Barr reportedly investigating federal charges for Seattle mayor

The Justice Department is reportedly probing avenues with which to bring federal charges against far-left Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan for her refusal to control the so-called “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” and the ensuing chaos in June.

Durkan repeatedly repudiated offers from Donald Trump to send in federal law enforcement officers to help control the shocking violence but also refused to allow city police to even reclaim their precinct that was overtaken by protesters in the autonomous zone.

Attorney General Bill Barr has had enough of Democrat mayors’ and governors’ refusal to take control of their own cities and streets and has reportedly asked the DOJ’s civil rights division to investigate whether Durkan could be liable for federal charges.

Barr has also reportedly tasked federal prosecutors with cracking down on rioters, asking them to consider charging rioters with sedition and insurrection against the federal government.

Durkan infamously responded to reports of looting, vigilante justice, and intimidation of CHAZ residents by downplaying concerns. Durkan said the zone had a “block party atmosphere” and that “we could have the Summer of Love” if the CHAZ was allowed to continue.

Just weeks later, violence in CHOP escalated, resulting in the deaths of a 16-year-old boy and a 19-year-old man in two separate shoot-outs that also critically injured two others.

Durkan finally relented after a third shooting critically injured two more, allowing then-police chief Carmen Best to re-establish a police presence in the area, but the damage was done. Durkan’s decision to allow the takeover of an entire block of her city resulted in several deaths and untold damage and Bill Barr wants her to face consequences.

        1. yep, Robert, and NY and everywhere there were riots allowed! Those responsible for allowing it and for not asking for federal help, that President Trump offered over and over to stop the riots should have to pay for all the repair for all the damage with their current budgets! no taxpayer bail out here! See how it is to live within your means, and see how it is to pay for an “unexpected emergency” not that the riots were, but in a normal person’s life we all have to find a way to take care of the real” unexpected emergencies” Why should citizens have to pay for deliberate rioting looting and burning of their cities and towns when those elected to protect them did not? Maybe they would think twice before letting it happen again! They could make the people funding the riots pay them back after they use their budgets to fix it all!

        1. ABSOLUTELY hopefully the bunch of them will go to jail for what they did. their job IS to protect their cities! I also believe that the taxpayers of our nation SHOULD NOT PAY A CENT to rebuild anyplace that the riots were allowed, let the budgets of those places pay for it! They allowed it they should pay for it out of their own budgets, not mine, yours or anyone else’s ! (If we do something to damage our yard out of stupidity we have to pay for the repair! same idea)

          1. Agreed. But I doubt that all the culprits will go to jail….it’s just the ugly truth. But what I do believe WILL happen is that all of the dangerous nonsense will be halted very soon after the election.

          2. Agree completely Linda, well said. Don’t the mayors and governors take an oath to uphold the constitution of the United States? I wouldn’t say they did that either. By not doing that they should be immediately removed from office as well as all the other fools who marched with the rioters and protesters. Pelosi, Romney etc

      1. And should be made to pay damages for the destruction and loss of life, salarries for those put out of woek because of their negligence.

      2. Of course. There are a staggeringly large number Democrat governors, mayors and city counsel members who need to be charged with their illegal actions.

    1. As far as I concerned these politicians excepted the responsibility TO GOVERN when they go into office its their job to protect and serve just like the police. And by sitting back and watching their town burn and their people to be killed makes them an accessory to distruction of property and to the deaths or injuries of the people they swore to serve

  1. these out of control people “in control” in these riot filled cities need to be held accoutable. Innocent people are being impacted, some paying with their lives, their businesses their peace of mind. This is AMERICA THE LAND OF THE FREE. Not a 3rd world coumtry where the thugs, murders & molesters roam free, much like the buffalos did before they were “fenced in> Shame on us for allowing this to go on for so long.

    If we do not get control now it will be total destruction after Donald Truck wins in November cities will burn & good people will die

      1. For the state government, people need to get off their duffs and push out the garbage and elect responsible people. So far Dems have proven repeatedly THEY can’t be trusted to protect our laws our constitution or respect our choices or our religious beliefs. They consider the American people stupid and unable to make the right choices.

    1. O’K, totally agree with you in your first paragraph, but the second paragraph? You are wrong!!! You better hope and pray Trump gets in or your city will never be the same AGAIN!! Trump is the one fighting for you all and offered help many, many times, but your ridiculous mayor and governor won’t allow it!!!! DEMOCRATS!!!! STUBBORN!!! Trump2020🇺🇸

    2. You fool… the President isn’t the problem. The problem is happening in cities with democrats in charge… wake up! You better vote for Trump or this is your new normal..

  2. I am so glad you published this situation and I hope it sends a message to those left wing nutty mayors who have allowed this to cost live and private property

  3. IT IS TIME FOR SCHOOLS TO BRING BACK HISTORY BOOKS THAT TAUGHT ABOUT ALL THE WARS, PRESIDENTS ,& NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE FLAG & CAPITOLS OF EACH STATE. ALSO TO TEACH GEOGRAPHY FOR KNOWLEDGE OF CONTINENTS, OCEANS ETC.ALSO , CIVICS STRONGLY NEEDED SO OUR CHILDREN KNOW HOW GOVERMENT RUNS.IN THE FIFTIES MY SISTER ;A TEACHER IN N.Y WAS ASKED TO TEACH COMMUNISM.

ALSO DURING THAT TIME AS A PTA PRESIDENT; WHILE SETTING A POLIO CLINIC AT NIGHT, AN FBI AGENT TOOK BOOKS FROM SCHOOL THOUGHT TO BE TEACHING COMMUNISM.MARXISM HAS BEEN BEING TAUGHT FOR OVER 50 YEARS. 10 OF 11 UNIVERSITY PROFFERS ARE DEMOCRATS. IT HAS CREPT UP ON US &HIDDEN. NOW IT IS OPENLY BOLD.THIS IS WHAT HAS ALLOWED PEOPLE TO BE CHOSEN IN GOVERMENT POSITIONS. PROSECUTE PEOPLE LIKE DURKAN!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. AMEN Dottie!!!!! Couldn’t have said it better myself!!!!! This is the United States of America!!! Keep our history!!! Do not let the Lefties get in or we are in big trouble!!!!! Trump2020🇺🇸

    2. My high school in FL required the course, Americanism vs. Communism your junior or senior year. That was 1963-64. Patriotism was important. Daily pledge and devotional.

      1. If any of you have kids in 7th-senior high school you need to get real American History and teach them the truth yourself. What the schools are teaching is not the truth.

  5. If you vote a communist into office, that’s what you get…….that’s exactly what you’re going to get it you vote Biden and Harris into office…… but nation wide!!

  6. I do not understand how these governors who support this violent behavior are allowed to continue in their positions. If any citizen had that poor of work performance, they would be given three warnings and then they would be fired. I can understand being caught in a catch 22 in the beginning when they were trying to allow freedom of speech and right to protest, but as we all saw it turn into demonic violence, any person of sound mind would not continue to endorse this evil. Do we want persons who persist in ignorance to occupy offices in government?

    1. If any of us other than the violent rioters committed crimes, we would be locked up. You do the crime you do the time in prison speak.

  7. Ted Wheeler Mayor of Portland Oregon, and the useless Governor Kate Brown both should be in jail. Not only for the rioting but also for the fires set by Antifa all over our state.

  8. If what these governors and mayors isn’t illegal, it should be! I am usually not in favor of more laws and regulations, but I think such dereliction of their duties reason for prosecution at a federal level!

    1. Scotty: WE don’t need more laws. In fact a few times we could do with less laws. What we need is leaders who follow the law! And this they should be made to do. I’m all for prosecuting, jailing, fining etc. all the governors and mayors and even the city counsels if need be who have allowed these rioters to ruin everything. Barr is right they should be charged on sedition charges. Its time too that our national congress be purged.

      What’s also needed is to do away with these so called federal bureau’s who make rules call them laws. These people were never voted into office and most of their regulations etc. were never voted on either.

  9. It is time to hold these Mayors and Governors and other officials to the oaths on the bible to up hold the laws of their jurisdiction. They think they can just make up their own rules, and forget about the citizens and their needs! If they won’t they need to go to prison!

  10. All mayor’s in city’s helping violation us law by hiding hindering custom from deporting illegals should be prosecuted also

  11. These Mayors and Governors are sworn to uphold laws and protect their cities and citizens . They allowed people to be murdered and the killers face no consequences. They should face the consequences for their lack of doing what they were sworn in office to do .

  12. THE VOTERS ELECTED THIS GOVERNOR & MAYOR. VOTE THEM OUT I WON’T BE SURPRISED IF THEY VOTE THEM BACK THE VOTERS IN THOSE STATES ARE LEFTIST. I ALSO BLAMED THE PARENTS OF THE KIDS THAT GOT KILLED FOR LETTING THEIR KIDS GO OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT KNOWING ITS DANGEROUS. NOW THEY ARE SUING AND HANNITY IS GIVING THEM ALL THE EMPATHY IN THE WORLD. STUPID LEADERS AND IRRESPONSIBLE PARENTS!!!!! WHAT EVER HAPPENS TO DISCIPLINE?

  13. Durkin should be charged with malfeasance and dereliction of duty. The entire city of Seattle should be checked for brain damage for tolerating Durkin. Maybe there’s something in the water?

  14. Prosecute the mayors, governors and every single participant and enabler as domestic terrorists. That is exactly what they are. It’s nice they will get due process while they hold the country hostage. Treason, sedition, domestic terrorists. ALL OF THEM. EVERY SINGLE ENABLER and participant must be stopped, prosecuted and jailed. We the people are being terrorized daily while this insanity is a political game? Use any resource to bring those responsible to true justice so we can all live free once more. Until then we are held hostage as a nation. Treason, sedition. Use military tribunals if necessary. Those governors and mayors who tolerate this are guilty of every crime committed on their “watch”. Their hypocrisy is boundless. Prosecute and jail. It’s really better than they deserve

  15. FACTS ARE FACTS:

    THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IS VERY TIRED OF MORE THAN 3 & 1/2 + OF INVESTIGATIONS SPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO THE HEADS OF THE SATANIC SNAKE THAT HAVE DESTROYED OUR HOME LAND.

    WHEN THEY PUT A DEPLORABLE IN JAIL THEY DO IT IN LESS THAN A WEEK ONCE THEY SINGLE OUT AN INDIVIDUAL, AND THEIR COURT TIME IS DONE IN LESS THAN 6 WKS.

    SO THE QUESTION IS WHY ARE WE GIVING ALL THIS PRIVILEDGE TO THESE BASTARDS THAT HAVE CAUSE AND STILL CAUSING SO MUCH CHAOS NOT ONLY IN AMERICA BUT AROUND THE PLANET EARTH.

    SPECIALLY WHEN EVERYBODY AND THEIR DOG HAVE KNOWN FOR DECADES WHO THE CRIMINALS HAVE BEEN ALL ALONG, WE DO NOT NEED ANY MORE PROOF OF WHO THE CRIMINALS ARE THEY ARE EVERY WHERE WHERE POWER IS EVEN WITHIN OUR POLICE FORCES WHO WERE NEVER DESIGNED TO ENFORCE LAWS THEY DO NOT EVEN UNDERSTAND BUT INTERPRET ACORDING TO THEIR OWN PREJUDIST BELIEVES AND AGENDAS SET FOR THEM TO FOLLOW BY THE HEADS OF OUR DOMESTIC ENEMIES. PEOPLE NEED TO START SEEN REAL EXECUTIONS OF ALL THESE CRIMINALS IN ORDER TO TRULY BRING THE FEAR OF GOD TO THOSE THAT HAVE NOT BUT ARE PLANNING ON CAUSING MORE HARM TO OUR SOCIAL FABRIC, SEEN THAT CRIMINALS CAN LIVE ABOVE THE LAW FOR SO LONG THAT THEY DIE AFTER LIVING A LIFE OF CRIMES WHILE LIVING LIKE KINGS AND QUEENS.

  16. They all should be put in Jail, they are in office to keep the people of that city safe. They failed . These Mayors are Satin under cover. These Mayors have FAILED their City, Their State and this Country,

  17. Every governor and mayor who betray the trust of the citizens who elected them should face serious charges and severe punishment. Every “judge/justice” who has betrayed the Constitution and/or laws of their states or federal should be arrested and also face the most serious charges and punishment they can.

    This so past due!

  18. start with the leaders, that is the senate and house Pelosi and Schumer and all the weak minded senators and house that do what they tell them what to do and say, instead of doing the right thing for those that voted for them to make there lives better. all they want is to line there pockets with the peoples money. check for yourself they come in with little and leave millionaires, where do you think that came from ? your pocket.

  19. Think there will be room for Hilariously in the same cell. Their little make believe world will soon come crashing down. You reap what you sow.

  20. “ALL” THE MAYORS, GOVERNORS, COUNCIL COMM, OF THE STATES WHERE ALL THE VIOLENCE HAS TAKEN PLACE…..SHOULD BE PUT IN PRISON FOR DERELICTION OF THE “DUTY” THAT THEY “ALL” TOOK AN OATH TO UPHOLD!!!!!!!!!! THEY LET ALL THE PEOPLE GO THAT WERE ARRESTED……SO THESE SO CALLED OFFICIALS SHOULD GO TO PRISON IN THEIR PLACE……..NOT TO MENTION……..ALL BE FINED TO COMPENSATE FOR SOME OF THE LOSSES OF DESTRUCTION!!!!!!!!!!!! IF OUR LAWS WERE FOLLOWED…….THIS IS WHAT WOULD TAKE PLACE!!!!!!!!!!! LOCK THEM UP IN “ALL OF THESE CITIES????????

  21. “Durkan infamously responded to reports of looting, vigilante justice, and intimidation of CHAZ residents by downplaying concerns. Durkan said the zone had a “block party atmosphere” and that “we could have the Summer of Love” if the CHAZ was allowed to continue.”
    Did anyone really believe that back at the time it was floated?
    I’ve only been to one block party many years ago and I didn’t make it to Woodstock but how this idiot got Summer of Love out that disaster I’d just like to know. And the only fire we had at our block party was contained on the ground and suitable for hotdogs and marshmallows. Don’t recall any buildings burning down or anyone shot. Wow! How things have changed!
    MAGA 2020

  22. AG Barr, You talk talk talk tough, but We The People are not seeing any results!! It’s past time to Talk and start prosecuting!!!!!

    1. I am sure AG Barr is setting up for the kill. These things have to be done exactly right or the violators walk. Too bad the process is not faster, but that is they way it is.

  23. Durham betrayed her city, and the residents! She did not honor her oath of office, did not protect the city, wouldn’t back the police, and let blm and antifa run amok! Time for her to answer for her crimes! She should be prosecuted at the federal and state levels. Convict her, lock her up along with all the thugs arrested for looting, burning, killing, raping and destruction! She should pay for her crimes right along with them! The people need to stand up and say NO MORE! This is OUR country, we need to take it back and get the “ bad actors” out! Vote RED, stop the insanity!!

  24. It’s about time Barr took a stand on these idiots. if you will ,Democratic leaders there’s more to do Mister Barr you’ve got New York Michigan Illinois Indiana California. Newsome is just out of his mind.not to mention Nancy Pelosi , Biden, and his son ,the Obama’s let’s not forget Soros ,OAC ,and her daughter to name a few

  25. AG BARR, YOU WERE HIRED TO DO A JOB, SO DO YOUR JOB! IF YOU DON’T DO SOMETHING SOON THE DEMORATS WILL INFECT THE WHOLE UNITED STATES. THESE TOILET CITIES, PORTLAND, NYC, SEATTLE, L.A.,DETROIT, ALL NEED TO BE FLUSHED. GET RID OF THE S**T NOW!

  26. The mayors are not the only ones that should be investigated and charged. How about the dem lawmakers whom openly encouraged the rioters to continue their rampages. The rule of law appears to be fading fast in support of the Constitution.

  27. Don’t forget Wheeler she is as bad or worse keeping all her people in lock down all this time. She needs to be in jail now. Awful person.

  28. This inept mayor should be removed from office immediately and never be allowed to run again in any state or town and these thugs ought to be charged and arrested for the mayhem they have cause and have to pay for it. Their rich parents will help them out.

  29. Get it done. She and the rest of the city and county government along with teh governor ALL need to be in jail for their complicity in the mob’s crimes. Same for Portland and the other lib run meccas being fouled by the trash.
