Feds warn Capitol riot could stoke more violence in US

The US should brace for more civil unrest this year in wake of the deadly riots at the US Capitol, according to a new warning from federal officials who say the extremists responsible pose “the greatest domestic terrorism threat of 2021.”

A Joint Intelligence Bulletin by the Department of Homeland Security, FBI and National Counterterrorism Center says the insurrection at the nation’s capital will only “embolden” the “domestic violent extremists” that carried out the attack and unify them.

“In 2021, threats and plotting of illegal activity, including destruction of property and violence targeting officials at all levels of the government, law enforcement, journalists, and infrastructure, as well as sporadic violence surrounding lawful protests, rallies, demonstrations, and other gatherings by DVEs will very likely increase due to renewed measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, socio-political conditions, and perceived government overreach,” the memo, released Wednesday, warns.
