Attorney General William Barr and federal officials held a news conference on the government’s response to protests across America in response to the death of George Floyd while in custody of Minneapolis police. The attorney general said federal law enforcement continued to protect Americans who were peacefully protesting but was actively pursing those using this moment to loot and cause violence. He said law enforcement agencies were investigating extremist groups accused of instigating violence and vandalism. Attorney General Barr and FBI Director Christopher Wray also spoke about foreign actors sowing discord by spreading disinformation and inciting violence on social media platforms. He also commented on the controversy surrounding President Trump’s photo-op at St. John’s Church after protesters where forcefully removed, saying the president should be able to walk out of the White House and visit the church if he chooses. close
