FBI regards riots as terrorist attacks: "over 300 domestic terrorist investigations" launched into antifa
Donald Trump's words that the antifa should be recognized as “a domestic terrorists,” was confirmed by the US federal attorney, Erin Nealy Cox in a hearing on Capitol Hill.
Since the outbreak of riots in the United States over the death of outlaw George Floyd, the FBI has opened hundreds of investigations into the protesters, members and instigators of the riots, who were and are antifa.
"They have since May 28 [opened] over 300 domestic terrorist investigations," Cox told a Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing on preventing violent protests. "That does not include any potential civil rights investigations or violent crime associated with the riots."
Nearly one hundred and fifty police officers and federal agents were injured during riot control operations, according to official reports.
During the hearing, Senator Ted Cruz outlined the differences between a peaceful protest and what happened in the United States at the BLM protests.

"Their actions are profoundly racist," Cruz said. "The rioters .... destroy minority communities, minority businesses and minority lives across this country. This shouldn't be complicated: peaceful protests must be protected. Riots must be stopped."
