US Attorney General Merrick Garland
The Biden Justice Department is “actively considering” whether to give prosecutors new authorities to bring specific charges against “domestic terrorists.”
“One of the things we’re looking at is would we need new authorities,” Brad Wiegmann, deputy assistant attorney general for the department’s national security division, said Thursday.
Because the current laws on the books to bring charges for arson, violations of weapons or explosives laws isn’t enough.
The reality is the DOJ is looking to make new laws to persecute people with whom they politically disagree.
The Justice Department did not mention BLM terrorists or Antifa terrorists; they are focused on so-called “white supremacists” – which is just code for Trump supporters/conservatives.
The FBI said white supremacists pose the most lethal threat despite the fact that BLM and Antifa have caused billions in damage, killed dozens of people and burned countless buildings to the ground over the last year.
Bloomberg reported that Wiegmann told a House Appropriations subcommittee that the one question the DOJ is wrestling with is: “Are there gaps?”
“Is there some type of conduct that we can envision that we can’t cover or would it be an otherwise benefit in having something else other than what we’re having now?” Wiegmann said, admitting the DOJ is looking to politically persecute conservatives.
“Currently, no U.S. law lets the government designate domestic extremists as terrorists or bring specific charges for domestic terrorism. That contrasts with laws to combat international terrorism, which allow the government to designate groups and bring charges for providing those groups with material support.” Bloomberg reported.
“This is a cancer on our country,” said Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-PA), chairman of the subcommittee. “Right-wing extremist attacks and plots have greatly outnumbered those from all other groups combined and caused more deaths as well.”
Again, no mention of BLM or Antifa terrorists and no mention of black on black violence that kills hundreds of blacks every year in Chicago.
Not a word about blacks attacking Asians. The Biden regime is specifically hunting down white people.
