Attorney General Bill Barr Urges Prosecutors to Charge Violent Criminal Rioters With Sedition
Attorney General Bill Barr reportedly urged district attorneys to consider charging violent criminal rioters with sedition during a Department of Justice conference call last week, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal. The WSJ is sourcing anonymous(as usual) prosecutors who were upset with Barr’s recommendation.
The anonymous source also claimed that Bill Barr had instructed DOJ attorneys to research the possibility of criminally charging Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan for allowing the creation of a sovereign anarchist commune within the confines of her city. The so-called Capital Hill Autonomous Zone lasted just under a month in June, a time period in which numerous shootings occurred and one wounded man died because Seattle first responders (evicted from the CHAZ)were unable to reach him in time.
2020 has seen some of the most violent and destructive rioting in the history of the United States, with more than 90% of dangerous riots during this year associated with the Black Lives Matter movement. Attorney General Barr has increasingly urged state and local prosecutors determined to look the other way to perform their duties and prosecute violent crimes committed by supporters of the riot movement.
There’s a pretty high likelihood that a Democrat prosecutor is simply making up what the Times is reporting, but it wouldn’t be a bad idea on the part of Barr if he was seriously considering it. A Justice Department spokesperson denied that Barr had been investigating the possibility of charging Mayor Durkan for providing assistance to the CHAZ on Wednesday.
ANTIFA militants speak of their intention to overthrow state and federal governments all the time, and should be held criminally responsible in turn for their violent activity.
