This is the September 28, 2016 hearing entitled, "Oversight of the Federal Bureau of Investigation," held before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on the Judiciary. From the opening statement of John Conyers, U.S. Representative from Michigan's 13th Congressional District: "The FBI's mission is a complex undertaking: to protect the United States from terrorism, to enforce our criminal laws, and to lead the Nation's law enforcement community. That mission ought to mirror our own priorities in this Committee. In the past few days, for example, we have witnessed near fatal terrorist attacks in Minnesota, New York, and New Jersey. These attacks underscore the growing fear that individuals can be moved to violence at home by the propaganda of ISIS and other terrorist groups abroad even though they have no direct connection to those organizations. To me, this threat is dire. We should be doing all we can within our communities and within our constitutional framework to mitigate the danger. [...] In Charlotte, in Tulsa, in Dallas, right here in Washington, and in other cities across this country, our citizens demand answers to questions about race and policing and the use of lethal force by law enforcement. Our police are under siege, often underresourced, and, in some cases, hard-pressed to build trust with the communities they serve. [...] But will my colleagues discuss [these] pressing issue[s] with the Director of the FBI, whose leadership in the law enforcement community is paramount?" Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: James B. Comey.
