Feds Say They Have Recordings Of Ohio Man Charged In U.S. Capitol Threat

Federal prosecutors say they have video and audiotapes of a southwest Ohio man meeting with a confidential informant in a plot to attack the U.S. Capitol. Prosecutors on Tuesday made the disclosure during a hearing to discuss handling classified information in the case of 20-year-old Christopher Lee Cornell. Prosecutors say the recorded meetings between Cornell and the informant happened over a six-day period. Cornell has pleaded not guilty to multiple charges. His father says Cornell pledged his allegiance to ISIS last summer, and was coerced by a "snitch" who was trying to improve his own legal situation.
