheriff Deputies stopped Xiong after weaving in and out of traffic and allegedly had an AR-15 style rifle, loaded magazines, boxes of ammunition and several items of body armor and medical kits.

He stated that his employment at the grocery store was to be maintained as a "cover" until called upon by God to "combat evil demons in the White House".

In the affidavit, it states that Xiong believes he's the only person remaining that can free the United States of evil and that it is necessary to kill those in positions of power.

During this time, Xiong assembled the equipment needed to carry out his plan to kill those in power: an assault rifle, assault rifle magazines, ammunition, body armor, medical supplies, dark clothing, grappling hook, food and cash.

Xiong told investigators that left his home on Dec. 18 with the intention of driving to the White House to kill persons in power.

Xiong said that if he had not been pulled over by the cops he would've continued with his plan. Apparently, during speaking with the investigators Xiong said he used TikTok to compile a list of individuals he planned on killing including but not limited to: Bill Clinton, Barrack Obama, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and Mark Zuckerberg.

During the interview, Xiong revealed that he planned on using a "weak spot" he found during his pre-attack research by using a grappling hook to climb over the perimeter fencing.

In the conclusion of the interview, Xiong said that nothing would stop him from carrying out this plan. He said that if he was released he would resume his plan.
