Seamus Hughes of the George Washington Program on Extremism tweeted Wednesday that a U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant was arrested on drugs and weapons charges. He noted that it seemed like an everyday event until court documents were published.
Christopher Paul Hasson was reportedly in contact with white supremacists and was developing a “hit list” of liberal senators he was aiming to attack.
“The defendant intends to murder innocent civilians rarely seen in this country,” prosecutors said at the top of their documents.
A LT in the US Coast Guard was arrested this week for drug and gun charges. It looked like a run of the mill case until the detention memo filed yesterday. He had a hit list, contacts with white supremacists, guns, and, again, was an Coastie assigned to HQ.
