Isn't terrorism generally defined as having links to some political/religious group's agenda?

I think what's being suggested is that he was working alone without a specific purpose to his terror making.

Terrorism doesn't have to have links to any specific group, it just has to be motivated by a particular ideology. In this case, racism, as they targeted African Americans in their community. He may have been working alone, but his purpose was to terrorize people of colour, most likely in an aim to drive them out of the neighbourhoods he didn't feel they belonged.

What busta said. Even without a stated ideology or motivation, his targets have a clear pattern that seems to be underreported.

This administration has a pretty specific interpretation of that qualifies as terrorism, even though the Patriot Act seems to give a lot to latitude invoke additional authority.

Has anyone released what his suicide message said?  That might show whether he meets the terrorist definition. If he doesn't maybe the definition is the problem.

It's not grabbing the most sensational headlines but the biggest deal I think is the possibility that Trump may try and have Mueller fired.
There's no doubt in my mind that he'll fire Mueller.  Will probably wait as long as he can though.

2018: The year where we're going to learn intimate details of the  President's extramarital affairs with Porn stars and playboy models and it will probably help him with his evangelical base.

Anyone remember the Star Trek TNG episode Yesterday's Enterprise where Guinan wakes up knowing she's in the wrong timeline but can't quite explain it? That's more or less my everyday now.

My favorite tweet about this whole thing so far was something along these lines:

"I can't believe that we have a president who bangs porn stars, and is creating a space army - and I actually hate him."

The piece of garbage put on another transgendered ban again.

The same day that he boasts about how the Republicans (and Trump) loves the military.  Someone take this clown down already.  I'm tired of waiting for Mueller.

Hey remember that doctor who did Trump's medical exam who claimed he had "incredible genes" and said he could live until he was 200 if he ate a little better? You know, the one who almost certainly fiddled with Trump's listed weight and height to make sure he was just barely not considered obese and then said his health was "excellent"? Anyhoooooo:

What is the end game here?  Can they actually charge him with enough to get him out of office?

Every little piece counts. They're building a case, and there are many threads they need to follow.
