Protests and rioting continue to be a problem in major Democrat cities, and both political parties are pointing fingers.
Democrats are suddenly trying to blame President Trump.
Republicans, on the other hand, say those perpetrating the violence are to blame—as well as certain leftist groups that may be enabling them.
This includes the controversial Antifa organization, as well as Black Lives Matter.
While the groups aren’t responsible for all the violence and rioting, the Department of Homeland Security sees cause for investigation.
That’s what acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Monday night.
The bottom line is that the Department of Justice (DOJ) won’t stand for the dangerous civil unrest.
Via The Daily Wire:
Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Chad Wolf told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Monday night that the Department of Justice (DOJ) was investigating the heads of Black Lives Matter and Antifa over the violent rioting that has broken out in Democratic-controlled cities across the United States.
Wolf added that presidential candidate Joe Biden was “delusional” for saying there’d be more violence if Trump was re-elected.
The investigation into Antifa and BLM is ongoing, but the DOJ has already made arrests.
I know the Department of Justice has charged about 74, 75 individuals there in Portland with different federal crimes.
We will continue to see how those investigations are going. Department of Justice is also targeting and investigating the head of these organizations, the individuals that are paying for these individuals to move across the country.
Concern for public safety appears to be Wolf’s priority. He also cited more numbers:
Thus far, there have been around 175 arrests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and 100 of those individuals were from out-of-state.
This suggests that there are leaders potentially paying for protesters to go certain places, and create unrest.
Wolf said “we know they are moving around” and the DOJ is looking into the driving forces behind it all.
In the end, however, it seems clear that many Americans just want the violence to stop.
- The DOJ is investigating the leaders of Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
- They suspect the heads of these organizations are paying for individuals to travel to certain places and cause problems.
- Arrests have already been made, and some have been charged with federal crimes.
