Domestic Terrorist Handed Over $1K to Rep. Nadler

( – In June 2021, domestic terrorist Susan Rosenberg donated $1,000 to Democratic New York Rep. Jerry Nadler’s campaign, according to a report.

Nadler, following Jan. 6, 2021, has been one of the most outspoken Democrats against right-wing extremism. He advocated for prosecuting all those involved, calling it “critical” that everyone involved in the events of Jan. 6 “be identified, investigated, arrested, charged and subsequently prosecuted.”

In 1985, Rosenberg, a member of the May 19th Communist Organization, was convicted for her role in the 1983 domestic terrorism plot that attempted to overthrow the government. As part of the group’s attempt to overthrow the government and assassinate Republican senators, Rosenberg planted a bomb outside the U.S. Senate chamber. According to the FBI, Rosenberg possessed machine guns and 740 pounds of explosives that she intended to use as part of the plot.

Though she was also charged with the bombings at the New York Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association building and U.S. National War College, those charges were dropped as part of a plea deal. She was sentenced in 1988 to serve 58 years in prison. In 2001, with the help and support of Nadler, she was pardoned by then-President Bill Clinton. Then-New York City Mayor Rudy Giulian, Democratic Senate Majority Leader and New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, and police groups opposed the pardon.

Rosenberg, though never tried, also had ties to a 1981 robbery of a Brinks armored truck committed by the group Weather Underground, which resulted in the deaths of a security guard and two police officers.

Rosenberg also made donations to other prominent Democrats, including members of “the Squad,” who have also accused former President Donald Trump of attempting to overthrow the government on Jan. 6. Rosenberg made a donation of $410 to New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a $362 donation to Missouri Rep. Cori Bush, as well as donations to New York Rep. Jamaal Bowman, Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, and Pennsylvania Rep. Summer Lee.
