EXCLUSIVE Senate pushes FBI on intelligence “fail” on the Proud BoysThe U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee chair is pressing the Federal Bureau of Investigation to explain how it failed to anticipate the violence of Jan. 6, despite having contact with several members of the far right Proud Boys in the months before the insurrection.
