(NewsReady.com) – On August 27, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) was harassed as he was leaving the White House after attending President Donald Trump’s acceptance of the GOP nomination. In an op-ed for Fox News, the senator asked for an investigation into the groups or individuals funding protesters. It looks like that’s exactly what’s going to happen.
During an interview with Tucker Carlson, acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf said he spoke to Attorney General (AG) William Barr about the riots. According to the secretary, the DOJ is investigating the people and organizations “paying for these individuals to move across the country” to cause violence.
Sadie Gurman, a journalist for the Wall Street Journal, reported a DOJ spokesperson confirmed the investigation.
Asked why heads of antifa, BLM have not been charged w/ racketeering @DHS_Wolf said he is in touch w/ Barr & "I know they are working on it." This am, DOJ spox said: "We are investigating coordinated criminal activity, not First Amendment activity, and violence related to riots."

Numerous cities have reported many of the agitators are coming from other cities to cause violence. This leads many to wonder who’s paying for them to travel. Is it a larger plot to cause unrest around the country?
