For years now we’ve been hearing about how multiple federal agencies have SWAT-like forces for emergencies. This would seem to be one in Portland (after 50 days of escalating “protests”) and, indeed, feds are being dispatched, using tear-gas to disperse the mobs around the federal courthouse and making arrests.
Brilliant, really, on Trump’s part. Takes the onus off federalizing the guard and avoids the controversy that would come with sending in the active-duty army. Although local Dimocrat officials, who have preferred mob rule, are protesting, they aren’t being heard.
