This is the March 24, 2021 hearing on "State and Local Responses to Domestic Terrorism: The Attack on the U.S. Capitol and Beyond," held before the House Subcommittee on Intelligence and Counterterrorism of the Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Elissa Slotkin: "[T]his subcommittee is charged with combatting domestic terrorism and violent extremism, among other things, and we are united by the conviction that we simply cannot allow violence to be normalized as part of our politics. But we have to acknowledge that we have allowed these monstrous acts, past acts of mass violence to become normalized as part of our society. While the investigations are on-going, we cannot ignore the anguish of our Asian-American communities that they are feeling right now. Nor can we deny the intelligence community's warning, just last week, that lone-wolf actors, driven by hate for swaths of our fellow citizens, pose a growing threat of 'mass casualty attacks,' like the ones we have just seen against innocent Americans here at home. There is nothing political about protecting Americans from violence in our communities, and I am determined to work together with each and every Member of the subcommittee, regardless of party, to do just that." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Dana Nessel, Aaron D. Ford, and John T. Chisholm.
