Coast Guard Officer Pleads Not Guilty To Gun, Drug Charges

The U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant authorities say was stockpiling weapons in a plot "to murder innocent civilians"  was arraigned  in a Maryland federal court Monday.

Christopher Hasson pleaded not guilty to  drug and weapons charges , including unlawful possession of unregistered silencers and possession of 17 firearms by an unlawful user and addict of a controlled substance.

If convicted on all charges, Hasson faces up to 31 years in prison.

According  to court documents  filed by prosecutors last month, Hasson, who self-identified as a white nationalist, had compiled a list of prominent Democrats and journalists to target.

Names on that alleged hit list included House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, and MSNBC's Joe Scarborough.

Although prosecutors called Hasson a "domestic terrorist" in those court documents, they have not charged him with any terrorism-related counts.
