Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From “CBS News: DHS warned in July that Portland Antifa riots were organized and not "opportunistic"”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Specifically, this warning came from the same former DHS undersecretary that has become Adam Schiff’s most recent whistleblower. Brian Murphy served as acting head of DHS’s intelligence unit, which found out the patently obvious. The riots in Portland used the same tactics, techniques, and procedures as rioters elsewhere, which passes the duck test for organized action. CBS News nat-sec reporter Catherine Herridge provided a redacted version of Murphy’s July 25th report (via Twitchy):

#Whistleblower #PortlandProtest Breaking: According to this @DHSgov internal email, obtained @CBSNews, former Acting Under Secretary for Intelligence & Analysis Brian Murphy wrote colleagues on July 25th that the Portland violence was not “opportunistic” but “organized” citing

are organized and show up night after night, and share common TTPs (Tactics, Techniques and Procedures)..”

"Threat actors who are motivated by Anarchists or ANTIFA (or a combination of both) ideologies to carry out acts of violence against State, Local and Federal authorities..”

This might end up being uncomfortable in multiple directions. Certainly the Trump administration will want to emphasize Murphy’s analysis while making the point that radical progressives are out of control, and that their support for law and order is all the more necessary. At the same time, Schiff wants Murphy to testify about DHS intel on election-security issues, which Murphy accuses DHS of cooking to suit Trump’s political purposes. Clearly Schiff will need to enhance Murphy’s credibility on that matter, but Trump will want to enhance Murphy’s credibility on Antifa.
