GOP Judiciary Members Blast Nadler for Ignoring Antifa Threats on Trump

Four Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday blasted Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., for wasting the first 20 months of his chairmanship on “fruitless partisan investigations in furtherance of” his obsession with attacking President Donald Trump while ignoring the threat of the left-wing, anti-fascist political movement known as antifa.

“We urge you not to waste any more time,” Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Ken Buck of Colorado, Jim Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin and Mike Johnson of Louisiana.

“The jurisdiction of the Judiciary Committee provides you with a unique authority to condemn the violence and disorder in Democrat-run cities.”

Antifa, according to Rutgers historian Mark Bray, is not a singular organization.

“It's a kind of politics or activity of radical opposition to the far-right that doesn't have any qualms about physically disrupting far-right demonstrations,” he told NPR recently.

“But it's not something new. That's the misconception. This isn't something that came about over the last few years. Anti-fascism has a hundred-year history, and this specific strain of militant anti-fascism has existed in the U.S. for several decades, at the very least. But, of course, it came into prominence around clashes with the far-right, especially in 2017 in Charlottesville and elsewhere.”

Trump has proposed the U.S. designate antifa a terrorist organization and has conflated large protests in every city with radical anti-fascist groups.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday denounced the movement, and condemned violence “across the board.”
