The comment "We don't trust the FBI!" underscored what the FBI's General Counsel, Valerie Caproni, told the committee earlier in the hearing - that the bureau needs American public support to fight terrorism, particularly in neighborhoods susceptible to radical influence. "We need people in those communities to call us when they hear or see something that looks amiss. We know that we reduce the probability of that call immeasurably, if we lose the confidence of any part of the American public," she said.

对于联邦调查局的不信任批评,联邦调查局局长valerie caproni与听证会之前强调说“调查局需要公众对于反恐怖的支持,尤其是那些存在邻里之间种族影响地地方。在这些社区,我们需要群众告知我们,他们所看到或感觉到的不对劲的地方。如果我们失去了部分公众的信任,请他们告诉我们,使我们减少这方面的错误。”

日前,联邦调查局局长Valerie Caproni在听证会上针对公众发出的“我们不信任联邦调查局”这一说法,强调指出,联邦调查局需要公众对于反恐的支持,特别是在那些激进份子影响相对集中的街区。她说,“如果在这些社区里,群众听见或看见了什么异常情况,我们需要他们及时通知我们。但如果我们在美国民众中失去了信任,公众给予我们这类通知的可能性便会急剧减少。”

个人理解,
1、earlier in the hearing 是“早些时候,在听证会上”的意思,而不是“在听证会之前”
2、radical是激进份子,而不是种族主义份子。
3、最后一句话,我与楼主的理解也略有不同。

请指正。

I don't agree on the translations of "underscore'.
here:
underscored means put emphasis on
or
"We don't trust the FBI!" 的言论让(此次)..的话变的尤为重要

neighborhoods susceptible to radical influence

-this sentence doesn't mean neighborhood with racial influence. It meant neighborhood thats influenced by radical Muslim (radical for short)
