The documents indicate that the January 2015 arrest of Christopher Cornell, who was accused of plotting to attack the U.S. Capitol in support of ISIS and later pleaded guilty to charges, was among factors that prompted Abdulkader to change his plans about traveling and focus on domestic targets.Investigators say the 22-year-old Abdulkader communicated with a member of ISIS and plotted to abduct and kill a military employee and attack a police station that wasn't identified.In a document filed in court, Marc Sageman argues that the FBI's use of that confidential source gave Abdulkader means to commit an attack and that he wasn't enabled to carry out without the government's involvement.
