WASHINGTON – Congressman Steve Cohen , a senior member of the House Judiciary Committee, today questioned FBI Director Christopher Wray at an oversight hearing on the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Congressman Cohen asked Director Wray about the bureau’s investigations of right-wing extremist and white nationalist threats, including from neo-Nazis groups and Ku Klux Klan members like those who marched in the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville in 2017. He also asked whether the 1955 killing of 14-year-old Emmett Till in Money, Mississippi, has been re-opened and whether other “cold cases” from that time are being reviewed.
