Officials: Violent extremists pose 'elevated threat' to US

WASHINGTON — Violent extremists motivated by political grievances and racial biases pose an “elevated threat” to the U.S. homeland, officials said Wednesday in a declassified intelligence report released more than two months after a violent mob of insurrectionists stormed the U.S. Capitol.

The assessment was made in a report released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and echoes warnings of the threat made by U.S. officials, including FBI Director Christopher Wray.
