Details of Alleged Tenn. Assassination Plot
Here are more details of the arrests in Tennessee today.
Agents seized a rifle, a sawed-off shotgun and three pistols from the men when they were arrested. Authorities alleged the two men were preparing to break into a gun shop to steal more.
Here is the Affidavit in support of the Complaint against Daniel Cowart and Paul Schesselman which has been unsealed.
The Affidavit says both Cowart and his alleged partner Schlesselman have confessed their plan and provided details.
Another person mentioned is Cowart's friend, a woman named Danni Stafford. Since she wasn't charged, I'm assuming she's the one who dropped the dime on the two guys. According to the complaint, she agreed to assist them in a home robbery by driving the car. She drove them to the house the pair were going to rob and then drove to a waiting area. A dog and two cars scared the guys off and they called her to come back and get them. She did, they all left, and she went home.
