The White House issued a statement on Sunday to clarify President Donald Trump’s views on white supremacists, the KKK, and Neo-Nazis.
“The President said very strongly in his statement yesterday that he condemns all forms of violence, bigotry, and hatred,” a White House official said. “Of course that includes white supremacists, KKK, Neo-Nazi, and all extremist groups.”
Media and political figures were furious after the president failed to specifically condemn the white nationalist forces that triggered the violent uproar in Charlottesville, Virginia, between demonstrators and counter-protesters.
After the president’s speech, the driver accused of plowing his vehicle into a crowd of counter-protesters was identified as James Alex Fields Jr., who was reportedly“infatuated” with Nazis and Adolf Hitler. Heather D. Heyer, one of the counter-protesters struck by the vehicle, was killed.
Justice Department opens up civil rights investigation into Charlottesville violence
Aug 13, 2017 by Kyle Feldscher
The Department of Justice opened a civil rights investigation into the violence in Charlottesville, Va. where a white nationalist is facing a murder charge for driving into a crowd and killing a 32-year-old woman.
The FBI confirmed Sunday it had opened up a civil rights investigation into Saturday’s events in Charlottesville. A white supremacist rally scheduled for noon Saturday devolved into violence between the rally attendees and leftist counter-protesters, leading to the rally being canceled.
The leftist protesters were celebrating that decision when 20-year-old James Alex Fields drove his Dodge Charger into a crowd. He collided with two other vehicles that were stopped in the crowded streets and the collision injured 19 and killed one woman.
“The Richmond FBI Field Office, the Civil Rights Division, and the US Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Virginia have opened a civil rights investigation into the circumstances of the deadly vehicular incident that occurred earlier Saturday morning,” the U.S. Attorney’s Office statement read.
“The FBI will collect all available facts and evidence, and as this is an ongoing investigation we are not able to comment further at this time.”
Fields faces state charges of one count of second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding, and one count of hit and run attended failure to stop with injury. The federal investigation could lead to additional charges.
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, called for the DOJ to open a civil rights investigation into the incident late Saturday night.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said late Saturday night he had opened up the investigation.
“The violence and deaths in Charlottesville strike at the heart of American law and justice,” Sessions said, according to Politico. “When such actions arise from racial bigotry and hatred, they betray our core values and cannot be tolerated. I have talked with FBI Director Chris Wray, FBI agents on the scene, and law enforcement officials for the state of Virginia. The FBI has been supporting state and local authorities throughout the day. U.S. Attorney Rick Mountcastle has commenced a federal investigation and will have the full support of the Department of Justice. Justice will prevail.”
Properly done this investigation should include the Soros paid protesters and any other violent protesters. Perhaps the DOJ will finally prosecute Soros.
Sunday Talks: Decepticon Cancer On America Karl Rove Attempts to Kneecap President Trump…
The right-side of the DC UniParty are exploiting the opportunity to undermine President Trump through heavy use of the “weak Charlottesville response” attack narrative.
Against the background of NAFTA renegotiation (beginning Wednesday), and with a trade confrontation with China imminent (Tomorrow), the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is seizing on this opportunity to dispatch all of their paid operatives to destroy the threat to multinational corporatism and globalist economic expansion, U.S. President Trump.
It’s the perfect anti-Trump storm formation, with a motive oblivious to the U.S electorate because the media have not discussed any of the trade aspects to President Trump’s economic national security agenda. The big business lobby, Tom Donohue, multinational corporations and their paid advocates have free reign to attack Trump.
