Federal Authorities Have Downplayed White Supremacist Violence

According to The New York Times, white extremist shooters have now killed at least 63 people in the United States over the past 18 months.

Late last month, FBI Director Christopher Wray told members of the Senate Judiciary Committee that crime driven by racism and white supremacy was on the rise compared to the past nine months.

But former FBI agents say there is reluctance within the agency to tackle white nationalist violence in part due to President Trump’s rhetoric.

Democracy Now! speaks with Mike German, fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University Law. From 1988 to 2004, German served as an FBI agent specializing in domestic counterterrorism.
