The insurrection fits the definition of ‘domestic terrorism’

Richard M. Weintraub, Esq.

After the January 6 insurrection, the U.S. still faces a growing threat from home-derived “domestic terrorism” which has no parallel nor precedence in American history.

History will be the final judge of who/why/what caused the events of January 6, 2021. 

In the final analysis, the facts/reality of the unlawful storming of the U.S. Capitol by a “mob” that day failed to stop the ceremonial counting of the electoral college vote by the U.S. Congress— nor did it stop the inauguration of the 46th President of the United States a few weeks later.

Nevertheless, the violence of that day, and the damage it inflicted on American institutions — and our reputation as the world’s symbol of freedom — has failed to unite the American People as did the foreign terrorist acts of 9/11.
