ABSTRACT

Countering Domestic Terrorism: Examining the Evolving Threat, Hearing Before the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, United States Senate, One Hundred Sixteenth Congress, First Session, September 25, 2019   [open pdf - 8MB]

This is the September 25, 2019 hearing "Countering Domestic Terrorism: Examining the Evolving Threat" held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. From the Opening Statement of Ron Johnson: "Unfortunately, the increase in domestic attacks has kept our Nation on edge and forced a re-evaluation of how law enforcement can and should deal with different kinds of threats. In May, Ranking Member Peters and I sent letters to the Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Department of Justice (DOJ) requesting basic information about their efforts to track, counter, and prevent all forms of domestic terrorism. From the outset of our inquiry, it has been clear that there is a lack of consistent and reliable data concerning domestic terrorism. A quick little side note. It is not an easy issue. How do you find these things? How do you track these things? I think that will be coming out, but, again, that is what we are trying to do, potentially in a piece of legislation to codify this." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: William Braniff, Clinton Watts, Robert M. Chesney, and George Selim.
