VT Right Again: FBI Finds “Zero Intel Indicating Antifa Involvment’ in Riots (they are riots that coincide with peaceful demonstrations)

Trump wants to designate Antifa a terrorist organization despite lack of authority and zero evidence of wrongdoing.

The FBI report, however, states, “based on CHS [Confidential Human Source] canvassing, open source/social media partner engagement, and liaison, FBI WFO has no intelligence indicating Antifa involvement/presence.”

The statement followed a list of violent acts like bricks being thrown at police and a backpack containing explosive materials, which were flagged by the FBI under a “Key Updates” section of the report.

The FBI has been issuing such reports daily since the weekend, according to an FBI source, who added that none of these documents contained any evidence of Antifa violence.

The report did warn that individuals from a far-right social media group had “called for far-right provocateurs to attack federal agents, use automatic weapons against protesters.” (The Nation is withholding the name of the group in order to not disrupt any potential law enforcement investigations.)  Read more:

ABOUT: Ken Klippenstein (@kenklippenstein) is The Nation‘s DC Correspondent. His reporting focuses on the machinations of the American national security state and documents under-the-radar politics and policies enacted by the Trump administration.

His previous reporting on the basis of leaked documents has revealed that the US military predicted and planned for a coronavirus pandemic years ago—and still the Trump administration did nothing; predicted how Trump is using the coronavirus to militarize the border, including his failed $145 million plan to surveil the Canadian border; shown the coronavirus crisis is giving Trump extraordinary and limitless powers to actively surveil and detain individuals; documented the crisis making its way into border detention facilities more than a week before ICE publicly acknowledged it; and revealed how Trump’s signature foreign policy led to the biggest Covid-19 outbreak among US troops in the world.

Klippenstein was previously senior investigative reporter for The Young Turks and a frequent contributor to The Daily Beast. His reporting has been referenced by countless outlets and cited by Congress—including, in one instance, to grill FBI Director Christopher Wray.

  1. Activism has faced a lot of tricks by police, such as “kettling”, false arrests, misinformation, and propaganda for many years. Instigators was something that popped up a long time ago, but modern protestors to a large degree were clueless, and white supremacist gangs showed up and were committing violence against protestors, and largely supported by police and private security. That is where Antifa gained fame, was by educating and protecting protestors from these infiltrators. There was a need for knowledge of rights and direct physical protection.
    The founders of this country were anti-fascists. And so are the large majority of people in the world. The White Supremacist/Nationalist movement was outraged, so they co-opted it, just like Trump co-opted the “taking a knee” in the NFL. Nobody is fooled except fools.

  2. Sorry, the lack of confirmed sources on this story makes for poor journalism. Unless you have absolute proof, such as who is definitively providing the pallets of bricks, it’s not enough to say Antifa is innocent and not involved anywhere in the nation, especially given this site’s demonstrated desire to get rid of Trump (though commendable, but in this case should be a whole other issue).

    • Anyone who thinks Antifa would frame protestors against police brutality by causing damage to make protestors look bad, has no clue. The ones with the biggest problem with antifa is the white supremacist movement. It is very easy to track. Highly visible. Glaring even.

    • Bullshit, I’ve seen a lot of cell phone videos, including college aged white “privileged” girls calmly spray painting graffiti on buildings. These are not all paid for actors, and you have absolutely no personal knowledge of what you claim, only bias confirmation you read on echo chambers. So, don’t be calling anyone clueless, you pompous jackass! Didn’t you learn your lesson from “serenus”?

  3. Thank God for you Veterans Today. Justice and peace for these good Antifa people (mostly kids?) who are being targeted by the President of the United States and his Deep State brethren.

    Stay blessed and be strong Antifa.

    As for the President, he should be arrested with those Atlanta policemen.

    • I rather think the “fa” in Antifa stands for First Amendment. It seems anything they do not agree with gets labeled as fascist. The ADL likes them; so does the SPLC. that should raise some eyebrows. Also, their flag is a copy of the German Communist Party (1926-33) flag. I’m always suspicious of groups who define themselves by what they are against, not what they are for.

    • I should also mention the Zionist Jews love Antifa too. Don’t forget the Zionist game plan always includes playing both ends against the middle; bolsheviks on the left, and neocons on the right. Have a nice day!

  4. Not for nothing, but the ADL supports Antifa:
    and the SPLC says designating Antifa as domestic terroist is dangerous:
    not only that, but the Antifa flag is the same as that of the German Communist Party, 1932-33, pictured here on the building: http://archive.vn/0woC1
    I know Trump is the boogeyman, but that should set off some red flags.
