(KWLM/Washington, DC) — Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar is on the hit list of a Coast Guard officer arrested in an alleged domestic terrorism investigation.
F-B-I agents arrested Christopher Paul Hasson, a self-proclaimed white nationalist, after seizing a stockpile of weapons from his home in Maryland. Court documents say Hasson planned to launch a terror attack and murder liberal politicians and journalists.
Omar and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi were reportedly on his target list.
The Minnesota Democrat said in a statement, “I’m thankful to the authorities who worked on this case and grateful no one was hurt. As a nation, we must confront the alarming rise in violent extremism.” Hasson is due in federal court today (Thursday) for a detention hearing.
