Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Christopher Wray Says the FBI Has Found No Antifa Connection to Capitol Riot” – below is their description.
A Senate hearing on the deadly January 6th riot at the U.S. Capitol opens with a focus on domestic terrorism.
Sen. Dick Durbin, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committe says “white supremacist and other extremist are the most significant domestic terrorism threats facing the United States today.”
While ranking member Sen. Chuck Grassley said he agrees with Durbin but they must “fight right wing and left wing extremism.”
Their comments came during their opening statements before FBI Director Chris Wray was set to testify for the first time since the deadly riot.
Lawmakers are likely to press Wray on whether the bureau adequately communicated with other law enforcement agencies about the potential for violence that day.
Questions about the FBI’s preparations for the riot, and investigations into it, are expected to dominate Wray’s appearance Tuesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
He’s also likely to be pressed on how the FBI is confronting the national security threat from white nationalists and domestic violent extremists and whether the bureau has adequate resources to address the problem.
The violence at the Capitol made clear that a law enforcement agency that revolutionized itself after the September 11, 2001, attacks to deal with international terrorism is now scrambling to address homegrown violence from white Americans.
President Joe Biden’s administration has tasked his national intelligence director to work with the FBI and Department of Homeland Security to assess the threat.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
