The United States creates a specialized unit on domestic terrorism

The US Department of Justice is creating a specialized unit on domestic terrorism, the department’s top national security officer told lawmakers on Tuesday, describing a «heightened» threat from violent extremists in the country.

Attorney General Matthew Olsen, testifying just days after the nation remembered the first anniversary of the violent uprising on Capitol Hill, said the number of FBI investigations into suspected violent extremists within the country has risen by more than 10%. since spring 2020.

«We have seen a growing threat from those who are motivated by racial animosity, as well as from those who adhere to anti-government and anti-government extremist ideologies,» Olsen said.

The Homeland Security Division, which Olsen heads, has a counter-terrorism section, but Olsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he decided to create a specialized unit on domestic terrorism «to increase our existing focus.»
