Blumenthal among targets of white supremacist terrorist

Arrested Coast Guard lieutenant was a white supremacist terrorist with a hit list of top Democratic officials and media figures prosecutors

Last Friday, police apprehended Christopher Paul Hasson, a US Coast Guard lieutenant they say was a "domestic terrorist" and self-identified white supremacist, with a laundry list of politicians he meant to target.

Court papers detail a June 2017 draft email in which he wrote that he was "dreaming of a way to kill nearly every last person on the earth" and pondering how to acquire anthrax and toxins to create botulism or a deadly influenza.

Anchors at CNN and MSNBC and prominent Democrats were targeted for attack by a Coast Guard lieutenant arrested Friday on a firearms charge, according to federal prosecutors in Maryland.

Last February, Hasson searched the internet for the "most liberal senators" and also asked, "Do senators have ss (Secret Service) protection" and "Are supreme court justices protected", according to the court filing.

Hur's statement was: "The current charges, however, are the proverbial tip of the iceberg". Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

'The defendant is a domestic terrorist.'bent, on committing acts unsafe to human life that are meant to affect governmental conduct, ' a court filing stated according to The Washington Post.

Hur also cited a nearly two-year-old unsent email on the suspect's computer that said (all sic): "I am dreaming of a way to kill almost every last person on the earth".

At least 15 firearms and over 1,000 rounds of ammunition were seized during Hasson's arrest.

Hasson is due back in US District Court in Greenbelt, Maryland, at 1 p.m. on Thursday.

Prosecutors pointedly said the letter was crafted seven weeks after the August 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The email details possible biological weapons attacks with Spanish flu, botulism and anthrax, which would then be followed by an attack on the food supply, according to the court documents. However, Hasson's public defender argued that the number of firearms found in Hasson's apartment is "modest, at best" for many gun collectors in other parts of the country.

He has been at headquarters in Washington since 2016, but no longer works for the agency, according to court filings and a Coast Guard spokesman.

Among the details are that Lt. Hasson allegedly wrote a letter to a "known American neo-Nazi leader" saying he himself has been a "White Nationalist" for more than 30 years, and has been an advocate of "a little focused violence" to further creation of a white homeland.

Investigators found weapons at Hasson's Maryland apartment, as well as a stockpile of human growth hormone, which he was allegedly planning to use to keep his stamina up during attacks he was planning. "He must be detained pending trial", prosecutors said in a court filing.

"The government hasn't met its burden", Day said, arguing that the weapons and drug charges that Hasson now faces don't normally "carry with it the presumption of detention".

The document does not state what turn authorities on to Hasson's activities. He also had ordered thousands of Tramadol pills, a painkiller, since 2016, the government said. There are people in life who are not 100 percenters.

"We are aware of the offensive video on twitter - the Coast Guard has identified the member and removed him from the response", the service said at the time in a tweet.
