Intelligence report: Capitol riot has emboldened domestic extremists who now pose 'greatest domestic

terrorism threats in 2021'

The insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last week will likely spur domestic extremists to carry out more violent attacks, according to a government intelligence bulletin obtained by Yahoo News.

The Joint Intelligence Bulletin, a product of the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI and National Counterterrorism Center, uses stark language not previously seen in similar government warnings, such as blaming violence on “false narratives” that the 2020 presidential election “was illegitimate, or fraudulent, and the subsequent belief its results should be contested or unrecognized.”

The document details the range of “domestic violent extremists” at the Capitol on Jan. 6, when a pro-Trump mob stormed the building while Congress counted Electoral College votes, forcing the legislators to evacuate the building. Rioters smashed windows, assaulted Capitol Police officers and trespassed in lawmakers’ offices, including the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The attack left at least five people dead. Law enforcement found multiple explosive devices in the area.

The attack, the report said, is likely part of an ongoing trend in which extremists use demonstrations to carry out ideologically motivated violence.

1. I think rather than attacking state and federal capitol buildings they will attack other

government buildings and commercial buildings that don't have the security.

2. This is what happens when you let them walk away.

Cops, military, citizens, and forgein adversaries worked together to overthrow our Government, went back to the hotel and had a beer, smoked and patted themselves on the back. Then began plotting next time.

This why ONLY ACCOUNTABILITY FOR EVERYONE is the only way.

If we need prison space let pot people out, and fill their cells with traitors. It's that easy, and do all this in the public. It will either scare most into never doing things like this or they will see the error in what took place and change.
