Wray: We Were Not Directed to Divert Resources Away from Race-Based Extremism During Trump Admin

‘We did not receive direction to, nor did we separate or divert resources away from tackling racially motivated violent extremism’

EXCERPT:

WRAY: "We did not receive direction to, nor did we separate or divert resources away from tackling racially motivated violent extremism, white, over to anarchist violent extremism or anything along those lines. In fact, as I’ve said, we, I, elevated racially motivated violent extremism, the vast majority of which is what you would call white supremacist violence to our highest threat priority, where it has stayed. And that drives resources, that drives the collection requirements for all of our field offices. And I think the results speak for themselves. We have significantly grown the number of investigations and arrests in the category that you’re asking about. It was up to about 1,400 by the end of last year and it’s about to about 2,000 now, which is doubled where it was at the pace when I started this job."
