50 GOP Lawmakers Call On AG Barr To “Investigate & Prosecute The Groups” Behind The Riots

A group of 50 GOP lawmakers led by Rep. Ken Buck are calling for Attorney General Bill Barr to investigate who may be funding riots of far-left anarchist groups.

Among the group are lawmakers Andy Biggs, Doug Collins and Steve King.

Below is the letter sent to AG Barr.

It reads “ANTIFA and other left-wing anarchist groups have unleashed a barrage of totalitarian attacks on our country in recent months, including accosting a sitting U.S. Senator, hijacking peaceful rallies, organizing armed riots, destroying property, burning buildings, stealing livelihoods, and spreading hate.”

In a statement, Buck said “We write to share our deep concerns regarding the ongoing violence that has gripped American cities and threatened the rule of law across our nation. ANTIFA and other left-wing anarchist groups have unleashed a barrage of totalitarian attacks on our country in recent months, including accosting a sitting U.S. Senator, hijacking peaceful rallies, organizing armed riots, destroying property, burning buildings, stealing livelihoods, and spreading hate.”

“ANTIFA and other far-left anarchist groups have wreaked havoc on our nation for far too long. Americans deserve to feel safe and secure in their own communities. It is time that AG Barr and the DOJ take action to investigate and prosecute the groups responsible for these violent riots.”
