FBI Director Christopher Wray said Tuesday that the bureau has no evidence that far-left violent extremists were involved in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
“We have not to date seen any evidence of anarchist violent extremists or people subscribed to antifa in connection with the sixth,” Wray told lawmakers on the Senate Judiciary Committee, using a term to refer to the left-wing anti-fascism movement.
“That doesn’t mean we’re not looking, and we’ll continue to look, but at the moment we have not seen that.”
While Democrats have pushed the FBI to home in on white nationalism and other far-right ideologies, Republicans point to racial justice demonstrations over the summer that sometimes turned violent to argue the bureau needs to focus on a full range of extremists.
