Alexander Hillel Treisman possibly planned to assassinate Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, according to the records. Treisman traveled to within four miles of Biden’s home in Delaware in May, around the time the suspect bought an AR-15 rifle, and wrote a checklist note ending with the word “execute,” a federal magistrate judge said in a court order. Alexander Hillel Treisman was arrested in North Carolina in May after police discovered his van along with five guns, explosives and more than $500,000 in cash. The 19-year-old was possibly planning to assassinate former vice president and presidential candidate Joe Biden, court records show.Treisman traveled to within four miles of the Democratic presidential nominee’s home in Delaware earlier in May, within a month or so of the man buying an AR-15 rifle in New Hampshire, according to the records. Treisman had also written a checklist note ending with the word “execute,” a federal magistrate judge said in a court order justifying the man’s detention without bail on child pornography charges. “Should I kill joe biden?” Treisman posted on the meme-sharing platform iFunny on April 15, the court order said. Treisman was indicted in late September in federal court in the Middle District of North Carolina on charges of possessing and transmitting child pornography.
His actions regarding Biden and other evidence against him were cited as reasons for his pretrial detention by the judge in an order signed Oct. 6. “A timeline of internet searches conducted by Defendant between March and May 2020 seeking information about Joe Biden’s home address, state gun laws, rifle parts, and night vision goggles, along with actions taken by Defendant, including posting the above-mentioned meme about killing Joe Biden, purchasing an AR-15 in New Hampshire, traveling to a Wendy’s within 4 miles of Joe Biden’s home, and writing a checklist note ending with ‘execute,’ ” the order said. While Treisman has no prior criminal history, the judge concluded 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.”
