FBI Using Alarming Language to Describe Online Terror Chatter

“We know who you are. If you’re out there, an FBI agent is coming to find you”.

If the FBI is right, we might be in for one hellacious week.

The Bureau has been increasingly concerned with the potential of more political violence in the coming days.  These attacks could target state Capitols around the nation, or perhaps even the Biden inaugural itself.  Authorities have passed these warnings down to local officials, but each new memo seems to contain ever more alarming news.

The latest from the agency suggests that those planning to create chaos have been talking “extensively” online.

The FBI is tracking an “extensive amount of concerning online chatter,” including calls for armed protests leading up to next week’s presidential inauguration, Director Chris Wray said Thursday.

Wray, in his first public appearance since the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, said in a security briefing for Vice President Mike Pence that the FBI remains concerned about the potential for violence at protests and rallies in Washington and in state capitols around the country.

Those events could bring armed individuals near government buildings and elected officials, Wray warned, while also noting, “One of the real challenges in this space is trying to distinguish what’s aspirational versus what’s intentional.”

Wray said the FBI was receiving a “significant” amount of information that it was pushing out to other law enforcement agencies ahead of the inauguration. Information-sharing is critical before any significant public event like the inauguration, but the issue is receiving particular scrutiny because of signs law enforcement was unprepared for the violent, deadly surge at the Capitol by loyalists of President Donald Trump.

Wray would go on to state that the FBI has identified at least 200 of the suspects involved in the storming of the Capitol, stating clearly that “We know who you are. If you’re out there, an FBI agent is coming to find you”.
