After living as a fugitive for two years, Rosenberg was arrested in 1984 while in possession of a large cache of explosives and firearms over 750 lbs and automatic weapons. She had also been sought as an accomplice in the 1979 prison escape of Assata Shakur and in the 1981 Brink's robbery that resulted in the deaths of two police officers and a guard, although she was never charged in either case.I think the terrorist charges were dropped because of a plea deal. I might be wrong.I don't always agree with a fact checker's conclusions, but the sources they use are usually helpful in either googling further or making up my mind.Did a 'Convicted Terrorist' Sit on the Board of a BLM Funding Body?

Susan Rosenberg has served as vice chair of the board of directors for Thousand Currents, an organization that provides fundraising and fiscal sponsorship for the Black Lives Matter Global Movement. She was an active member of revolutionary left-wing movements whose illegal activities included bombing U.S. government buildings and committing armed robberies.
In the absence of a single, universally-agreed definition of "terrorism," it is a matter of subjective determination as to whether the actions for which Rosenberg was convicted and imprisoned — possession of weapons and hundreds of pounds of explosives — should be described as acts of "domestic terrorism."
She was charged with bombing the US senate in the 80s. Got caught with hundreds of pounds of explosives. Was in a few terrorist groups etc.
But her actions described as "domestic terrorism" is questionable. LOL
Instead of simply saying "true" they call it a "mixture" and throw in some bullshit.
Here is the definition from the FBI

Thats right folks. The definition was written into US law.

In this case, I'd say they were trying pretty damned hard not to call her a terrorist, but why didn't the DOJ either?
Rosenberg was sentenced to 58 years' imprisonment on the weapons and explosives charges. Her sentence was commuted to time served [16 years] by President Bill Clinton on January 20, 2001, his final day in office. Wikipedia Susan Rosenberg
