This is the January 15, 2020 hearing "A Persistent and Evolving Threat: An Examination of the Financing of Domestic Terrorism and Extremism" held before the House Subcommittee on National Security, International Development and Monetary Policy of the Committee on Financial Services. From the opening statement of Emanuel Cleaver: "Domestic terror poses a persistent and evolving threat of violence and economic harm to the United States. These are not my own words. That was said by senior leaders within the FBI on the state of our country when appearing before Congress in June. The rate, pace, and lethality of domestic terrorist attacks have only grown more devastating since this testimony was delivered. [...] This hearing presents us the unique opportunity to look past the politics that surround this issue to explore how we can confront and overcome this crisis. How may we most effectively follow the money to disrupt the financing of these crimes? How can we enable law enforcement and the financial services institutions to counter domestic terror financing?" Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Lecia J. Brooks, Jared M. Maples, Mary B. McCord, Rena S. Miller, and George Selim.
