FBI considers white supremacist groups as great a threat as ISIS

The threat of white supremacists in the United States is real, and the FBI is reportedly taking it just as seriously as ISIS, according to FBI Director Chris Wray. While speaking to senators, Director Wray said “We take both of them very, very seriously. Our focus is on violence and threats of violence against the people of this country. That’s our concern – it’s not ideology.” “A lot of the [domestic terrorism] cases we bring, we’re able to charge under gun charges, explosive charges, all manner of other crimes,” Wray said. In addition, he noted “We also work a lot with state and local law enforcement who can sometimes bring straightforward, easy-to-make cases; homicide cases, things like that.”
