(FiveNation.com)- This is huge. According to the acting Department of Homeland Security Chad Wolf, the Department of Justice is “targeting and investigating” the leaders of Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Not only that, but the department is even looking into the people who are funding the movements, following months of violent unrest, arson, and violence.
It’s no exaggeration to say that Black Lives Matter and Antifa have caused monumental damage to major American cities, destroyed the lives of many business owners (including many black business owners) and divided society along racial lines.
Speaking to Tucker Carlson on Fox News on Monday, Wolf described the events that have unfolded in recent months and called the 77-year-old Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden “delusional” for suggesting the riots would get worst if Trump won the November election.
Carlson asked Wolf if he believed that the Department of Homeland Security was receiving the support it needs from the Justice Department and then asked why the leaders of Black Lives Matter and Antifa have not yet been charged with conspiracy.
“Well, this is something that I have talked to the AG personally about,” Wolf said to Carlson. “I know that they are working on it. Look, we have seen about 300 arrests across this country regarding civil unrest and protesting, violent protesting and I would say, criminal protesting.”
To say the least!
Wolf said that the Department of Justice has now charged 74 or 75 individuals in Portland with different federal crimes, and said they will continue to watch those investigations. The Department of Justice, he said, is also “targeting and investigating the heads of these organizations, the individuals that are paying for these individuals to move across the country.”
This is significant as it would confirm what many have argued is true for many years – that many big donors are paying for agitators to destroy cities in the name of a radical left-wing cause.
Wolf also said that in Kenosha, 175 arrests were made and almost 100 of those were people from out of state.

So with people moving from state to state, it begs the question…who is funding them? And it looks like the Department of Justice wants to know the answer to that question too.
We may finally have answers soon.
