We are now confronting white supremacists, members of organized crime, out of state instigators, and possibly even foreign actors to destroy and destabilize our city and our region.

From Fox9 in Minneapolis:
Jail records show most arrested in Minneapolis riots have Minnesota addresses
By Theo Keith Published 1 hour agoFOX 9
MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) – The overwhelming majority of people arrested in connection with the Minneapolis unrest have Minnesota addresses, a search of the online Hennepin County Jail log shows.
Of the 45 people arrested for rioting, unlawful assembly, stolen property, burglary or robbery on May 29 and May 30 so far, 38 had Minnesota addresses, according to publicly available jail records reviewed by FOX 9.
Six had out-of-state address, and one person didn’t have address information listed.
City and state officials have repeatedly said over the past day that most rioters are from out of state. Gov. Tim Walz said Saturday morning that as many as 80 percent of the people were outsiders.
13% being out-of-staters isn’t insignificant. I saw a tweet from somebody claiming they’d been at the Twin Cities airport on Thursday morning and lots of Antifa-looking people were getting off airplanes. I don’t have proof of that, but it fits the general timeline:
Wednesday night: Blacks loot Target
Thursday night: Mostly whites burn down the police station
Friday night: A combination
But the bigger issue is that after 3 nights of chaos, only 45 people have been arrested?
So now, the attorney general, Bill Barr, is attempting to pin the anarchy and infiltration, which is already documented as coming from white nationalist groups, on "left leaning" ANTIFA groups. The goal is to force the media to repeat that. What is his proof?

From a long thread by @JoyAnnReid expounding her complicated conspiracy theory about Russian White Nationalist Outside Agitators in Minneapolis, and then ends by saying that the Attorney General investigating Antifa is just "appeasing Trump and his fans conspiracy theories." https://t.co/pyefiIlzy7
