GOP Senators Seek Answers as Biden's DoJ Reveals Formation of New Domestic Terrorism Unit

A top FBI official revealed on Tuesday that the agency has assessed racially- or ethnically-motivated violent extremism and violent anti-government extremism as the most "lethal" terrorist threats facing the US. Senators questioned the official on many fronts, including a purported FBI involvement in the deadly US Capitol riot.

Matthew G. Olsen, the head of the US Department of Justice's National Security Division, revealed in opening remarks before the Senate Judiciary Committee that the department would form a new Domestic Terrorism Unit to assist in combating a growing security threat.

The DoJ official detailed that the new unit would "augment our existing approach" established by National Security Division attorneys tasked with both international and domestic cases.

"The attacks in recent years underscore the threat that domestic terrorism continues to pose to our citizens, to law enforcement officers and elected officials, and to our democratic institutions," he said.
