Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (Democrat-New York) took to Twitter, Wednesday, to express her frustration on journalists who revealed her address in their articles amid reports of a “domestic terrorist” planning to target her and other politicians.

“Journalists are sharing stories about where I live the same day it’s shared that myself + others were targeted by a mass shooter. All this paired w/ amplifying unvetted conspiracy theories. It’s reckless, irresponsible & puts people directly in danger. This isn’t a game,” she wrote in a tweet.

She did not, however, take names of any specific publications which were guilty of doing what she claimed.

Her tweet came days after Christopher Paul Hasson, a Coast Guard lieutenant and a self-proclaimed white nationalist from Silver Spring, Maryland, was arrested on illegal firearm and drug charges on Feb. 15. "The defendant is a domestic terrorist, bent on committing acts dangerous to human life that are intended to affect governmental conduct," officials with the U.S. Attorney's Office in Maryland said, Patch reported.

After raiding the suspect’s house, the police found 15 firearms and more than 1,000 rounds of mixed ammunition along with over 30 bottles labeled “HGH” or human growth hormone in a locked suitcase. Hasson was reportedly stockpiling them since 2017.

Also, according to court records, authorities found at least 100 pills of a drug, believed to be a narcotic called Tramadol, when they raided his workplace – something he had amassed "to increase his ability to conduct attacks."

Apart from Ocasio-Cortez, Hasson’s hit list included names like presidential candidates Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts), Cory Booker (D-New Jersey) and Kamala Harris (D-California). Other, non-political targets included MSNBC's Chris Hayes and Joe Scarborough and CNN's Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo.

Emails written by Hasson in June 2017 were recovered from his “Deletions” subfolder in which he talked about enlisting help from Russians to incite violence at Black Lives Matter protests as “Much blood will have to be spilled to get whitey off the couch.”

“Gun rights people will never rise, need religious to stand up. Please send me your violence that I may unleash it onto their heads. Guide my hate to make a lasting impression on this world. So be it. I don't know if there truly is a ‘conspiracy’ of (People) out to destroy me and mine, but there is an attack none the less. For that reason I will strike, I can't just strike to wound I must find a way to deliver a blow that cannot be shaken off,” an excerpt from one of his emails read.

He was an ardent follower of Anders Behring Breivik, a Norwegian far-right terrorist who led a 2011 attack that killed 77 Norwegians. According to authorities, Hasson read Breivik’s manifesto on how to store firearms, food, disguises and survival supplies. There are records of him visiting websites that sell firearms and tactical gear several times over the last few years, according to court documents.

A detention hearing was scheduled for Hasson at 1 p.m. EST, Thursday.
