‘Total Retraction’ of FBI’s ‘Black Identity Extremism’ Report ‘Imperative,’ Says Dem Congresswoman

WASHINGTON – Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, recently called on the FBI to retract its report on “Black Identity Extremism.”

“What even qualifies as a black identity extremist, and are there groups likely to attack law enforcement officers?” Bass said during a Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) briefing on Capitol Hill late last month about “Black Identity Extremists Likely Motivated To Target Law Enforcement Officers,” an internal 12-page August 2017 FBI document that was leaked and published in October.
