February 7, 2023

The founder of an extreme neo-Nazi group and his girlfriend have been charged with plotting to attack several Maryland power stations. Brandon Russel, 27, the founder of the neo-Nazi group Atomwaffen, and Sarah Clendaniel, 34, are alleged to have planned to shoot five electrical substations in the Baltimore area, the Washington Post reported. If convicted, the pair face up to 20 years in prison. “Together, we are using every legal means necessary to keep Marylanders safe and to disrupt hate-fueled violence,” U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland Erek Barron said in a speech thanking law enforcement for uncovering the plot.
