DOJ Is Conducting ‘Very Focused Investigations’ on Individuals Linked to Antifa, Barr Says

Attorney General Barr said that the DOJ is actively investigating individuals tied to Antifa that hijacked the protests after George Floyd was killed by a police officer.

He explained why  Antifa has not been mentioned in many criminal complaints related to the rioting amid protests over the death of George Floyd.

“We have some investigations underway and very focused investigations on certain individuals that relate to Antifa,” Barr said during an interview with Fox News on Monday. “But in the … initial phase of identifying people and arresting them, they were arrested for crimes that don’t require us to identify a particular group or don’t necessitate that.”

He said that Antifa “hijacked” the protests to “engage in lawlessness, violent rioting, arson, looting of businesses, and public property assaults on law enforcement officers and innocent people, and even the murder of a federal agent.” Barr’s comments were echoed by FBI Director Christopher Wray, who said that these individuals have “set out to sow discord and upheaval rather than join in the righteous pursuit of equality and justice.”

Their investigation includes many levels including how the extremist groups were funded and how they were coordinated to cause chaos.

“Some of it relates to an Antifa. Some of it relates to groups that act very much like an Antifa. As I said, there’s a witch’s brew of extremist groups that are trying to exploit this situation on all sides,” Barr said.

Opportunist often get mixed in with groups like Antifa. They use the moment to steal items for their personal use or to sell and make money.

Much of the liberal media wanted America to believe it was white supremacists feeding the riots. Barr did not mention them as a cause in the riots, only the leftist extremist group Antifa.
