Acting chief of the Department of Homeland Security, Chad Wolf, claims that government investigators are already investigating members of Antifa and other groups who are taking part in the violent riots sweeping the country.
“I think, overall, what we have seen as far as taking place, sort of boots on the ground in these metropolitan areas, are the groups like Antifa or anarchists in general,” Wolf told Fox host Bret Baier.
“And those are the types of people that we see. That’s the intel that we’re getting back, primarily moving these violent protests and these organizations in a certain way. It usually occurs after nightfall. So, during the day, we usually see the nonviolent protests occurring,” Wolf said. “And then, when it gets to the night, we see the more violent protests starting to happen, criminals starting to take place, organized, loosely organized during the day to achieve a specific goal.”
“I think what we’re seeing right now, it’s loosely organized within a metropolitan city. Is it being organized across the country in an organized way? I don’t think that we see that yet. But, again, we’re continuing to analyze the intelligence and really getting the feedback from the state and local law enforcement officials in these individual cities.”
“So, we will continue to look at – we are partnering. We have a number of investigators at the department that are working with DOJ and working with FBI. We know that they have opened up a number of cases specifically targeting some of the leaders of Antifa and other organizations that are involved,” he said.
The Gateway Pundit reported that AG Barr also says the destruction in U.S. cities is being caused by far-left radical groups such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
“We have evidence that Antifa and other similar extremist groups as well as actors of a variety of different political persuasions have been involved in instigating and participating in the violent activity. We are also seeing foreign actors playing all sides to exacerbate the violence,” Barr said.
James O’Keefe and Project Veritas also released their investigative report on the domestic terrorist group Antifa on Thursday. Project Veritas’s latest undercover report reveals how Antifa practice eye-gouging, beating their opponents and create an environment of fear and terror.
