FILE - In this March 20, 2017, file photo, FBI Director James Comey, testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington. The FBI has been reviewing the handling of thousands of terror-related tips and leads received over the last three years to make sure they were properly investigated and that no obvious red flags were missed, The Associated Press has learned. The audit is an acknowledgment of the challenge the FBI has faced, particularly in recent years, in predicting which of the tens of thousands of tips the bureau receives annually will someday materialize into a viable threat. Comey has likened the difficulty to finding not only a needle in a haystack but determining which piece of hay may become a needle. (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta, File)
