President Donald Trump, senior Justice Department officials, and Republican lawmakers have amplified the theory in recent weeks that the far-left group "antifa" is infiltrating protests against police brutality to stoke violence.

A closer examination of media reports, public records, intelligence assessments, and social media activity shows little evidence of a widespread or coordinated effort by antifa to weaponize the protests.

One investigation into court records of those arrested in connection to the protests show that the majority of those charged are local residents trying to take advantage of the chaos.
