Testimony has begun at the sentencing of a young Bethesda man for possessing bomb-making chemicals, a fake CIA badge and a map of Camp David.

Prosecutors said Thursday in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt that they likely will address the claim they made earlier, that McKenzie-Gude was plotting in 2008 to kill President Obama when he was still a presidential candidate.

FBI Supervisory Special Agent Richard Stryker took the stand and identified items seized from McKenzie-Gude’s home, including include wires, timers and chemicals Agent Stryker said could be used to create an improvised explosive device.

Authorities said McKenzie-Gude had a fake CIA badge and a map of Camp David with markings for the presidential motorcade route.

McKenzie-Gude’s attorney says his client never intended to hurt anyone.
