FBI Director Christopher Wray said Tuesday that the agency was investigating about 2,000 domestic terrorism cases as it steps up its focus on the threat of further attacks like the Jan. 6 Capitol attack by a pro-Trump mob. "We have significantly grown the number of investigations and arrests," Wray told the Senate Judiciary Committee. Wray defended the bureau's handling of intelligence ahead of last month's insurrection, but he conceded that a review was necessary because what happened Jan. 6 was not an "acceptable result." He said an ominous warning of violence the night before the attack was "raw, unverified, uncorroborated information," but added that the FBI had alerted Capitol Police and others. Hearings on the riot will continue on Wednesday.
