Undercover police officers secretly attended protest planning meetings in the weeks before President Donald Trump's Jan. 20 inauguration, a court document obtained by The Washington Post reveals.

The document is an affidavit that was used in a request to search the home of Dylan Petrohilos, a 28-year-old graphic designer, who helped the Disrupt J20 group plan in its Inauguration Day rally.

The Post reports that authorities seized cellphones, computers and a black "anti-capitalist, anti-fascist" flag from Petrohilos's front lawn, although he has not been charged with any crimes.

David Thurston, an organizer of a group which planned permitted and unpermitted protests at the inauguration, told the newspaper: "We believe this is an aggressive assault on the right to organize, to protest."

Six cops were injured during the Inauguration Day protesting and 214 were indicted by a grand jury on charges of felony rioting.
