Coast Guard Lieutenant Accused of Terrorist Plot Ordered to Pretrial Confinement | Military.com

A Coast Guard officer accused of compiling a target list of Democratic presidential candidates and media personalities amid threats of mass violence will remain behind bars while his case moves forward, a U.S. District Court judge ruled Thursday.

Lt. Christopher Paul Hasson was arrested Feb. 15 on drug and weapons possession charges, but a document filed by a U.S. attorney allege a much more far-reaching pattern of sinister activity, including plans to commit mass murder to further a neo-Nazi and white nationalist agenda.

In the Greenbelt location of U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, U.S. Magistrate Judge Charles Day granted a detention order for Hasson.
