Barr: Justice Department is issuing ‘scores’ of indictments to violent protesters

Attorney General Bill Barr just announced that the Justice Department has issued “scores of indictments” against perpetrators of acts of violence and vandalism during the last month of nationwide protests. 

Appearing in an episode of Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) podcast, Verdict, Barr said that his agency is using joint terrorist task forces nationwide to probe criminal activity that has risen in the wake of the George Floyd protests.

“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 told Cruz on Thursday.

And now they are starting to go full bore, cranking out investigations, indictments against the people who are involved in this violence,” Barr continued. “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.”

Trump’s base has been calling for the administration to take definitive action against ANTIFA and adjacent rioters for weeks now, and Barr has confirmed that the requests are not going unheard.

He also confirmed that there are organized groups behind the violence. “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.

“We definitely see signs out on the street of communication, of organization, of preplanning, prepositioning of things. So it’s definitely organized activity.”

  1. The rioters are terrorists. They are paid thugs to bring this country down. They need to be arrested and charged accordingly. The looters are criminals that see an opportunity to carry out their dastardly deeds. Let justice prevail!

  2. To not know this IS an organized event, you’d have to be deaf, dumb, and blind!! Unfortunately, I consider anyone crazy enough to tear their country to pieces not only DUMB, BUT UNCIVILIZED!! That goes mostly for the PELOSI GANG!!

  3. The sole reason for this rioting and destruction of our history and monuments is to create a revolutionary war in order to put the Socialists in charge. They are removing our history, good and bad, so that we no longer have a base for our loyalties and end up striking down those we disagree with and who are ‘differant’ than the majority of us and we end up with socialism. Not gonna happen in this country as we have too many people who can see through this game and are willing, (and able), to stop it, by force if necessary.

  4. Try this again as it wasn’t posted the first time,

  6. Can someone please indict Pelosi..she is promoting violence. Thanx for starting indictments,, Dems are showing their evil ways more each day.I contacted my local mayor to beware of so called protests.BLM is communistic..and the Dems hired them

  7. AG BARR and his task force will process the indictments, but when they appear before Democrat Liberal judges nothing will happen. Therein lies the greatest problem we, the American People, face. A justice system that is politically driven is no justice system at all. We would be better off sending every socialist liberal anti-american back to whatever country they originated in or thought was so great. The country has bent over after the civil war and days of required civil rights. But it is never enough and all people suffer because of these BLM, ANTIFA, Socialist and Liberal minded riots. The real protesters have reason, but they have been overtaken by the radical hate mongers.

  8. I think it is a good start, but I would like to see investigations into the instigators in the swamp-and if you do not know who they are, ask the people-they do. It will be effective when we are shown these thugs in orange suits, shackled and led away to solitary confinement or the execution of them-and not wait 10 years or more for the switch to be thrown or the needle to be injected. Federal Prison, hard labor, no parole, lifetime sentences. When we see that, then we will know you mean business. When we see the Clintons, Obamas, Bidens, Pelosi, Omar, AOC ,Comey, Schiff Nadler and the entire elite Deep State walked out of a courtroom headed for prison, THEN I will believe that there is justice in this country. If only a few token folks without power, or a few low level govt workers are imprisoned, then we will know absolutely that there is NO JUSTICE to be found in the USA anymore. And that is the death knell of the republic. Civil War follow anarchy, and a dictator rises. That is my prediction, based on history. We do not study history, so we are bound to repeat it.

  9. This was and is longer protesting we have to get the people behind this and charge them with treason the whole of the D. N C and there big funders are behind this the time has come for the people on the right to start pushing back and take control mr. president this will take the military I fear and it won’t be
    pretty the silent majority is fed up this is the final straw if the generals don’t join the right then they are involved with the democrats this will most likely end with civil war

  10. THe DOJ is making a good start to put the lawless renegade terrorists behind bars. At some point, enough will be behind bars and the reign of terror will cease.

  11. I was beginning to think that all this violence was just going to continue. So glad to hear that something is finally being done to these people. Black Lives Matter is a farse, I believe the true root of this issue is to uproot Trump. The Democrats are the ones that are going to be uprooted! I could have not heard better news today!

  12. This was dessert served on a silver salver!!!! High time…. justice should throw the book at them….I hope they will be ugly talking parrots and shout out the names of the big wig Demonrats behind this horror and treason and evil works ….they have terrorised the American Citizens …. after nearly 3 months of lockdown , trying to pick up the pieces to carry on with life….. oh the evil of our own countrymen…. BLM is an excuse the people who masterminded and financed these terror mongers should go down too……..

  13. I hope it stops the Violence. Our downtown area had Stacks of bricks arrive close to the Police Department????? Convenient!

  14. All this violence, rioting and destruction is the product of political correctness, which is the Democrats primary policy but unfortunately it, is not the kind of thing that would sustain peace and harmony. It is too easy for people to make a life or well fair. IDOL MINDS IS THE DEVILS PLAYGROUND!!!!

  15. Out of curiosity, if someone pays a rioter does that make the rioter a mercenary? If so, are there laws that really deal with them? I’m pretty sure other countries deal quite harshly with them.

    1. Irene…. you have a good question. There’s a good possibility that payment received by the rioter is paid for by and individual or group then it could be considered a mercenary.

  16. So glad to know I am not alone in my thoughts and opinions. I also believe the IatS need to fix it data base so another million. Dead people don’t get additional checks. That is a real soar subject with me!!

    1. In the Democrates evilness, dead people vote. Their next agenda is to rig the election. Impeach Bill Barr. Every dark concept in their minds you can think of. If it is wrong to them it is correct.

  17. The longer this terrorism goes on, the more good people and their lives are erased. It is time for the radical Left Democrats to be eliminated.
    Our President knows who they are and how to affect this closure. The Silent Majority is tired and saddened to watch our laws ignored, and Police Officer’ lives injured or killed. It’s time for the nonsense, unruly and treasonous action of the riotous mob to our American citizens cease.
    This is no longer logical or legal … Time for ACTION!
    President Trump is Our President, now and for 4 more years – Point!

    1. I would love to eliminate the radical left Democrats. I will be voting for Trump in 2020. It comes down to two things. Voting for Trump and remain a Constitutional Republic with freedoms intact or vote Democrat and be under Socialism the rest of your life. Why would anyone wish to give up their freedoms? Not me.

  18. Yes, I believe this action will deter additional disruption and anarchy from thugs who have no concern for anyone. they need to be locked up and pay restitution to those who lost so much over their foolishness. These THUGS have got away for too long. No one is holding them in their location…AMERICA LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT…NO PROBLEM CHOOSE

    A. S. A. P.

  19. I’m not sure it will stop the violence because there is so much money and many selfish greedy haters behind this entire fiasco. They just won’t let go until they have destroyed our Republic. If Justice can get these scum to turn on the head people, ie Soros, the Clinton/Obuma Cartel etc, then we have a great chance to stop this. But until we can stop this with these big money machines, it will be on going and too many people will still be at risk.

  20. It brings back faith in our judicial system. I saw some get very depressed by what was going on in our country. It was as if the Democrats were winning in destroying our great nation & were winning in getting their way to socialism. Lock up all who were destroying people’s dreams & make them work & get these businesses back up & running using their resources & hard work to do it. Get whatever money source was funding the destruction of our history. Sores, Clinton, Obama, or Gates, etc. & lock them up also, without bail.

  21. It will only be good when they are prosecuted and imprisoned. These are domestic terrorists and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law

  22. The low life trash that make up the BLM, Antifa and the Democratic Party are home grown terrorist, their actions are terrorist attacks on our nation and should be met with lethal force. I feel we should defund blue states that are terrorist havens, defund their schools that have become terrorist training camps. No federal tax dollars should be used for any college’s Ivy League included that are known Terrorist training camps. This trash society has to be destroyed it’s them or us

  23. All those who were involved in violence and destruction during the riots that can be identified should be prosecuted and sentenced to the maximum prison term. If the punishment is harsh enough it will slow this madness down. Theses investigations and punishments should be conducted rapidly before we allow mob rule to decide our conduct as Newsom is advocating.

  24. Time for WE THE PEOPLE to stand up and hold all these TRAITORS accountable. Dems and Rinos will do NOTHING. They secretly support them and send them their marching orders and those orders are to attack.

  25. This has got to stop everyone thinks they can get away with not abiding to the law. It’s like I can get away with lawlessness and they can’t get everyone. But are you going to be the lucky one of not. I hope your not the lucky one.
