The FBI and US Prosecutor announced that two men were busted in North Carolina and Maryland after they were linked to assassination and kidnapping plots against Presidential Nominee Joe Biden.
The more dangerous incident was planned by Alexander Hillel Treisman whose van was filled with weapons and explosives. Treisman was making threatening social media posts against Biden.
The man was frequenting a restaurant only four miles away from his target’s North Carolina home. He had drawings of bombing planes and survival books as well as $500,000 in cash.
The other suspect is James Dale Reed from Frederick, Maryland. According to the state’s authorities, Reed was arrested Wednesday after leaving graphic and threatening notes at his neighbor’s home because he supported Democrats.
“We have a list of homes and addresses by your election signs. We are the ones with those scary guns, we are the ones your children have nightmares about,” Reed’s chilling note read.
He also detailed the assassination of “Grandpa Biden” and sodomizing of Harris. Reed allegedly expressed his envy to watch their execution on TV.
“We take these types of threats extremely seriously,” AG Robert K. Hur said. “Such threats to commit violence are illegal and have no place in our democracy, and we will hold accountable those who make them.”
