North Carolina man accused of threatening to kill Joe Biden
Oct 24 2020
Among the number of the shocking content contained within the electronic devices was a series of Internet searches for Biden's home address in DE and apparently came within four miles of the residence after purchasing an AR-15 in New Hampshire.
According to federal officials, Treisman had an interest in terrorist attacks and mass shootings and was stockpiling weapons, explosives, and ammunition. "Inside the vehicle police found about "$509,000 in US currency (believed to be [Treisman's] inheritance), books (about survival, bomb making, improvised weapons and Islam), drawings of swastikas and planes crashing into buildings", 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, according to the search warrant application. In April, he is said to have posted a meme online with the caption "should I kill joe biden?".
According to documents uncovered by the feds, Treisman created a checklist that ended with a note to "execute" Biden. The federal magistrate judge justified Treisman's detention without bail on child pornography charges because of the other evidence against him.
An officer with the U.S. Marshal's Service and the Joint Terrorism Task Force testified that a search of Treisman's electronic devices and account showed a timeline of internet searches between March and May of this year seeking information about Biden's home address, state gun laws, rifle parts and night vision goggles.
When Treisman was arrested officers found he possessed drivers licenses from three different states. It also said the search determined that Treisman had travelled to a fast-food restaurant within 4 miles (6 kilometres) of Biden's home, and also wrote a checklist note ending with the word "execute".
Investigators conducted online searches of the aliases Treisman used and discovered another post by one of the usernames expressing a desire to perform a mass shooting.
Treisman had three identification cards - from California, Washington state and Florida - and thousands of images and videos showing child pornography on his phone and laptop, according to the documents.
Officers said they found child pornography on eight electronic devices, along with pictures and posts related to his violent plans.
On April 3, 2020 he made an audio recording narrating "the ideal porn video" where he described killing two parents with a shotgun then raping and impregnating their young daughter.
The court filing said agents had asked Treisman if he had any mental health conditions and they were told he did not.
The filing states that Treisman has no previous criminal history and that his counsel told the Federal Bureau of Investigation he was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome at age 12, though he denied any having any mental health conditions in his initial interview with law enforcement.
Due to the evidence, a judge ruled that "no combination of available release conditions would reasonably assure the safety of the community, and that a preponderance of evidence establishes that no conditions would ensure Defendant's presence in court", the order reads.
Kannapolis police arrested Treisman on May 28, according to federal prosecutors.
