AG Bill Barr says that the DOJ is in the process of examining the videos from the left’s attempts to pull down the statue of Andrew Jackson near the White House.
Barr says they are working to identify the suspects and once they do, he plans on prosecuting them to the fullest extent of the law.
Barr told Sen Ted Cruz that the DOJ has already “scores of indictments” filed against the far left criminals who participated in the violent riots that took place across the country and they are not done yet.
Bill Barr added:
“Obviously, we’re going to prosecute… videos of those involved in the attack on President Jackson’s statue are being reviewed.”
These violent rioters got away with murder in 2014 during the Michael Brown riots and the Congressional Black caucus humiliated themselves when they would raise their arms in unison and say “Hands up. Don’t shoot.” And some Democrats continue to do that even until today.
Recently, the worst governor in the United States, Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan marched with BLM chanting, “Hands up. Don’t shoot.” This is six years after it was proven to be a fake.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Attorney General William Barr said the Justice Department had “scores of indictments” filed against people who committed violence during a wave of protests across the country.
During Thursday’s episode of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s podcast, Verdict, which is co-hosted by conservative commentator Michael Knowles, Barr said his agency was using 35 joint terrorist task forces across the country to investigate criminal activity, which has taken place since the Memorial Day death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man.
“When the real violence started around May 25, 26, and so forth, we started using our joint terrorist task forces around the country. And there are 35 of them around the country,” Barr said.
“And now they are starting to go full bore, cranking out investigations, indictments against the people who are involved in this violence. So we’ve had scores of indictments already for such things as arson, destruction of federal property, things like that. And we have, right now, about 500 investigations underway,” he added.
Barr told Cruz and Knowles that groups of “provocateurs and agitators” appeared to be well-coordinated and often call upon anarchist groups to carry out violent criminal activity.
