HeadlineMay 13, 2021

Attorney General Merrick Garland told lawmakers Wednesday white supremacist groups in the U.S. pose a growing threat.

Attorney General Merrick Garland: “And in the FBI’s view, the top domestic violent extremist threat we face comes from racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists, specifically those who advocate for the superiority of the white race.”

Garland also told the Senate Appropriations Committee the deadly January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol was the most “dangerous threat to democracy” he has witnessed.
