The FBI arrested Coast Guard lieutenant Christopher Paul Hasson for plotting to kill a number of prominent Democratic politicians, journalists, and judges in a court filing on Tuesday.

ABC News’ Pierre Thomas reported that FBI officials are calling this case “truly alarming,” and are making an urgent appeal in court on Thursday that Hasson remains behind bars.

“This morning, Coast Guard lieutenant Christopher Paul Hasson will appear in court accused of plotting mass murder,” Thomas reported.

Thomas reported that the FBI is accusing Hasson of stockpiling weapons and 1,000 bullets in a Maryland apartment.

Hasson’s stockpiling of weapons was, “they believe, possibly as part of a dream to quote, ‘mured innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country,'” Thomas said. “The FBI claims Hasson is a white nationalist, bluntly calling him a domestic terrorist.”

Hasson had a possible “hit list,” which included Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, according to Thomas.
