Nadler Got Donation from Ex-Domestic Terrorist After Jan. 6


Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), a veteran House Democrat and supporter of justice, received campaign contributions from a former member of a domestic terrorist organization in the months following the Jan. 6 riots.

In July 2021, Nadler received $1,000 from Susan Rosenberg, according to campaign finance records discovered by the Washington Free Bacon. Nadler has been one of the most vocal Democrats against right-wing extremism following Jan. 6, 2021.

Rosenberg was part of the May 19th Communist Organization and connected to other revolutionary groups. In 1988, she was sentenced to 58 years in prison for possessing hundreds of pounds of explosives and machine guns, according to the FBI, intending to use them in politically motivated bombings. She was pardoned by then-President Bill Clinton in 2001, with the endorsement of Nadler.

In July 2021, Nadler was the House Judiciary Committee chairman. Weeks before Rosenberg’s donation, he condemned the “terrorists” who “planned” and executed the Capitol riots. Rosenberg has also reportedly made small donations to progressive “Squad” House Democrats.

In the weeks following the Capitol attack, Nadler pushed for the prosecution of all those involved, writing to then-acting Attorney General Monty Wilkinson that it was “critical that all of the perpetrators of this insurrectionist attack be identified, investigated, arrested, charged and subsequently prosecuted.”

Nadler is anticipated to secure reelection this November, representing New York’s 12th Congressional District.

The Supreme Court is poised to rule on a case that could determine the consequences for those involved in the Jan. 6 insurrection. It will decide the extent to which an obstruction law can be used to prosecute hundreds of individuals tied to the Jan. 6 riots and the Capitol attack. This ruling could also impact former President Donald Trump, who faces two counts under the same obstruction statute.

Truth Voices sought comment from Nadler’s office but had not received a response at the time of publication.
