Extremists Pose a Violent Threat, FBI and DHS Officials Say

Officials from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security raised concerns at a Senate hearing Thursday about violent threats from extremists across the ideological spectrum.

Ken Cuccinelli, the acting deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, described the high “lethality” of white supremacists in recent years, echoing recent comments by the department’s acting secretary and the FBI’s director.

Mr. Cuccinelli’s comments are notable because a current senior official recently alleged in a whistleblower complaint that Homeland Security’s leadership played down the threat of white supremacists to align with the Trump White House’s agenda. DHS has denied the whistleblower’s complaint.
