Christopher Paul Hasson dreamed of killing ‘every last person’
A U.S. Coast Guard Lieutenant was arrested after investigators claimed he was planning a domestic terror attack and had a ‘hit-list’ that included prominent Democrats and media figures. Christopher Paul Hasson is due in court on Thursday in Maryland after he was arrested on gun and drug charges last week. Prosecutors said that Hasson, a 49-year-old who lives in a basement apartment in Maryland, espoused extremist views for years.Court papers detail a June 2017 draft email in which Hasson described an ‘interesting idea’ that included ‘biological attacks followed by attack on food supply.’Federal agents found 15 firearms and over 1,000 rounds of ammunition when Hasson was arrested.Prosecutors allege that he had compiled a list of prominent congressional Democrats, activists, and media commentators.
Hasson’s attorney declined to comment on Wednesday. His arrest was first noted by researchers from George Washington University.
