During a House Intelligence Committee hearing that took place the week of July 27th, which featured Attorney General William Barr, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler acted like his typical foolish self.
Nadler, who is on record as saying Antifa and the rioting is a “myth”, was grandstanded as usual and yelling “questions” at Mr. Barr, but not allowing him to answer.
Hard to imagine the Founders ever envisioned a guy like Jerrold Nadler getting elected to public office https://t.co/ia6eOkT994

This was all in between his cat naps of course, as he is seen on camera falling asleep while Republican Jim Jordan showed this “mythical” riot footage.

According to Breitbart, Mr. Barr, who had just explained that as a member of President Trump’s Cabinet, he was not at liberty to divulge privileged discussions with the president, was met with a typical rude response from Nadler.
“You really can’t hide behind legal fictions.”
Despite the fact that President Trump is the only person trying to actually put a stop to the violent riots raging across the country, Nadler thinks it is a good idea to inadvertently blame the violence the President.
During the hearing, Nadler condemned Barr, and by extension President Trump by saying:
“The president wants footage for his campaign and you appear to be serving it up to him as ordered,”
Apparently Antifa is a “myth”, AND, all of the rioting, fires, looting, and police targeted violence is some concocted plan from President Trump to gain campaign footage. You really cant make this stuff up!
Nadler is then heard lambasting Mr. Barr:
“Shame on you, Mr. Barr! Shame on you!”

When Mr. Barr offered to answer the questions he had been called into the hearing for, Nadler, in typical fashion, responded by saying:
“My time has expired. My time has expired.”
The rest of the hearing continued the same way, with members barking questions at Barr, and then not allowing him to actually answer them. It was similar to a toddler sticking their fingers in their ears screaming “la la la la”.

Here is a story Law Enforcement Today brought you about the “mythical” riots going on in Portland for 60+ days.
PORTLAND, OR – On May 25th, George Floyd encountered four police officers who developed probable cause for his arrest regarding a counterfeit bill transaction.
As the world knows, something happened and George Floyd was taken to the ground. Former Officer Derek Chauvin, for whatever reason, decided to keep Floyd pinned to the ground which ultimately contributed to his untimely death.
On May 29th, Chauvin was arrested and charged for killing Floyd, and shortly after, the remaining officers were also taken into custody.
The quick termination and arrest of those involved in the murder of Floyd apparently was not enough for many people across the United States, specifically in Portland, where there have been nightly protests and riots, which have been occurring for 60 straight days.

On Sunday night, the normal protests and riots occurred in Portland, only this time there was also a shooting, which left one person injured.
The shooting happened around 7:30pm in the area of Southwest Fourth and Salmon St near the federal building in which federal police have set up a perimeter. Police advised that witnesses in the area have not provided a clear motive in the shooting other than a group of people were arguing, and there were several guns displayed.
At one point, a round was fired, striking the unidentified person who was taken by a private party to the hospital. The person is expected to recover.
Although two people were originally detained in regards to the shooting, both have been released. Police advise this shooting is still under investigation.
In an unrelated incident, police arrested 43-year-old Blake David Hampe, a convicted sex offender, early Saturday morning for allegedly stabbing someone near the federal courthouse.
In this case, a group of reporters from Common Sense Conservative noticed they were being followed while covering the riots by who they believed were members of Antifa due to them wearing masks. Drew Duncomb, a black conservative, confronted one of the people and asked why he was following the group.
In response, the masked white man stabbed Duncomb and attempted to leave. However, a group of protesters encircled the man and prevented him from leaving so that police could arrest him. Duncomb was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive.

Near the scene of the stabbing, in Lownsdale Square Park (in front of the federal courthouse) Portland Police located several items stowed away, including loaded rifle magazines and Molotov cocktails.
It does not appear the stabbing is related to the found explosives or munitions.
In addition to these items being located, reports of people firing commercial-grade fireworks and throwing cans of beans, water bottles, and potatoes at the federal police guarding the courthouse.

In a response to the growing violence centered now around the federal courthouse, additional federal police are being sent to Portland to deal with the unrest and rioting.
