WASHINGTON — The FBI is investigating whether foreign governments, organizations or individuals provided financial support to extremists who helped plan and execute the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, one current and one former FBI official told NBC News. Those payments were documented and posted on the web this week by a company that analyzes cryptocurrency transfers. Payments of bitcoin, a cryptocurrency, can be traced because they are documented on a public ledger. "In at least one instance, a Russian proxy claimed that ANTIFA members disguised themselves as supporters of President Trump, and were responsible for storming the Capitol building." But the cryptocurrency payments prompted the FBI to examine whether any of the money was used to find illegal acts, which, if true, raises the possibility of money laundering and conspiracy charges, the FBI official said.

Dozens of people on the FBI's terrorist watchlist were in Washington, DC, during the siege on the Capitol last week, The Washington Post reported. It's not clear if any of those already arrested for charges relating to the ransacking of the Capitol were on the FBI list. Dozens on the Federal Bureau of Investigation's terrorist watchlist — mainly those categorized as white supremacists — were in Washington, DC, on the day the Capitol was stormed, The Washington Post reported.

WASHINGTON — FBI inspectors who evaluated the domestic terrorism program in the bureau's Washington field office two years ago gave it a "failing grade," meaning it was considered both ineffective and inefficient, two former FBI officials familiar with the matter tell NBC News. Washington, D.C. is considered the top domestic terror target in the country, and the FBI's Inspection Division sent a team to evaluate how the D.C. field office's domestic terrorism programs were working. FBI inspection reports are generally not made public. "They saw a big need for improvement," said a third former FBI official briefed on the matter. Domestic terrorism was ranked as a low priority in the FBI compared to international terrorism, the former official said, which meant that it did not always attract the most aggressive agents.

WASHINGTON — FBI intelligence analysts gathered information about possible violence involving the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6., but the FBI never distributed a formal intelligence bulletin, in part because of concerns that doing so might have run afoul of free speech protections, a current and two former senior FBI officials familiar with the matter told NBC News. While threatening violence isn't protected speech under the First Amendment, the line between protected speech and threats can be hard to discern. "This information was immediately disseminated through a written product and briefed through our command operations to all levels of law enforcement," he said. But the two former FBI officials who spoke Tuesday argued that the bureau is being overly cautious and that it has simply not dedicated the resources required to tackle the domestic threat. But law enforcement officials cautioned that the memo didn't mean they expect violence in every state capitol.

The roughly 100 members of the FBI's Hostage Rescue Team are the Tier 1 operators in the federal law-enforcement community. The FBI's Hostage Rescue Team (HRT) is the Tier 1 law-enforcement special-operations unit and the go-to choice for domestic counterterrorism and hostage rescue. The HRT is the law-enforcement equivalent of the military's Delta Force and SEAL Team 6 and has the authority to conduct operations overseas. Delta Force, SEAL Team 6, and British Special Air Service (SAS) operators were pivotal in the HRT's early days. Former Navy SEALs, Delta Force operators and Rangers from the Army, and Air Force Commandos are just some of those recruited by the Bureau.
