Rice: Administration Will Probe Origins of White Nationalist Violence

Daniel Uria, UPI, January 26, 2021

President Joe Biden‘s domestic policy adviser, Susan Rice, said Tuesday that he has ordered an intelligence assessment into White nationalism and that the administration will “craft and implement policies” to address racial equality in America.

In a media briefing, Rice cited the Jan. 6 siege on the U.S. Capitol building, saying a “comprehensive assessment of the nature of this threat and challenge” to determine the “origins and roots” of violent White nationalism will help the administration determine the proper policy to address it.


Rice, who served as U.N. ambassador and national security adviser for former President Barack Obama, also said the National Security Council will place a focus on domestic violent extremism.
