Skip to comments.Report: Seattle Mayor May Face Federal Charges Over ‘Autonomous Zone’ Fiasco
Posted on 09/16/2020 7:19:51 PM PDT by Beave Meister
The Department of Justice is looking into whether federal charges can be brought against Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan over her failure to crack down on a so-called autonomous zone controlled for weeks by rioters.
Attorney General William Barr has tasked the DOJs civil rights division with investigating whether charges can be brought against Durkan, The New York Times reported on Wednesday evening citing two people familiar with the discussions. Barr has also asked federal prosecutors to consider charging rioters with sedition and insurrection against the United States government, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Rioters took over several city blocks and a police precinct in the middle of Seattle for several weeks over the summer as protests and riots took place following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25. Durkan eventually ordered police to move into the area and reestablish order following several deadly shootings.
As The Daily Wire reported at the time:

If Trump wins big this may come to pass.
“Barr has also asked federal prosecutors to consider charging rioters with sedition and insurrection against the United States government...”
Gee guys, maybe all those clever signs saying “You are now leaving the United States” weren’t such a good idea after all.
Can we do MPLS and the idiot Mayor next for letting rioters burn one of their police precincts?
When Antifa started shooting black carjackers was the point that the mayor decided to crack down on it.
Win or get cheat out of office, once election day is over, it can be no holds barred.
Hes president until Jan 20 and if he got nothing to lose, the gloves can come off.
Best to prep for rough times either way.
Sure hope so!
Barr doesn’t have what it takes to charge the mayor.
Jenny, don’t believe this stuff! Just keep your Socialist agenda going. Your peasants love this.
Hopefully, and they definitely need to do the same with Oregon governor Kate Brown. Throw both Oregon senator in too. Four months of riots here and ARSON.
Bill Barr. Master of the empty threat.
Violating civil rights under color of law. Protecting a deadly terrorist group preying on people, and doing nothing to protect the innocent, and using their power to protect the terrorists.
This is EXACTLY, PRECISELY what the Sheriff in Mississippi did in the 1960s protecting the KKK when they targeted people.
Perhaps the citizens of these blue states are too far gone, but I think that it is a plausible scenario that Washington, Oregon, and New York flip Red. The beauty is if they do, the fraud machine wont be in place to counteract it because it will be utterly unexpected. It will also put the lie to traditional red areas suddenly flipping blue after like 50 years such as Orange County. If super blue washington state turns red,who is going to believe 100,000 ballots suddenly being discovered a week after the election?
Looking into.... Investigating.... Considering.
Never arresting, indicting, prosecuting.
“The New York Times reported on Wednesday evening citing two people familiar with the discussions”
in other words complete bullshit fake news ...
I think that it was when Antifa shows up at her house that she decided that a funded police dept was a good thing.
Words are so, so cheap. How ‘bout some indictments? Anything but words.
CHOP Zone was dismantled on July 1. How come it took Barr and his minions 80 days to decide to charge Durkan?
