(CNN)The Biden administration will release its highly anticipated national strategy for fighting domestic terrorists in the coming weeks, the White House announced Tuesday, signaling a major break from President Donald Trump's administration in addressing more directly the threats posed by White supremacists and right-wing militia groups.

The expected release of the strategy comes after the White House said Tuesday that it has completed a sweeping assessment of the threat posed by domestic violent extremism, an issue that took on new urgency after the January 6 assault on the Capitol by supporters of Trump who were trying to overturn President Joe Biden's election victory.

But there is one key question that the strategy document will not answer: where the Biden administration stands on the prospect of creating new laws specifically tailored around domestic terrorism issues, said a source familiar with the strategy.

The strategy will, however, recommend "a range of things that promote public safety without infringing on political expression or freedom of association," said a White House official, who noted that the interagency working group has been examining how to increase resources and training for law enforcement, stymie online recruitment and radicalization, and protect against insider threats within federal agencies.
