“January 6 is not an isolated incident,” he continued. “The problem of domestic terrorism isn’t going away.”
Mr. Wray said the FBI received more than 270,000 tips from Americans that have led agents to identify and arrest people who allegedly participated in the attack. Many of those tips have come from rioters’ relatives, he said.
“Citizens from around the country have sent us more than 270,000 digital media tips,” he said. “Some have even taken the painful step of turning in their family and friends.”
Mr. Wray said the bureau hasn’t seen any evidence that left-leaning violent extremist groups such as Antifa were involved in the deadly insurrection.
“We have not to date seen any evidence of anarchist violent extremists or people subscribed to Antifa in connection with the sixth,” he said.
“That doesn’t mean we’re not looking, and we’ll continue to look, but at the moment we have not seen that,” Mr. Wray continued.
