Inside Team Trump's Bizarre Scheme to Treat Protesters Like Mob Bosses - 2020-09-03
President Donald Trump and other top government officials teased a new, conspiracy-fueled crackdown on Black Lives Matter and antifascist protesters this week. Their legal grounds to do so are shaky—but the underlying threat is real.
In a Monday Fox News interview, acting Department of Homeland Security chief Chad Wolf, a villain on the left for his agents' use of unmarked vans to detain people in Portland, Oregon, suggested using a racketeering law to go after activists.
In a Tuesday Fox News interview, President Donald Trump suggested, without evidence, that activists were being paid to fly to protests, and said the alleged incident was "under investigation right now."
