FBI Director Christopher Wray said that the majority of domestic terrorism his agency investigates is motivated by "some version of what you might call white supremacist violence" -- a revelation that supports comments for which CNN anchor Don Lemon received significant blowback not long ago.

"This year," Durbin said.
"This year," Wray confirmed, and added "But we've also had just about the same number, again don't quote me the exact digit, on the domestic terrorism side, and I will say that a majority of the domestic terrorism cases that we've investigated are motivated by some version of white, what you might call white supremacist violence, but it includes other things as well."
