Finally, the U.S. Department of Justice is investigating the role that the domestic terrorist outfit known as Antifa had in this week’s riots.
This is the right move. These Antifa terrorists have had free rein in this country long enough. They mostly operate in Democrat-controlled cities where the local politicians support them and shield them.
But it is long past the time for the feds to come in to identify these criminals and begin putting them in jail.
Per Fox News:
Federal law enforcement officials are probing whether “criminal actors” are coordinating violent activities during protests and are looking into reports that “rocks and bricks” have been dropped off to throw at police and other law enforcement as cities across the country grapple with the uptick in violence, a senior Justice Department official said.
“You see the hallmarks… We’re trying to see if there’s a coordinated command and control, you see those breadcrumbs and that’s what we’re trying to verify,” the DOJ official said.
Another DOJ official said the feds have seen signs of “very organized” coordination from “professional” agitators, some linked to Antifa.
It is about time our federal law enforcement starts working for the people of the United states instead of its enemies.
We need more Obama deep staters purged from government, granted. But it is long past time the FBI and DOJ stop these pointless illicit “investigations” into innocent Republicans and begin tracking and jailing the actual criminals in groups like Antifa.
“Bill Barr, the attorney general, has been involved in decisions related to dealing with protesters, including sending riot teams to cities,” Fox added. “He was spotted in Lafayette Square on Monday observing the protests outside the White House before officials cleared the area ahead of President Trump venturing out to observe the site. Administration officials said Barr himself made the decision to extend the security perimeter around the park because of the protests.”
Let’s hope this results in real action.
By the way, this is yet another reason why we need to re-elect Trump in November. These sort of efforts will instantly cease if a Democrat wins in November.
