Dem Rep: Parler Warned FBI Of Threats Over 50 Times

The New York Times reports:

Members of House Oversight and Reform Committee questioned Christopher A. Wray, the F.B.I. director; General Charles Flynn, who commands the U.S. Army Pacific; and Lieutenant General Walter Piatt, director of the Army staff.

Mr. Wray came under tough questioning from Ms. Maloney, who argued federal law enforcement agencies overlooked specific intelligence about threats against the Capitol. “The threats, I would say, were everywhere,” Ms. Maloney said. “The system was blinking red.”

She said the social media site Parler, in particular, referred threats of violence to the F.B.I. more than 50 times ahead of the attack. “I do not recall hearing about this particular email,” Mr. Wray replied. “I’m not aware of Parler ever trying to contact my office.”
