Steube Sends Letter to AG Barr Requesting Further Investigation into Organized ANTIFA Violence

WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Representative Greg Steube (R-Fla.) recently joined colleagues in sending a letter to Attorney General William Barr at the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) urging further investigations and actions to end recent ANTIFA violence.

“The organized violence we have seen over the past 90 days continues and is encouraged by left-wing leaders,” Steube said. “It started with destroying property, converting peaceful protests into riots and spreading hate. Now, this hate has escalated to fuel deadly attacks on police officers and citizens caught in the carnage. A weak condemnation of the violence is not enough – we need to put all of government resources into the fight to stop the violence once and for all.”

Recently in the Portland, Oregon riots, an ANTIFA supporter Michael F. Reinoehl shot and killed a Trump supporter. This is one of the many displays of ANTIFA violence across the U.S. in recent months. House Democrats still refuse to acknowledge or denounce the violence from left-wing extremists.

Over the weekend, two sheriff deputies, a 24-year-old male and a 31-year-old mother, were ambushed and critically injured in Compton. This follows the shooting death of a Cleveland police officer earlier this month.
