Posted on 02/20/2019 3:11:56 PM PST by Hojczyk
A Coast Guard lieutenant assigned to the service's headquarters in Washington, D.C., has been arrested on drug and gun possession charges, and is accused of plans to "murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country," according to documents filed in Maryland District Court.
Lt. Christopher Paul Hasson, an acquisitions officer for the National Security Cutter Acquisition Program, was arrested Feb. 15 and charged with possession of a firearm and ammunition by an unlawful user or addict of controlled substances, and possession of Tramadol, a Schedule IV pain medication.
A motion for detention pending trial, filed by U.S. Attorney Robert K. Hur, paints a much more menacing portrait of Hasson's crimes and planned crimes.
"The current charges, however, are the proverbial tip of the iceberg," Hur wrote. "The defendant is a domestic terrorist, bent on committing acts dangerous to human life that are intended to affect government conduct."
Hur cited a draft email written by Hasson in June 2017 in which he said he was "dreaming of a way to kill almost every last person on the earth" using a "Spanish flu, botulism, anthrax" or some other mass toxin.
Another draft letter to a "known American neo-Nazi leader" identified Hasson as a white nationalist looking for an opportunity for "a little focused violence" to establish racial supremacy.
When Hasson was arrested in Silver Spring, Maryland, earlier this month, the document states, law enforcement agents found 15 firearms, including shotguns, rifles and handguns, and "conservatively, over 1,000 rounds of mixed ammunition."
A list of potential targets allegedly compiled by Hasson in January included "prominent Democratic congressional leaders, activists, political organizations, and MSNBC and CNN media personalities" including TV host Chris Hayes; House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California; Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Virginia; Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-New York; and many others.

The Coast Guard is military.
Firing squad at dawn.
*Then maybe a fair military court martial*
yeah, how convenient. Maybe because for a false flag to work, the evidence needs to be indisputable?
Silver Spring, MD: Well known suburban beltway hotbed of violent white nationalists. I’m near certain he was egged on by an FBI informant. That fact won’t come out until much later, of course, and won’t be widely reported.
They sure checked all the right boxes. White nationalist, targeting only democrats, tv personalities and activists. Geez the only thing they didnt say was that he was arrested wearing a MAGA hat.
I have a feeling the propaganda services (”MSM”) will beat this story into butter by whipping it again and again on every show.
Perfect propaganda patsy: Trump inspired, Trump activated, Trump dog whistled nutjob represents all the conservatives in America.
All of us may suffer because one man’s mental illness.
Actually the Coast Guard is part if the DHS. But yeah, if true he needs to be maxed out.
I don’t watch television, but my wife does. I walked by and they had some press conference with Schumer and Pelosi.
Could it be? Have they actually found a living, breathing White Supremacist?
already prominent on news bulletins in Australia and, no doubt, the rest of the world. mind you, haven’t heard Smollett on the news in days, since the hoax has been exposed, in fact.
on Reddit someone claiming this was the first report. funny how Geo Washington Uni is involved:
February 20, 2019 5:37 pm: Global News Canada: U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant allegedly plotted mass terror attack targeting Democrats, journalists
By Rahul Kalvapalle
Lt. Christopher Paul Hasson stockpiled weapons and maintained a hit-list of people he wanted to kill, according to court documents shared with Global News by researchers at George Washington Universitys Program on Extremism, who first noted his case...
Usually the FBI finds guys who are borderline retarded for their entrapment schemes. This guy was an officer in the Coast Guard.
Not that this means anything. Lord knows I've met some stupid officers in the Navy. Sometimes they just slip through.
OVER 100O ROUNDS OF AMMO? he wasn’t preparing to do anything..
Main stream media would kill for a picture of this guy in a MAGA hat.
guess no-one will be available for comment today! lol.

Elkton, MD takes the cake.
Used to go drag racing in Cecil County...
or he's just stupid..
Maybe 60-75 rounds per gun? Not a lot for practice...
We buy 5000 rounds to host a BSA rifle event. It’s nothing.
The Coast Guard is extremely selective and I don’t know how a guy like this got past them?
Yeah amazing. Almost like they have guys like this ready to go when needed.
“will bet my house this is an FBI informant entrapment special.”
I could never figure out why Randy Weaver delivered an actual sawed-off shotgun to an entrapment scheme... Rather than a pack-o-hacksaw blades. But as posted above, irrational people do irrational things because they are irrational. And I guess there is just no figuring out why... ever
