DHS: Feds 'Targeting and Investigating' BLM & Antifa Leaders and Those Who Fund Them
Heads of Black Lives Matter under investigation by Department of Justice
The Department of Justice (DOJ) is "targetting and investigating" the leaders of Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and other violent leftist groups, the Department of Homeland Security has confirmed.
Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf told Fox News’s Tucker Carlson on Monday night that the DOJ is also going after those who are funding the radical-left protest groups behind the national unrest and rioting.
The Justice Department has already launched an investigation into the heads of BLM and Antifa over their roles in the violence that has broken out in Democrat-controlled cities across America.
Wolf began the segment by responding to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's suggestion that there would be more violence if President Donald Trump won re-election.
He slammed 77-year-old Biden as “delusional” over the claims.

“Do you think the Department of Homeland Security is getting the help it needs from the Justice Department?” Carlson later asked Wolf.
“Why haven’t we seen the leaders of Antifa and BLM arrested and charged with conspiracy under RICO like the heads of the mafia families were?” he added.
“Well, this is something that I have talked to the AG personally about,” Wolf replied.
"I know that they are working on it," he said.
"Look, we have seen about 300 arrests across this country regarding civil unrest and protesting, violent protesting and I would say, criminal protesting.”
“I know the Department of Justice has charged about 74, 75 individuals there in Portland with different federal crimes,” Wolf continued.
“We will continue to see how those investigations are going.
"Department of Justice is also targeting and investigating the head of these organizations, the individuals that are paying for these individuals to move across the country.”
“What we know, Tucker, is that we have seen groups and individuals move from Portland to other parts of the country,” Wolf explained.
“We had about 175 arrests in Kenosha, almost 100 of them were from out of state.
"So, we know they are moving around. We have seen them in D.C., in Sacramento, and elsewhere.
"They are organized," he said.
"We have seen similar tactics being used from Portland and other cities across the country as well.
"So, we know that there is organization.
"I know the Department of Justice is also looking at that as well.”

As Neon Nettle previously reported, far-left billionaire George Soros announced in July that he is pumping another staggering amount of cash into the radical Black Lives Matter organization.
With America burning amid leftist rioting, Hungarian-born financier Soros announced he is donating another $220 million to the “Black Lives Matter movement.”
Much of Soros' money is going into efforts to defund the police and control 2020 voting systems, his foundation revealed.
“This is the time for urgent and bold action to address racial injustice in America,” Alex Soros, George Soros’ son and deputy chair of the Soros family’s “Open Society Foundations,” said in a statement.
The younger Soros also revealed their radical-left push to abolish Amerca's prisons.
“These investments will empower proven leaders in the black community to reimagine policing, end mass incarceration, and eliminate the barriers to opportunity that have been the source of inequity for too long,” Alex Soros said.
