WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Andy Biggs and Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee, sent a letter to Chairman Jerry Nadler, urging him to immediately call a hearing to investigate the funding source of the riots that have plagued cities across the nation.

Read the text of the letter below:

 

October 2, 2020

The Honorable Jerrold L. Nadler
Chairman
Committee on the Judiciary
U.S. House of Representatives
Washington, D.C. 20515

Dear Chairman Nadler,

We write to urge you to immediately call a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee to investigate the funding source of the riots plaguing cities across America. We are concerned with the Committee’s lack of oversight of this matter and urge you to consider this request.

Mr. Chairman, you recently said in an interview that Antifa – an organization inciting violent riots across the country – was “a myth that’s being spread only in Washington, D.C.” The reality is that Antifa’s actions are not a “myth.” We know from federal agencies like the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) that Antifa’s actions pose a security threat to many communities across our country.

Recently, Attorney General William Barr stated: “We have evidence that ANITFA and other similar extremist groups, as well as actors of a variety of different political persuasions have been involved in instigating and participating in the violent activity.” FBI Director Christopher Wray stated that “Antifa is a real thing,” and that “we have any number of properly predicated investigations into what we would describe as violent anarchist extremists and some of those individuals self-identify with Antifa.”

This Committee has failed to engage in substantial oversight of the forces behind these organized riots. Instead, we have spent our limited time conducting partisan Committee business that does not help us advance safety and prosperity for the American people. We urge you to accept that Antifa and other domestic extremist groups pose a real threat to our communities and to call hearings to investigate the funding sources of these riots.

Failure to conduct these investigatory hearings will result in an abdication of responsibility by this Committee, leading to continued unrest and crumbling security in communities across the nation. We urge you to join us in addressing this time sensitive issue of national priority.

We look forward to your prompt response.

Sincerely,
