Kamala Harris Uses Senate Hearing On “Threats To The Homeland” To Press FBI About Brett Kavanaugh
Despite the fact that the FBI is currently investigating about 5,000 terrorism cases spanning all 50 states, Senator Kamala Harris used a Senate Hearing on “threats to the homeland” to press FBI Director Christopher Wray on the FBI’s handling of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s seventh FBI background investigation.
“Right now, as I sit here, we’re currently investigating about 5,000 terrorism cases across America and around the world and about a thousand of those cases are homegrown violent extremists and they are in all 50 states…”
Wow, she’s desperate!
FBI Director Christopher Wray made a stunning disclosure to the Senate Homeland Security Committee: The bureau is investigating 5,000 terrorism cases around the world.
“Right now, as I sit here, we’re currently investigating about 5,000 terrorism cases across America and around the world and about a thousand of those cases are homegrown violent extremists and they are in all 50 states,” Wray said in his prepared testimony on Wednesday.
He added that in the last year, the FBI has made “hundreds of arrests of terrorism subjects.”
When asked about the homegrown terrorism threat, he said that the FBI considers those threats “domestic terrorism.”
The bureau is investigating roughly 1,000 cases of domestic terrorism in the U.S., Wray said.
Wray was expected to field questions about the role the White House played in the FBI’s investigation into a sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who was confirmed by a mostly partisan vote on Sunday. More
