Did CNN Report That Antifa ‘Claimed Responsibility’ for Storming Capitol Hill? Did a Facial Recognition Software Company Identify Antifa Members at the Capitol? No, and No

"A graphic has started to spread on social media, allegedly showing a CNN chyron reporting that Antifa was behind the attack on Congress on Wednesday." It's fake. Also "XRVision never actually identified Antifa members at the riot: The company’s attorney issued a statement to BuzzFeed decrying the Washington Times article as 'outright false, misleading, and defamatory.'"

.....is that there are a number of good reports where individual actors in the invasion/riot have been identified as Trump supporters and interestingly appear to be often cooperating with the FBI and police agencies.  So even if a portion of the rioters WERE "Anti"-fa, that would not let the "pro-Trump" portion of the riots off the hook.

At least that was the response I gave at church when someone suggested it was a false flag/agents provocateurs kind of operation.  Nope, bunch of people have fessed up, they were in the Capitol and were there to support Trump.

Here's an article about Antifa, apparently under the impression that unless they hold a protest/riot, their brand will be ruined by association with the pro-Trump protest/riots.  Suffice it to say that there would likely have been some visual hints that could have been traced if "Anti"-fa had been significantly involved. 

Notice, by the way, that they've all got their matching garbage cans in the picture.  Somebody's doing a nice job of coordinating things.  Would be interesting to figure out where, and you'd figure that after all the damage they've caused, somebody at the DOJ/FBI might be interested.
