[Ed. – Well. OK then. One is tempted to ask, “Did this just occur to them?” – but the article does say the FBI source(s) didn’t disclose when the investigation started. Presumably it’s in conjunction with the nationwide round-up of Antifa goons.]
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has launched a formal investigation into the violent attacks on federal law enforcement and federal buildings in Portland, two senior administration officials told the Washington Examiner.
The FBI is one of several federal agencies investigating the individuals and groups who have organized and carried out the nightly riots, which take place in the early morning hours after largely peaceful protests have wrapped up earlier in the evening.
The FBI did not respond to a request for comment and has not revealed who directed the investigation or when it was initiated.
