Coast Guard Officer Accused Of Terrorist Plot Against MSNBC, CNN Anchors, Dem Politicians & Others


Erik Pedersen and Lisa de Moraes
February 20, 2019 3:36PM PST


UPDATED with Anderson Cooper remarks: A Coast Guard officer stationed in Washington, D.C., stands accused of plotting a mass terrorist attack whose intended victims include prominent journalists at MSNBC and CNN and Democratic politicians.

“For now, the suspect is being held only on weapons and drug charges, but at the very top of their detention memo filied today with the U.S. District Court in Maryland, prosecutors wrote: “The defendant intends to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country.”

Lt. Christopher Hasson, 49, was arrested last week at his home in Silver Spring, MD. The court documents say authorites found a hit list on his computer that named prominent media personalities including CNN’s Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo and Van Jones and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, Chris Hayes and Ari Melber.

Also named were politicians including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi; Sens. Chuck Schumer, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Tim Kaine, Kirsten Gillibrand and Richard Blumenthal; Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Maxine Waters, Ilhan Omar and Sheila Jackson Lee; ex-Rep. Beto O’Rourke; and former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.



We are very grateful to the dedicated and skillful law enforce officials who discovered this dangerous plot and thank them,” CNN said in a statement. “Their work undoubtedly saved many lives.” Deadline also has reached out to MSNBC for comment.

(Edited for compliance)

Ahead of his CNN show tonight, Cuomo told Cooper: “This is scary. This is something that the people who get named, we have to deal with, especially with our family because while we accept it as just the nature of the world we live in these days.”

Authorities also seized at least 15 weapons — rifles, pistols and shotguns — and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition from the basement of Hasson’s home. They said he had been stockpiling arms for two years. See the photo above.

In the court filing, U.S. Attorney Robert Hur said the current weapons charges against Hasson, who the feds describe as a white supramacist and former Marine, are “the proverbial tip of the iceberg. The defendant is a domestic terrorist, bent on committing acts dangerous to human life that are intended to affect government conduct.”


Prosecutor also said the suspect was inspired by the Norwigian domestic terrorist who murdered 77 people in gun and bomb attacks in July 2011. They also found a Google search on his computer for “civil war if Donald Trump impeached.”

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. I think a plague would be most successful but how do I acquire the needed/ Spanish flu, botulism, anthrax not sure yet but will find something. Interesting idea the other day. Start with bioilogical attacks followed by an attack on the food supply. …”[/color]

falloff lol Oh, wow!

You do know you are all over that "no-name celebrity" thread, right? Some of those posts you made when the Smollett story started aren't standing up too well today, are they?

lol

On the topic, glad they caught this fucker before he could carry out his plans. Hopefully he'll go away for a long, long time.

I heard his lawyers tried to lower the charge of domestic terrorist. Go figure. The guy had s hit list to kill Democrats in Congress, journalists and some media personalities. Not to mention the amount if weapons and drugs they found in his home. He is also a white supremacist and trump supporter, and threaten to kill if and have a civil war if trump is impeached. I’m glad they found the nut and took him into custody, but I’m pretty sure there’s more like him out there.


Of course there was silence from trump, GOP and many trump supporters on this, but they had no problem commenting on Jussie Smollett.

Jussie Smollett was all over the news because that is a more interesting and sensational story. Some guy getting arrested with weapons and a supposed plan is no longer much of a story. If he went through with the plan it would be a different story, like the Vegas shooter that was likely tied up with some ideology that hated Trump, he targeted a predominately MAGA crowd. Jussie went from hate crime to all the BS of him orchestrating hoax for publicity. Whereas someone arrested well how much can you report on it? From what angle and he is being charged with a crime not yet proven. Not to mention the number of death threats towards Trump, MAGA and Alex Jones that happen online and in real life daily that are just overlooked and not reported to the authorities.

What are you outraged about today? CNN has not told you yet?

Christopher Hasson, Coast Guard Officer, Plotted Attacks at His Desk, Filings Say



By Dave Philipps
Feb. 21, 2019

Sitting in an office in Coast Guard headquarters, where the mission is to ensure the safety of the nation, Lt. Christopher P. Hasson took illicit opiates and plotted terror attacks that he hoped would spark a race war, according to the authorities.

To outward appearances, the 49-year-old lieutenant was a suburban father with a desk job supplying Coast Guard ships, who was glimpsed by neighbors coming and going in uniform or walking his dogs with his wife.


But in court filings, prosecutors said he was also a “domestic terrorist” and self-described white nationalist who studied the methods of the Unabomber, the Virginia Tech gunman and other extremist killers; stockpiled guns and drugs; drew up a target list of prominent cable news journalists and Democratic politicians to be killed; and wrote, prosecutors said, of wanting “to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country.”

All these reports state he had intent to commit mass murder. Plotted all of this from his computer at work:

White supremacist Coast Guard officer who allegedly plotted mass violence imprisoned ahead of fresh charges

KATHARINE JACKSON, REUTERS February 22, 2019 at 08:57 AM
GREENBELT, Md. (Reuters) - A U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant accused of amassing a cache of weapons and plotting to attack Democratic politicians and journalists was ordered held for two weeks on Thursday while federal prosecutors consider charging him with more crimes.


Chris Hasson, 49, appeared in a burgundy jumpsuit but did not speak during a brief hearing in federal court in Greenbelt, Maryland. Prosecutors said the charges already filed against him are "just the tip of the iceberg."

"There is an intent to murder innocent civilians," U.S. Attorney Jennifer Sykes told Judge Charles Day.

Hasson is described by federal prosecutors as a "domestic terrorist" and self-described white supremacist who had a list of potential targets including House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi and MSNBC television host Joe Scarborough.

Hassan also searched the internet for where members of Congress live, and which public figures had security details, prosecutors said.”

Right from the article. Not a MAGA that is someone wanting to trigger an event to start a race war or trigger some event that would kill everyone. The problem is people are dumb and falling for all the racial division being sold to them.

Good that they’re doing a sweep. Who knows what thst nutcase could have planted at the Coast Guard HQ:


https://www.google.com/ur...6163769771

Authorities to sweep Coast Guard HQ following arrest of officer
By Sophie Tatum and Jessica Schneider, CNN


Updated 1:01 PM EST, February 22, 2019



“Washington (CNN) Law enforcement officials will conduct a "complete sweep" of Coast Guard headquarters, where a self-described white nationalist whom the government has accused of being a domestic terrorist worked, according to an internal message to workers.

The government has alleged that Lt. Christopher Paul Hasson is a self-described white supremacist and maintained a hit list of prominent Democrats and journalists, including individuals at CNN and MSNBC. Hasson is currently in federal custody on drug and gun charges.

In the internal message obtained by CNN, Coast Guard headquarters Commander Rear Adm. J.M. Vojvodich said Hasson was monitored "closely" by law enforcement inside Coast Guard headquarters during the investigation, which began last year, [
and surveillance "indicated no reason to believe (Hasson) took any actions that could threaten the workforce.

Nevertheless, as a "precaution," a sweep of headquarters will take place in addition to canine sweeps that have already occurred of the floor where Hasson worked as well as the mailroom and loading dock.

The commandant of the Coast Guard also sent an email late Thursday to members of the Coast Guard regarding the arrest of Hasson.

In it, Adm. Karl Schultz praises Coast Guard investigators and FBI for preventing a "potentially dangerous situation from escalating."

"Extremism, hate, bigotry, and advocacy of violence have no place" in the Coast Guard and anyone "espousing these behaviors" will be "held accountable," he wrote.

How odd that Trump is so silent on an alleged terrorist’s arrest

By Jennifer Rubin
February 22, 2019 at 10:15 AM



The Post reports on the arrest of Coast Guard Lt. Christopher P. Hasson, who allegedly amassed an arsenal and sought to target Democrat politicians and journalists from MSNBC and CNN:

Hasson was arrested on gun and drug charges after officials with the Coast Guard Investigative Service and agents with the FBI in Baltimore began probing activities that prosecutors said in court were linked to what they described as Hasson’s white-nationalist views. Federal law enforcement officials seized a stockpile of guns and ammunition from his basement apartment in the Maryland suburbs near Washington in the far east side of Silver Spring in Montgomery County. ...

As he built an arsenal, prosecutors contend, Hasson read manifestos by the Unabomber, the Virginia Tech shooter and the Olympic Park bomber among other domestic mass shooters, and also looked for guidance to the plot of right-wing terrorist Anders Behring Breivik, who in 2011 unleashed two attacks in Norway that killed 77 people.

Well, a successful law enforcement operation snagged a suspect allegedly bent on mass murder. President Trump surely would take credit for this, right? Actually, as of Friday morning, there has been deafening silence from the White House. Why so mum?]/b]


[b]Maybe the subject of mass murderers and the caches of weapons they are allowed to amass makes the National Rifle Association’s pet president a wee bit nervous. Call attention to the ease with which unbalanced and extremist figures get vast numbers of weapons and before you know it, Democrats will be calling for reasonable gun laws.


Too cynical an explanation? Well, perhaps Hasson is not the “right” kind of terrorist. Trump has been obsessed and willing to misread the public over and over again with the risk from foreign terrorists. Coming over the border from Mexico! (Not really.) The result of chain migration! (Actually, not.) My colleague Philip Bump reported in October 2018 after the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre:

(Edited for compliance)

For Trump, terrorism is the justification for irrational immigration policies that feed his base’s xenophobia. He stokes fear of throngs of MS-13 gang members and cites “thousands” of arrests — exaggerations, if not outright lies, he uses to try to paint “dreamers” and desperate asylum seekers as part of an undifferentiated horde of invaders.

Finally, Trump might not be keen on highlighting the Hasson case since this might be one more case — along with those of suspected Florida mail-bomber Cesar Sayoc, the accused Pittsburgh killer out to kill people he believed were assisting migrants from the caravans, and more mundane figures such as the MAGA fan who reportedly assaulted a BBC cameraman — where someone seemed to take vilification of the media to heart. The constant drumbeat of “enemy of the people”

I believe he's silent for two reasons: First: Dude was a MEGA-MAGA fan, ("makes me look bad"). Two: Proabably wouldn't care if his political enemies were taken out. Makes his life that much easier.
