A Coast Guard lieutenant arrested last Friday on gun and drug charges allegedly wanted to conduct a terror plot on news networks and select Democrats, authorities say.
Christopher Paul Hasson, 49, is alleged to be a white supremacist who had a hit list that included prominent politicians such as Cory Booker and Kamala Harris and several journalists from CNN and MSNBC.
The hit list also included Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, of New York, Sens. Chuck Schumer of New York, Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas — as well as CNN journalists Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo and Van Jones and MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Ari Melber and Joe Scarborough.
“The defendant is a domestic terrorist, bent on committing acts dangerous to human life that are intended to affect governmental conduct,” prosecutors wrote.
