House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)and other Democrats have gone on a tirade over apparent federal agents sweeping alleged rioters away in unmarked vehicles.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has joined the bandwagon of sanctimonious anger over the criminal suspects being apprehended in an unconventional way, highlighting the suspicion by patriotic Americans nationwide the left is not interesting in quelling any civil unrest unless it happens to directly affect them.
Earlier we reported that Nancy Pelosi was calling the agents “Stormtroopers” for President Trump. Now Chuck Schumer has this to say about the situation, using the word abomination for the way people were arrested, but not to describe the seemingly third world chaos being seen by Portland, OR, and other areas.
“There should be an immediate investigation by the Inspectors General at the Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security into this abomination.” See tweet:

USA Today’s report that was shared by Schumer told more about the story:
Federal law enforcement officers have used unmarked vehicles to detain protesters in Portland, according to news reports and at least one protester who spoke to USA TODAY.
Videos shared online show officers driving up to people, detaining them without explanation, then driving off, Oregon Public Broadcastingfirst reported. The ACLU filed a lawsuit Friday evening to try and end what it called “lawlessness” on the streets of Portland.
The lawsuit — the first of several that the ACLU said is to be filed against the Trump administration in Portland — seeks to block the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies from attacking journalists and legal observers at protests.
“Federal agents are terrorizing the community, threatening lives, and relentlessly attacking protesters demonstrating against police brutality,” the ACLU said in a tweet. “This is not law and order. This is lawlessness — and it must be stopped.”
There are reports that Ken Cuccinelli is involved in these arrests. Cuccinelli is currently the Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security and also serves as the Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. He has given the impression that not only will they not stop, but they will start arresting more rioters around the nation in this fashion when federal authorities are legally able to do so.
