Reuters exclusively reports Senate is pushing FBI on intelligence ’fail‘ on the Proud Boys

Reuters exclusively reported that the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee chair is pressing the Federal Bureau of Investigation to explain how it failed to anticipate the violence of Jan. 6, despite having contact with several members of the far-right Proud Boys in the months before the insurrection. Democratic Senator Dick Durbin wrote to FBI Director Christopher Wray asking whether the agency had adequately pushed its sources in the extremist group to understand their plans before the Capitol attack that sought to block the certification of Joe Biden’s election as president.
