According to a complaint, Duong told both a D.C. undercover police officer and an FBI undercover agent that he was associated with "loosely affiliated group of like minded individuals," which he compared to a known militia group in Northern Virginia. He noted, however, that his group operated with more secrecy.

Duong disclosed to the FBI agent that while he was in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, he dressed in black in order to appear to be what he described as an Antifa member.
In addition, he wore two masks – including what he described as a "Japanese style" mask.
During a February 12 meeting that Duong described as a "Bible study" that included people from his group, as well as the undercover agent, he reportedly discussed forming a secessionist "state of Appalachia."
At the same meeting, Duong had a number of firearms – including an AK-47 – on his bed in his house.
At another meeting, the FBI agent said, Duong brought a speaker who he described as his "three percenter contact."
The complaint details a number of instances in which the agent and Duong discussed testing Molotov cocktails. It also explains that he had components in his possession that could be used to make Molotov cocktails, and ways in which he thought he could improve on them.
