On Tuesday, the Senate legislature had the opportunity to question FBI Director Christopher Wray about the January 6 riot. However, many of the Republican senators were more interested in asking about MS-13 and Antifa and exempting Donald Trump from any guilt.
Wray made it clear to the Senate that right-wing violence was one of the bureau’s biggest concerns. “W.We see a whole series of cases as we expand the cases to include those we arrested for the violence, a whole series of whom we would call violent militia extremists, ”he said.
The FBI director continued: “Some identify themselves with the Proud Boys or Oath Keepers. Things like this. We also have a few instances where we have already identified individuals involved in the criminal behavior that we would bring into the racially motivated, violent extremists who advocate what you would call white supremacy. So there were some of those people too. “
Nicolle Wallace addressed Wray’s shutdown of GOP claims during her show on Tuesday. She began, “Before we go any further, a quick program note. The behavior that Wray describes as domestic terror was greeted by Donald Trump with the quote “We love you”. And a terrifying warning to Congress with this quote: “This is what happens when you have the audacity to actually count the votes.”
The MSNBC presenter ended her segment by coining a new nickname for Ron Johnson. “Wray also highlighted the role of white supremacists in the attacks, as well as other militias known to have supported Donald Trump. And he debunked RonAnon Johnson’s theory that Trump supporters were somehow behind the attack. ”
