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.

So they will call us white nationalits like every other day.
the list is not a bad start... lol
When does the trial for “MAGA Bomber” Cesar Sayoc start?
Do you know how much I don’t believe anything about this case.
The feds lie
I don't buy a word of it until I hear it from REPUTABLE sources.
My only concern with that list is if the "many others" doesn't include the vast number of names of communist politicians and media personnel that hopefully were on the rest of the list...
They've been waiting a long time to classify something as an act of domestic terrorism... Clearly their plan is to find a way to get all the bad news for, and about, the demonrats off the front page... Might be Rosenstein's going away gift to the deep state...
He called himself a white nationalist skin head
He was in the Marines before that. His son was in the Marines as well.
Which begs the question, How long were the leftists sitting on this news, waiting for the best time to spring it? Certainly a good time to do so would be right in the middle of a highly embarrassing scandal involving a faked attack by alleged Trump supporters in Chicago.
Now they can breathe a sigh of relief as they sweep the scandal under the rug while
He fancies himself a Pootiphille / russiabot
Yet claims to support trump.
He’s a made to order stereotypical trump supporter- but only by the liberal definition of what a trump supporter is.
Wonder how he felt about Trump admin’s wasting of the 300 Russians in Syria.
... while claiming that they were right all along, because Trump really DID inspire right wing terrorist attacks, and the only minor error in their narrative was that the right wing terrorist was not the Nigerian personal trainer, but rather a USCG Lt. So there!
That crap is USELESS!!!
It wouldnt help relieve the pain from a hangnail.
Several things don’t make sense and seem too “easy”. First off, I want a picture. Why no picture so you can gloat about how great the FBI is. Second, there is no reason given for the arrest. Was an attack imminent? Had he issued a threat to someone? They don’t say. What they say is he had a list and mentioned something about illegal impeachment of Trump. This whole story sounds like it’s written by Jussie Smollett. Everything is too obvious. And its coming from the main stream media who gave legitimacy to Jussie, Indian dude, and a bunch of other hoaxers. Too many questions about the story and the story teller.
Antisemitic yet claims to support Trump whose family is in part Jewish.
Writes draft letter to n unnamed “neonazi leader” about 7 weeks after Charlottesville who his own incarcerated skinhead friend warned him was an informant?
Does Tramadol and human growth hormone screw with the brain because writing to an informant you’ve been warned about ahead of time is really stupid.
Like they used to say to Trump “don’t fire Sessions, don’t fire Mueller, don’t build the Wall on your own......or your critics will go wild.”
So he didn’t and his critics went wild.
They are DHS now.
I told the doc I might as well take a tic tac. At least than I would have fresh breath.
He laughed and gave me a script for Norco. The guys working on my shoulder with a jackhammer joined a union and started slacking.
It made the three month wait until surgery almost bearable.
With the new regs he probably could not do that now days.
