Pelosi Calls Federal Agents Brought in to Protect Federal Courthouse in Oregon ‘stormtroopers’

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) called federal agents from the Department of Homeland Security “stormtroopers” in response to their effort to bring order and protect federal buildings including a courthouse in Oregon.

On July 17, Pelosi was outraged over the tactics of arrests in Portland, Oregon.

Soon after, Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum filed a lawsuit in federal court over the arrests.

Rosenblum claims the federal agents are violating the rights of citizens and their presence is adding more volatility to the ongoing unrest in Portland.

ABC News reports:

The lawsuit asks for a declaration that the federal agents’ alleged actions violate the First Amendment as well as the Fourth and Fifth Amendments, and “an injunction permanently restraining defendants from engaging in tactics” such as the two incidents Rosenblum says were “unlawful.”

ABC News covered the protests and the lawsuit in a national broadcast.

Prior to Pelosi’s tweet and Rosenblum’s lawsuit, acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolfe defended his department.

In addition to Oregon’s attorney general, Representative Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR) also complained about the actions by federal agents.

Pelosi and Representative Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) issued a statement blasting President Trump.

We live in a democracy, not a banana republic. We will not tolerate the use of Oregonians, Washingtonians – or any other Americans – as props in President Trump’s political games. The House is committed to moving swiftly to curb these egregious abuses of power immediately.”

Last night, protesters tried to burn down the Portland Police Association office but the fire was extinguished.

The Portland police declared last night’s actions as a riot.

The New York Post reports:

Anti-cop protesters in Portland, Oregon, torched the city’s police union headquarters Saturday night as local law enforcement officials declared a riot, according to reports.

President Trump defended his actions in Portland.

Democrats continue to take the side of the mob that is turning Portland into a city of perpetual chaos while President Trump seeks to protect federal property.

Pelosi and the Oregon Democrats are trying to exploit social unrest for political gain but this strategy will backfire because Americans are for law and order.
