The Trailer: How Democrats plan to fight domestic terror

• Washington Post - David Weigel

In this edition: The Democrats fight "terror," mapping of the impeachment vote and new leadership for the major party committees.

As they debated the second impeachment of President Trump, House Democrats used words that they've rarely applied to Republican voters. "Sedition" was one. So was "treason." And "terrorism."

"What took place on January 6, 2021 was an act of domestic terrorism by right-wing, sycophantic, white supremacists," said Rep. Yvette Clarke of New York.
