The DOJ arrested an 18-year-old Idaho man over the weekend after he reportedly pledged allegiance to ISIS and planned to attack churches in Coeur d’Alene.

According to police, Alexander Scott Mercurio was going to knock out his father, handcuff him and take his firearms to go kill people at nearby churches.

When law enforcement searched Mercurio’s home, they found a “metal pipe, handcuffs, folding saw, head coverings, two canisters of butane fuel, and [a] machete.”

Unknowingly speaking with an undercover FBI agent, Mercurio allegedly said he previously “drank the Kool-aid of white supremacy” but found “more purpose” in joining ISIS.

Biden Attorney General Merrick Garland commented on the arrest, saying, “Thanks to the investigative efforts of the FBI, the defendant was taken into custody before he could act, and he is now charged with attempting to support ISIS’s mission of terror and violence. The Justice Department will continue to relentlessly pursue, disrupt, and hold accountable those who would commit acts of terrorism against the people and interests of the United States.”

Of course, FBI informants were the ones who convinced Mercurio to plan the terror attack in the first place and they also allegedly provided him with the ISIS flag he posed with.
