FBI Director Christopher Wray opened his testimony on Capitol Hill today by stating that the bureau views the attack on Jan. 6 as "domestic terrorism."
He said the behavior that day by the rioters was "criminal" and has "no place in our democracy." Wray added that "tolerating" the actions of those who sieged the Capitol "would make a mockery of our nation's rule of law."
Here's where the FBI director said things stand with the Jan. 6 investigation:
- People have sent the FBI more than 270,000 digital media tips.
- The FBI has opened hundreds of investigations in all but one of their 56 field offices around the country.
- The FBI has arrested more than 270 people to date and more than 300 when you include the FBI's partner agencies, Wray said.
