Report: Bill Barr orders prosecutors to ‘be aggressive’ with violent protesters

Attorney General Bill Barr has ordered federal prosecutors to escalate pressure on violent protesters by charging them with sedition and other criminal statutes. 

The Wall Street Journal reported that Barr told prosecutors to crack down on the violence in a conference call with U.S. attorneys last week, according to “people familiar with the conversation.”

The Trump administration has recently ramped up pressure on the out-of-control protests that have wracked the nation for months. Barr reportedly told prosecutors on the call to “be aggressive” with protesters. He even suggested charging them with plotting the overthrow the U.S. government.

Just The News reported:

The pertinent statute would fall under the U.S. Code section that deals with seditious conspiracy.

The 18 U.S. Code subsection 2384 statue reads as follows.

“If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.”

During the conference call with prosecutors, Barr reportedly warned that violent demonstrations could grow worse leading up to the November elections.

Barr has not publically commented on directing the Justice Department to ratchet up pressure on violent rioters.

  1. Great job AG Barr, that’s exactly what these “anarchists/BLM/Antifa deserve, plus good lengthy jail sentences. Also need to round up their supporters, Soros and friends and charge them also.

      1. Bring it on Mo Fo’s, we’re locked and loaded!!! You probably better take your overflowing pampers and run back home to mommies basement before you REALLY get hurt!!!

          1. I would suggest – for your personal well being – that you make sure you call 911 and say you are “under siege and fear for your life”, then – if you wish – let them hear your first shot (s) !!

      2. Pelosi told Biden not to concede under any circumstances. The Blue states have said that it may take months to count the mail in votes.
        Under the Constitution, if there is no resolution as to the winner of the election by the time the current President’s term ends, the Speaker of the House becomes President until such time as the election results are resolved.
        Thus, Nancy becomes President by default because the votes will NOT be counted by the end of Trump’s term in office.

        1. THERES MORE TO IT THAN THAT!!!! THE REPUBLICANS CAN VOTE, SINCE THEY HOLD THE MAJORITY, and then if that doesn’t work, then the speaker becomes the TEMPORARY PRESIDENT. BUT I DOUBT THAT THE SENSTE WILL LET THAT HAPPEN!!!

        2. Interesting comments Roger Mayer. That’s a scary thought, but adds some logic to Nancy’s comment to Sleepy Joe not to concede.
          I’m not very adept at researching stuff like this, so Robert do you have any source that supports speaker of the house becoming a temporary president?

        3. Glad someone else realizes that. That’s one of the Democrats plan in place. Thing’s are not going the way they had planned as to date. If they fail on bringing Trump down before election time, then they’ll fall back to just, right out steal the election with the mess they are purposely creating at the end. Most people I’m finding are not aware of the little unknown.

          1. I was going to say the same thing. But the 2 butt heads do think alike or killery was just saying it for her! They have even more evil plans, we must stop them what ever way WE CAN! The FRAUD mail ins have already started.

        4. WRONG…. remember the house will be null and void too. They will be sworn in on the 3rd. And then the speakers has to be declared. And it is not a sure thing that Pelosi will be there any longer.

    1. They must be punished severely for their actions. Apologies NOT accepted. Their actions must be dealt with swiftly, harshly, and publicly as an example to the rest of them. They must learn that their behavior will not be tolerated. You can only turn the other cheek so many times.

      1. They are tyrants and you know what they used to do to tyrants here in America when it was a great country they hung them. Bring that back and you will see this corrupt government stop dead in their evil tracks and stop doing the evil high crimes they are committing against We The People and our great country.

    2. democrats like biden and phony harris need to quit bailing out these paid criminals so they can do more harm , harris and biden need to be arrested for aiding and abetting

  2. Arrest all the protesters put them in Prison and throw away the key, don’t give them privileges. Isn’t treason a punishable crime that is the death penalty????????????

      1. That will not work cause most will be deserters and just go awol . Too scared to fight real men and would join Our enemies overseas . Hang them high and broadcast executions , it is time to harvest the sick .

        1. From one jarhead to another I tend to agree with you. As long as these pussies hang out in what I consider gangs, they have all kinds of guts. Get them alone and they have no balls at all. In my humble opinion, those folks that attack law enforcement, regardless of the weapon, law enforcement should use lethal force.

          1. Roger that ! Did you see the video of the lone (as in caught and separated from the rest of the “gang”) Antifa who cried when he was arrested ?

  3. Thank God our president isn’t doing nothing to solve the problem and quite frankly we are sick at the lack of help the innocent people are getting. Throw the mayors & Governors out of office they do nothing useless crap. They would rather disrespect our President than do their job.

  4. Amen! It’s long overdue to put the bite on these Marxists, Anarchists, and their Treasonous Acts of Insurrection. And that includes District/States Attorneys; Judges; Mayors; Governors, and financiers. And let’s not forget about corrupt politicians either.

  5. I’m not sure if they know what that means. It sure would be fun to be there when they figure it out or someone explains it to them.

  6. I completely agree with all the posts, everyone hit the nail on the head!!! Great job AG Barr, keep moving forward on these totally Un-American bully wimps, they deserve what they get in the worst way!

  7. “If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States,”
    Has anyone bothered to compare this to BLM’s stated intent on their web page? If so, why are you not rounding them up already?
    Then once you have all the foot soldiers rounded up, don’t stop. Keep going, and get their money men. The Millionaires and Billionaires funding this disgraceful state of affairs are the real issue. Once they are detained freeze all their accounts to put a stop to this. Once the money stops flowing to these mobs of fools, then the mobs will disappear.

    “to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States”
    Sounds to me like this could and should be applied to many Democrat politicians who seek to destroy our Constitutional Rights such as our 2A Rights. Again funded by the same Billionaires who are buying politicians to get their will installed as law in place of our Constitutional Rights.

    1. I just tried to reply to this post but the powers that be don’t want the truth to get out what’s happening in this country..

  8. About time. i hope they also go after the mayors and governors who permit the rioting and also the ones who refuse to follow americas immigration laws

  9. SOUNDS GOOD!!!!!! BUT…….AMERICANS NEED TO SEE THAT JUSTICE IS DONE!!!!!!!! NOT JUST TALK??????????? YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY???????? “TALK IS CHEAP”!!!!!!!! “ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS”………… LET GET ON WITH SOMETHING “REAL”………

  10. this should have been happening all along, and Barr should have told the demon rat a.d.’s that if they didn’t follow instructions, they would face the penalty. that would have stopped a lot of this schiff in its tracks. the judge in Pa. should get a medal. I bet the rest of the low-life demonstrators, ie, rioters schiffed their pants on the way out of town. and all along I thought Lancaster was just Amish……. way to go, Pa. vote IN PERSON this November and make all choices RED. go Trump, 4 more wonderful years of sanity in government…. MAGA. KAG. one more thing to drive the demon rats nuts, every time you see a pop=up asking the question why are you voting demon rat? I fill them out, but with Trump answers….. would like to see the faces of the people who have to record my responses… hehehehehehe

  11. Don’t think these maroons will be getting a participation award or 75 well used non-virgins of left leaning persuasion. Keep putting your hand in the fire for more information. This time it’s gonna hurt.

  12. I absolutely agree with the sentiment of the article and do not want to piss on anyone’s parade but a couple things that come to mind reading this is:
    It starts of with a heading of:
    Report: Bill Barr orders prosecutors to ‘be aggressive’ with violent protesters
    By Ann Turner on September 16,2020
    Attorney General Bill Barr has ordered federal prosecutors to escalate pressure on violent protesters by charging them with sedition and other criminal statutes.
    The Wall Street Journal reported that Barr told prosecutors to crack down on the violence in a conference call with U.S. attorneys last week, according to “people familiar with the conversation.”
    (What people familiar with the conversation)
    Barr reportedly told prosecutors on the call to “be aggressive” with protesters and even charging them with plotting the overthrow the U.S. government. ???(Reportedly)??? Reported by whom???
    Barr has not publicaly commented on directing the Justice Department to ratchet up pressure on violent rioters. Hope I’m not being too critical but some information
    seems to be missing here.

  13. It’s time for Democrats to own up to there evil ways. It’s going to take Republicans to counter these Dems on the street. These punks will be so out numbered but now we have the go ahead to make real change. I’m with Barr but now we can do it. See ya mommy boys

  14. Think about the billion dollar mess they left in America? Are the demon-crates who allowed this gonna fork the bill? Are we the tax payers going to fix it? Who ok’d this to happen? The Trump Administration need to start more indictments. Maybe look into deporting a certain terrorist and his family back to Hungary.

  15. There is plenty of proof out there, on videos, etc. It IS their plan to take down our government . And if they can’t they will BURN it down!

  16. The democrates aided with bail , and should be held accountable for their protesting ways against Americans . Funding B L M doesn’t protect America . It protects Marxist demonology wow ! And antifa , and to defund the police departments. Is unhealthy for all of Americans .

  17. Take Biden,Harris,Pelosi and the rest of the Democrat in Congress and Lock them up,since they did nothing to stop this riot,but enforced it . THEY LET IT HAPPEN THEY ARE NOTHING BUT RIOT BUNCH OF CITY RATS!!!!!!!!

  18. I was hoping maybe Barr’s hot shot prosecutor would bag more than just one measly FBI lawyer after all that investigating..but nope…the dems get away again… Can’t believe it!

  19. Approve of AG Barr’s current policy but why did it take over 100 days of ongoing riots in Portland, Ore., 3 months in Seattle & NYC, decades in Chicago that have wreaked havoc, chaos, untold destruction, fear and terror on their residents, not to mention the resultant idleness, joblessness & commerce stoppage.
