FBI Claims Terror Threats Home and Abroad are Nearly Equally Split

The new FBI director said Wednesday that the FBI’s number of investigations are almost equally spilt between cases involving domestic cases and those involving jihadi terrorist operatives.

Democratic party leaders have been urging Trump and his Administration to change the nations focus on security away from Islamic radicals and more toward fight against white supremacists groups here at home.

The FBI is currently reviewing some 1,000 domestic terrorism cases. This almost equal to the number of jihadi terrorist threats, claims Christopher Ray, the new director of the FBI. He took the reins back in August of 2017.

During Wednesday’s hearing, hosted by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, several Senate Democrats argued that white supremacist and domestic extremist threat may require more resources, using last month’s violence in Charlottesville, Va., as an example, the Times reported.

Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Democrat from Missouri and Sen. Kamala Harris a Democrat from California, both made cases on why we need a bigger emphasis on domestic Terrorism.

“I don’t think many Americans understand the level of threat that we have in this country from white supremacists, anti-government and other violent extremists,” claimed Sen. McCaskill.

FBI director Christopher Wray told senators that “there are a significant number of agents who are working very hard on that subject” later stating that “it’s a top priority”

Government officials stated that they are and have been taking all threats seriously, although they don’t divide any resources between the two issues.

Back in May the FBI said they have linked white supremacist groups to some 49 homicides in 26 different attacks spanning from 2000 to 2016. “more than any other domestic extremist movement,” according to The Hill.
