Joseph D. Jones and Edward Schimenti allegedly pledged allegiance to ISIS and advocated for the terrorist group on social media. In the fall of 2015, Jones and Schimenti befriended two FBI undercover agents and an informant. They believed the three men were fellow ISIS devotees.

They provided the informant with mobile phones and drove him to O’Hare International Airport in Chicago.
