Here’s all the shit we couldn’t cover today:

  • A United States Coast Guard lieutenant arrested on drug and weapons charges also had a hit list of Democratic politicians and news personalities he wanted to kill. The FBI arrested Christopher Paul Hasson, a self-described white nationalist who, according to court documents, advocated the use of violence to establish a “white homeland.” His hit list included Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Maxine Waters, Cory Booker, and Kirsten Gillibrand as well as MSNBC’s Chris Hayes and CNN’s Don Lemon, among others. This is a developing story. [Washington Post]
  • Roger Stone might go to jail after posting a photo of the judge overseeing his case with what appear to be crosshairs next to her head. Whoops! [Politico]

  • Space Force is skinny now. [Politico]
