The FBI is investigating thousands of terrorism cases and arrested hundreds of terrorism suspects in the past year, FBI Director Christopher Wray told a Senate committee on Wednesday.

“Right now as I sit here, we’re currently investigating about 5,000 terrorism cases across America and around the world and about 1,000 of those cases are homegrown violent extremists, and they’re in all 50 states,” Wray said at a hearing about security threats before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

“In the last year or so we’ve made hundreds of arrests of terrorism subjects,” Wray added.

Wray is expected to be questioned about the FBI’s controversial investigation of sexual assault claims against Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh.

Owner of Limo Company Tied to Deadly Crash Was an FBI Informant

The owner of the limousine company linked to a crash that killed 20 people in New York is a former FBI informant who posed as a recruiter of terrorists and an arms dealer.

Shahed Hussain, who owns Prestige Limousine in Wilton, New York, began working for the FBI to avoid deportation after he faced federal charges for using fake documents to help a would-be taxi driver obtain a driver’s license, the New York Times reports. 

One of his limos plowed through a stop sign Saturday, killing 18 people on board and two pedestrians.

State and federal investigators are scrutinizing the company to help determine the cause of the accident. The limo should not have been on the road because it had failed a state Department of Transportation inspection and the drive did not have a proper license to operate the vehicle.

After Hussain was arrested on fraud charges in December 2001, three months after 9/11, he agreed to become an FBI informant. He worked undercover, helping the FBI ensnare arrests during counter-terrorism stings.

Hussain also testified in high-profile terrorism cases.
