In another voicemail, he allegedly said that his auto looked as though Timothy McVeigh or Eric Rudolph - two convicted domestic terrorists - were going on a camping trip.

Agreeing to talk to police in his hotel room, Moles told officers about the guns, saying that he brought the rifle for a friend to "trick out" for his son, according to the court document.

A Pennsylvania man arrested at Trump International Hotel in downtown Washington after a military-style rifle was found in his vehicle is scheduled to face a USA magistrate Friday afternoon on a federal firearms charge punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

A District of Columbia Superior Court judge released 43-year-old Bryan Moles Thursday on the condition that he stay away from the Trump Hotel and the White House and that he temporarily give up access to weapons at his home in Pennsylvania.

He is expected to make an initial court appearance Thursday afternoon.

According to documents filed Thursday, Bryan Moles also said he was a "refugee intent on bringing down big pharmacy and big business medicine". The Pennsylvania doctor is reportedly a recovering alcoholic and marijuana addict, the Daily Mail reports.

His hometown of Edinboro is about 350 miles from Washington.

Instead, he said he self-medicates with by smoking marijuana, which police found along with a vape in his bathroom. Moles allegedly said he'd emptied his account - leaving just $4.19, relating to the date of the Oklahoma City Bombing by McVeigh on April 19, 1995, killing 168.

The judge said that he wouldn't go against the agreement and told Moles: "I'm going to release you".

At the scene, police found a Glock 23 pistol and a Carbon Bushmaster assault rifle inside of Moles' care-one of the weapons was in plain view and the other was in the glove compartment.

Staff at the Trump International Hotel told police officers that when Moles arrived at the hotel, he told a valet to secure his auto because he had two firearms, according to the charging documents.

Secret Service Agent Brian Ebert, head of the Washington field office, described the investigation as "new and ongoing".

Ironically, the doctor's Facebook page features both photos and comments which appear to indicate his support for Donald Trump. On Friday, he posted a question: "If you had to choose between a Hilton Hotel and a Trump hotel, which would you choose and why?"

When a commenter replied, "Trump all the way". Lisa DellaRatta, a nurse practitioner in Florida, said she's known him for more than 25 years and used to live with him.

Moles said he will seek mental health treatment from the Department of Veterans Affairs in Atlanta.

She said Moles "cannot be a more stand-up man". His lawyer, Eugene Ohm, told the judge that Moles posed no flight risk or danger to the community, that his guns were legally registered in Pennsylvania, and that Moles came to DC unaware of local gun laws.

He had worked at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, which said in a statement that he had previously been put on administrative leave.
