In other words, Christopher Hasson will now only be tried for drug and weapons charges and will NOT face charges of domestic terrorism. Worse? He is out of custody.
But according to U.S. Attorney and federal prosecutor Robert Hur: ““The defendant intends to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country.”
Real comforting, huh?
According to the FBI, Hasson had a detailed “hit list” on his computer while naming the following: Don Lemon (CNN), Chris Cuomo (CNN), Van Jones (CNN), Joe Scarborough (MSNBC), Ari Melber (MSNBC), and Chris Hayes also from MSNBC.
Also making the list were the following: Also named were 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.
One cannot escape noticing how each of these media personalities and politicians are considered liberal. Of course, it does not help that Trump – the man with the biggest bully pulpit in this nation – has and continues to refer to the media as ‘fake news’ or worse, ‘the enemy of the people,’ and has denigrated Democrats with his rhetoric.
Also making Hasson’s list were two unnamed Supreme Court Justices.
Authorities have seized “at least 15 weapons – rifles, pistols, and shotguns – and more than 1000 rounds of ammunition” from Hasson’s home.
Inspired by a Norwegian domestic terrorist who successfully murdered 77 citizens in Norway utilizing gun and bomb attacks, authorities also found Hasson had searched on Google “civil war if Donald Trump is impeached.”
Also located on Hasson’s computer was an older and unsent email where he states: ““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. …”
Authorities located the threats posed by Hasson as they were executing a search warrant for opioid purchases made by him via the internet.
This is the second incident where journalists and politicians of liberal persuasion have been faced with a threat of this magnitude, with the first incident including the receipt of pipe bombs in the mail.
Had this person been a Muslim, you can be guaranteed the media would be covering this relentlessly. You can also be guaranteed that the Mr. Trump would be mentioning his name non-stop at rallies, yet, the man has stated the following about the arrest: “It’s a very sad thing when a think like that happens.”
When asked whether his language contributed to the White Supremacist’s act, Trump stated, “No I don’t. I think my language is very nice.”
I imagine we all are supposed to ignore the obvious correlation between Trump’s words and these sort of acts taking place, huh? After all, “there are very fine people” – according to Trump – on both sides.”
While that won’t help any of us sleep better at night, perhaps Mr. Trump is as he continues sowing seeds of discord.
Yes, the nation was divided under the Obama administration, but that was due to conservative’s inability to accept him as the Commander-In-Chief despite his superiority to Mr. Trump.
