An FBI informant provided screenshots of a pro-ISIS Facebook account operated by Houcine Bechir Ghoul. The FBI discovered a pro-ISIS Twitter account that Ghoul operated. Ghoul boasted about ISIS to a second FBI informant, telling him: "God willing, I shall be with them soon." Ghoul was charged with making false statements to obtain citizenship, including by claiming that he was not associated with a terrorist organization. He was also charged with underreporting his taxable income for tax years 2015 and 2016 by more than $70,000.
