Thinking about this year. At the start of 2020, I was still on the disinfo beat, with a focus on health. In the first two months, I published stories about people who fell into internet rabbit holes, to tragic consequences. This one will stay with me. https://t.co/8rP5Vy0wEw

In a leaked 2019 video, Alex Jones trashes Trump, saying he's "so sick" of him and wishes they never met. Jones also allegedly bragged about making $60m in a year and mocked his audience by saying he could sell them "dick pills." My latest: https://t.co/80kEMeOXRX

Blumenthal brings up QAnon. Wray says the FBI is "concerned about the QAnon phenomenon," notes domestic violent extremists who cite QAnon as part of their motivation.

Wray says: It used to be some angry demented guy living in mom's basement. He's now able to communicate with a similarly angry guy in grandma's attic in another part of the country. And they get each other spun up ...

Wray says social media is a "major factor, a catalyst" for domestic terrorism, citing increased speed of dissemination and interconnectedness. "Terrorism today moves at the speed of social media."

Mike Lee presumably knows that FISA is almost certainly not a tool being used in response to Jan. 6 but also knows the way "FISA" triggers certain people in certain ways.

Wray says foreign adversaries are leveraging the Capitol attacks to push out propaganda and misinformation, and accelerate what they see as the country's decline.

The only ideology Wray can give for Capitol rioters at the moment is "militia violent extremist" and "racially motivated (white) violent extremists"

Durbin asks about the claim that antifa, not Trump supporters, invaded the Capitol, calling it "the next big lie." Wray: "We have seen no evidence of that."

Cannot wrap my head around how Senator Grassley can compare what happened on January 6 and years of white supremacist mass shoutings being equivalent in any way to left wing extremism - Director #Wray hearing

This bears out what we saw all year. People really lost their minds online in 2020. Following these conspiracy theory-addled new reactionaries is going to be just as important going forward. https://t.co/iNTGKK3eKo via @PeteWilliamsNBC

I would say I’m surprised that Mr. Ngo took a random tweet, removed the context (QAnon rallies in more than 200 mostly small towns) made a vague ominous mischaracterization of the meaning, and lobbed a false accusation, but that actually checks out. https://t.co/FAkXSFTLKG https://t.co/odFbXyzFFz

NBC reporter @BrandyZadrozny has criticized me repeatedly for my coverage of #antifa. I assumed it was a difference of opinion on the extremist movement. Turns out, Zadrozny appears to intentionally mislead the public on antifa. https://t.co/lc8SSCz3B6
