The FBI has collected no intelligence indicating that "antifa" was involved in violence over the weekend related to protests over the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who died on May 25 after a white police officer in Minneapolis knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes, The Nation reported.

President Donald Trump and Attorney General William Barr both blamed antifa " a loosely organized left-wing group consisting of anti-fascism activists " for violence linked to a series of protests that took place on Sunday.

Trump announced on Twitter that day that "the United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization."

Barr released a statement afterward echoing the president's sentiments, saying, "The violence instigated and carried out by antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly."

And ANTIFA was involved in the protests. But there's no evidence they were involved in the VIOLENCE.

That's what led us to the revelation that Trump's campaign was colluding with the Russians.

So the method does have its merits.

Probably why the FBI utilizes it so effectively.

And it appears that the White House itself, not Trump or his campaign, but White House staffers, who are being paid with taxpayer dollars, attempted to spread lies about ANTIFA so as to support Trump and AG Barr's efforts to declare them a 'terrorist organization':

The White House's unproven claims on Facebook and Twitter that antifa activists are placing bricks to incite riots have been taken down

You must be using some generous standards like one out of every twenty posts is automatically counted as not stupid.
