This is the February 25, 2021 virtual hearing on "Dollars Against Democracy: Domestic Terrorist Financing in the Aftermath of Insurrection," held before the House Subcommittee on National Security, International Development and Monetary Policy of the Committee on Financial Services. From the opening statement of Jim A. Himes: "As we heard from Merrick Garland during his confirmation hearing earlier this week, the country faces a, 'more dangerous period in the wake of January 6th than we did after the Oklahoma City bombing, the single deadliest act of domestic terrorism in American history.' This threat is real and it is, therefore, incumbent on all of us on this subcommittee to look at the ways that these extremist groups fund not only their violent activities, but their recruitment and radicalization efforts as well. [...] In today's hearing, I want us to focus on three important areas. First, to better understand how these groups are raising money. [...] Second, to give serious thought to where our efforts on disruption are best spent. [...] Third, we need to be conscientiously mindful of the civil liberties concerns at play here." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Iman Boukadoum, Lecia Brooks, Daveed Gartenstein-Ross, Daniel L. Glaser, and Daniel Rogers.
