Oversight of the FBI: The January 6th Insurrection, Domestic Terrorism, Other Threats

 

Federal Bureau of Investigation - FBIWashington, D.C. – Good morning, Chairman Durbin, Ranking Member Grassley, and members of the committee. I am honored to be here, representing the men and women of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Our people—nearly 37,000 of them—are the heart of the Bureau. I am proud of their service and their commitment to our mission. Every day, they tackle their jobs with perseverance, professionalism, and integrity—sometimes at the greatest of costs.

Just last month, two of our agents made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Special Agents Dan Alfin and Laura Schwartzenberger left home to carry out the mission they signed up for—to keep the American people safe.
