FBI Director Chris Wray has blasted the deadly Capitol riot as "domestic terrorism" and said the homegrown threat is on par with ISIS.
The director was speaking during a Senate hearing on Tuesday morning.
"I was appalled that you, our country's elected leaders, were victimized right here in these very halls," Wray testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
"That siege was criminal behavior, pure and simple. It's behavior that we, the FBI, view as domestic terrorism."
