“From a threat perspective, we still see many traditional threats in the 9/11 battle,” Wolf told host Brett Barrer. “[We see in] Some of the anti-terror terrorist organizations which are still definitely a threat to the motherland, but we see a domestic threat in the country as well as in the last several years.

“The threat has changed and it has changed over the years, but we continue to work in the department to face all the threats,” Wolf said.

Baird said that in February, FBI Director Chris Ray confirmed that the FBI was engaged in active domestic terrorism investigations in all 50 states.

“The lonely, homegrown criminal who is going to commit some kind of incident here in the motherland is definitely a concern for the department,” Wolf agreed. “That is the danger we are focused on today.


“As you have seen over the years, most attacks on the homeland have come from small cells of lone criminals or individuals,” he said. “And that’s where the focus happens and again, we do all the threats on the department, so when we focus on one, we definitely focus on a wider range of threats based on homeland.”

Wolf also responded to a whistleblower complaint filed earlier this week alleging that the department suppressed reports about Russian election interference, calling it “completely inaccurate” and “a fabrication”.
