Two More Anarchists Arrested in #DisruptJ20 Plot
Two more anarchists exposed by Project Veritas in a series of sting videos have been arrested, James O'Keefe announced on Twitter Wednesday. That brings the total number of arrests thus far to three. Paul "Luke" Kuhn and Colin Dunn were recently arrested in addition to Scott Ryan Charney, who was arrested on January 19.
Prior to the inauguration of Donald Trump, Project Veritas infiltrated the DisruptJ20 movement as activists plotted to "prevent the peaceful transfer of power" through violent disruption.
In part 1, the anarchists were filmed planning to set off butyric acid “stink bomb” devices at the "Deploraball." As a backup plan, they had also discussed triggering the fire sprinkler system, forcing attendees to evacuate outside into the cold.
Luke Kuhn, of the D.C. Anti-Fascist Coalition, was heard on the video actually threatening the city government of Washington, D.C., and the police if they tried to stop them:
"The message has to be, we do not recognize the city government either," Kuhn says. "If you try to close us down we will look for your house, we will burn it. We will physically fight the police if they try to steal one of our places. We will go to war and you will lose."
