Coast Guard Officer Pleads Guilty in Plot to Murder Liberals

HeadlineOct 04, 2019

In Maryland, a white nationalist Coast Guard lieutenant pleaded guilty Thursday to federal weapons and drugs charges, after investigators uncovered his plot to kill high-profile liberal figures, including Democratic lawmakers, media personalities and judges. Fifty-year-old Christopher Hasson was arrested with a stockpile of 15 guns and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition, after he used his work computer at the Coast Guard to read the manifestos of mass killers and to research sniper attacks. Federal prosecutors did not file terrorism charges against Hasson. He faces up to 31 years in prison at a January sentencing hearing.
