FBI Director Christopher Wray said Tuesday that officials have classified the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol as domestic terrorism.

“That attack, that siege, was criminal behavior, plain and simple, and it’s behavior that we, the FBI, view as domestic terrorism,” Wray told lawmakers on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Wray said the FBI has received more than 270,000 tips from Americans that have helped the bureau identify the numerous people who allegedly participated in the attack.

“Citizens from around the country have sent us more than 270,000 digital media tips. Some have even taken the painful step of turning in their friends or their family members,” he said.

But under questioning from lawmakers, Wray resisted pinning the Capitol breach on a single ideology, saying the group of attackers “included a variety of backgrounds.”

  1. “included a variety of backgrounds.”

    No no no. They were all white supremacists trump supporters. Not a single one of them were leftists. Don’t believe what Faux news tells you.

  2. If he “implied” anything it was that he was explicit that the bad actors WERE rubo k’kulo his supporters. What are you having us believe that at the rally he was speaking to HIS supporters and then transmogrified into the fictional group Antifa? Obviously nonsense. Do we suddenly have short memories how a charismatic leader can rile up a crowd?
