|Kate Brown (D) - Governor of Oregon|
The governor of Oregon, Kate Brown (D), claims it is an "abuse of power" for President Trump to send federal troops and/or agents into Portland, a city that has been plagued with violent riots for the past 7 weeks (since approximately May 29, 2020). Violent acts by agitators include launching fireworks at federal buildings, breaking windows of the federal courthouse, throwing projectiles at law enforcement, and even attacking officers with a hammer.
President Trump gave Kate Brown and other Oregon officials (Democrats) approximately 6 weeks to prove that they were either unwilling or unable to end the domestic violence. Beginning on or about July 14, 2020, federal agents (presumably from the Department of Homeland Security) quietly picked up agitators in a non-confrontational manner after they had been observed participating in the riots. These actions by the Feds are grounded in the law. Article IV, Section 4 of the US Constitution states:
|Violent riot in Portland, OR (circa July 5, 2020)|
|Marxist leader of BLM - Patrisse Cullors|
18 U.S. Code § 2381. Treason
