William Barr let one secret slip about the plan to end the Black Lives Matter riots
American cities have faced weeks of civil unrest.
They are looking for answers and for the government to stop this anarchy.
Now William Barr let one secret slip about the plan to end the Black Lives Matter riots.
In a podcast interview with Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Attorney General William Barr revealed for the first time the depth of the federal government’s plan to arrest and charge rioters who tore down statues and looted businesses.
“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 began.
Barr told Cruz that there were about 500 criminal investigations into arson and destruction of federal property.
“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,” Barr continued.
Barr explained that the people out in streets now are no longer protesters, but anarchists and domestic terrorists.
“They want to tear down the country. They are different than many traditional groups, and frequently, the signs of coordination and activity are very close to the event itself,” the attorney general said. “So like the morning of or the day before, and things are very fast-moving. But we definitely see signs out on the street of communication, of organization, of preplanning, prepositioning of things. So it’s definitely organized activity,” Barr concluded.
Donald Trump says he is the law and order President.
And one way to prove that is by arresting the vandals tearing down statues across the country.
