Harmeet K. Dhillon & Andy Ngo - the biggest clowns in the Trump circus

Wow how did I miss this story in the NYTimes from June 4?

Lawsuit Aims to Hold Nebulous 'Antifa' to Blame for Injuries

From the story:
A conservative writer from Portland, Oregon, filed a lawsuit Thursday against purported elements of the nebulous, far-left militant groups collectively known as antifa, days after President Donald Trump blamed those groups for inciting violence at protests over police killings of black people. 
The suit was filed on behalf of Andy Ngo, who is known for aggressively covering and video-recording demonstrators. 
“I am hoping that this marks a turning point, that militants belonging to a criminal movement can no longer depend on the anonymity ... to get away with their crimes,” said Ngo, who previously was a writer with the online publication Quillette and now is with The Post Millennial. 
Ngo has drawn attention to antifa for years and said he was targeted and suffered brain injuries when he was assaulted while covering protests in Portland a year ago. Video of the attack was widely viewed online and led to national calls for investigations as well as a subsequent rally led by the Proud Boys, a right-wing organization that has been designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. 
Antifa — short for “anti-fascists"— is an umbrella term for leftist militant groups that confront or resist neo-Nazis and white supremacists at demonstrations. 
That makes it more difficult, but not impossible, to pursue a lawsuit, said California-based attorney Harmeet Dhillon, a Republican Party official who sued on Ngo's behalf. 
Dhillon said the timing of the antifa lawsuit was coincidental to recent protests over the death of George Floyd, who struggled to breathe as his neck was pinned down by a white Minneapolis police officer’s knee. She said she waited months to sue in the futile hope that authorities would bring criminal charges against Ngo's attackers.
This is obviously part of Trump's long-standing ratfucking Reichstag fire plan to make ANTIFA the bogeyman. The lawsuit is the next step after Trump declared the "nebulous" group a "terrorist organization" and will be used to justify more authoritarian moves by Trump.

Pinkerite has written about these two clowns several times. Andy Ngo is a right-wing stooge and failed "journalist" who makes money through the free speech grift.

It's the involvement of Republican Party official Harmeet K. Dhillon in this scheme that demonstrates how truly degraded and corrupt and - there's no other word for it - evil - the Republican Party has become.

I'm glad others are talking about Trump's Reichstag Fire tactics.
