A hit list compiled by alleged right-wing “domestic terrorist” Christopher Paul Hasson, a Coast Guard lieutenant, included Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, court documents show.

Hasson, an avowed white nationalist apparently inspired by the Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik, was arrested February 15 on gun and drug charges. But authorities say Hasson was also concocting a plan to kill people perceived as prominent liberal figures. News of the disturbing case was first reported by Seamus Hughes, deputy director of the Program on Extremism at George Washington University.

At a hearing Thursday, a judge ordered that Hasson be held for 14 days, giving prosecutors time to file additional charges.

A detention memo for Hasson, a 49-year-old living in Maryland and stationed at the Coast Guard’s Washington headquarters, described him as “a domestic terrorist bent on committing acts dangerous to human life.” It outlined how he amassed a small arsenal of weapons, obtained a stockpile of human growth hormone and the opioid Tramadol, obsessively read the extremist manifesto penned by Breivik, and created a list of potential targets in politics and media, including Warren and other Democratic presidential hopefuls, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, and TV personalities Joe Scarborough and Van Jones.

Hasson referred to Warren in his spreadsheet as “poca warren,” a reference to Trump’s “Pocahontas” nickname for the senator, it says.

Records from his computer show internet searches that included “most liberal senators,” “where do most senators live in dc,” “do senators have ss [secret service] protection,” and “are supreme court justices protected,” the document says. He also allegedly wrote in a draft email that he was “dreaming of a way to kill almost every last person on the earth,” and had written a draft message to neo-Nazi figure about his belief in the need for “focused violence” and desire to find a “white homeland.”
