Now we know who ordered it...

Annie Deighnaugh

Attorney General William P. Barr personally ordered law enforcement officials on the ground to extend the perimeter around Lafayette Square in Washington to push back protesters just before President Trump spoke Monday, a Justice Department official said. https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/06/02/george-floyd-protests-live-updates/


There is nothing barr won't do for trump. Nothing.

I was worried it was Barr.....this is really terrifying. Sadly he is writing his own legacy and it won't be good.

Trump is just a useful tool for Barr, Annie. Barr is a religious hyper-conservative.

Barr is a religious hyper-conservative.

I don't suppose I'll ever see a radical religious social justice advocate in DOJ.

Big sigh.

It can go both ways, there’s nothing to say they aren’t using each other.

Barr should be impeached and removed immediately—this recklessness is going to get more people killed.

I disagree. Barr is a heck of a lot smarter than Trump and he's had this vision of our country long before Trump slid onto the scene. I don't believe he wrote that application letter, one he knew would get him the nomination, because he was a Trump fanboy.

No doubt barr is smarter than trump...that's a low hurdle. But putin is pulling trump's strings and trump is pulling barr's.

Those peaceful protesters are starting to get really peaceful. Good job, Barr. We needed to see some action. This is day 6 and it is now a war against our country. No one is safe. They'll move to our homes as soon as they deplete the stores.

It's a low hurdle but that's irrelevant since Barr is a lot smarter, not just smarter in relation to Trump. Barr understands Washington, and the power of the Federal criminal justice system. Unlike Trump, who has no fixed beliefs other than his own ego, Barr's a zealot with a zealot's vision. I agree about Putin. Putin uses fealty to many of the same throwback religious beliefs as Barr for political expediency.

You think Trump proposed the Insurrection Act to Barr who said " I'll get right on that, boss."?

Read what Noel Casler has to say about Barr and his dad. It’s not good.

400 years? What does the exodus have to do with this?

Now we know who "hatched" it:

Hope Hicks "hatched" plan for Trump photo-op where protesters were dispersed with tear gas

White House adviser Hope Hicks was behind President Donald Trump's
church photo-op on Monday, where peaceful protesters were dispersed with
tear gas, according to The New York Times.

Trump, who was reportedly "embarrassed" and "upset" by news reports that
he had hunkered down in the White House bunker as protests over police
violence raged outside, walked over to St. John's Church on Monday to hold up a bible for cameras. Police backed by the National Guard unleashed tear gas, rubber bullets and flash-bang shells on peaceful protesters to clear the path for the president before the city's curfew went into place.

Sooo,

@IvankaTrump carried the prop Bible across the street in her purse and discreetly handed it to Trump . A planned photo-op from the beginning.

It is mind boggling, it really is.

Our president, ladies and gentlemen - so noble and altruistic! Obviously a man of the highest moral principles!

How does one know this or learn this? I don't doubt any of these statements as bizarrely, they make odd sense in these peculiar times.

But pls. I wish to know the source(s). TIA

Bill Barr is supposed to be a supporter of Authoritarian government. Top down.

I'm amazed that Bible didn't burst into flames in Trump's hand.
