AG Barr Pressured to Ratchet Up Investigations of Rioters
Over the weekend, Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) and Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) asked the Justice Department to cut off funds and any kind of organizational support for violent groups that have been rioting and destroying cities nationwide for months.
In a Fox News op-ed, Paul wrote that “[L]aw enforcement needs to look at the funding of violent criminal activity like this. And national Democrats need to confront it. It’s organized. It’s paid for. It’s violent. It’s not about Black lives or any lives; it’s about anarchy and destruction.” Paul and his wife were accosted by a mob after leaving the White House on Thursday night after the conclusion of the RNC.
Buck supported Paul’s call for ramped up investigations, tweeting that “[T]he Justice Department needs to open an investigation into who is funding these violent riots.”

According to Just the News, “[C]onservative pressure is mounting on Attorney General William Barr and his Justice Department to ratchet up investigations of violent rioters across the country, specifically to identify those funding and organizing the mayhem.”
Hopefully the DOJ is acting and will help put an end to the mayhem soon enough. The country cannot take much more of this.
