Report: GOP Lawmakers Urge DOJ To Investigate Who Is Funding Violent Riots

Republican lawmakers are calling for the Department of Justice to investigate which groups are making an effort to actively support or fund violent protesters and rioters.

As BizPac Review reports, Congressman Ken Buck, Senator Rand Paul, and Georgia State Representative Vernon Jones are all calling for an investigation into who is paying the individuals inciting violence and destroying local businesses. Their calls for additional information come after initial reports and statements from local and state officials confirm many of the protesters are not from the local area where the protests are occurring.

“The Justice Department needs to open an investigation into who is funding these violent riots,” Buck said on Twitter.

“If the Tea Party threatened a Democratic Senator and assaulted police officers like this, it would be leading CNN. Every conservative politician would be asked to condemn it. Where is the outrage?” he added in another tweet.

In a tweet on Friday, Buck challenged Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser on whether or not she supported the protests: “Where is DC Mayor Bowser? Does she support rioters attacking law enforcement?”

In a Fox News op-ed, Republican Senator Rand Paul, who was attacked by a mob in Washington D.C. after leaving the Republican National Convention, asked about the organization of the rioters and about their financial support.

“My question is: Who are these people? Who paid for their hotel rooms? Who flew them in?” he asked. “Law enforcement needs to look at the funding of violent criminal activity like this. And national Democrats need to confront it. It’s organized. It’s paid for. It’s violent. It’s not about Black lives or any lives; it’s about anarchy and destruction. The American people are starting to catch on and grow tired of it.”

BizPac Review adds:

Rep. Jones, a Trump-supporting Democrat, told Fox News that “Congress should hold hearings … and hear testimonies from those of us who are being attacked. It should also do a thorough investigation to see who’s funding … these professional domestic terrorists, and they should be held accountable.”

Jones continued his remarks in a video he uploaded to his Twitter.

“These were Democrats, Black Lives Matter, Antifa folks…let me be clear. My life was threatened. And other lives were threatened,” he said. “When I hear that foolishness from the liberal media that it was ‘mostly peaceful,’ where in the hell were they when my life was threatened…thank God for those police officers. If it had not been for them, I don’t know if I would be talking to you now or any other time.”
