This is the May 26, 2021 hearing on "Confronting Violent White Supremacy (Part V): Examining the Rise of Militia Extremism" held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties of the Committee on Oversight and Reform. From the opening statement of Jamie Raskin: "In this hearing, we are going to focus a spotlight on the organized paramilitary groups, such as the Oath Keepers and the Three Percenters, that helped to plan the violence that was at the center of the insurrection and lent military-grade tactical knowledge and strategies to the mob violence that engulfed us in Congress. Both of these groups, the Oath Keepers and Three Percenters, are part of the expanding network of militia violent extremists referred to in Federal law enforcement as MVEs, militia violent extremists, that have become the nationwide organizational backbone of far-right violent extremism." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Mary McCord, Gurbir Grewal, Peter Simi, and Michael Gonzalez.
