The Coast Guard lieutenant accused of stockpiling weapons and illegal drugs will be released on bail, a federal judge ruled Thursday afternoon.

Christopher Hasson is facing weapons and drug charges. Prosecutors said he was planning a domestic terror attack targeting Democratic politicians and journalists.

Attorneys for Hasson argue their client should get a new hearing because he is not facing any terror-related charges.

A hearing on when, where and how Hasson will be released will be scheduled.

This report will be updated.
