Perry pointed out that Antifa factored in “inciting riots” across the country, probably referring to their violent actions during President Trump’s inauguration and on college campuses.
“We are investigating a number of what we would call anarchist-extremist investigations,” he added, saying there are entities looking to commit violence “on kind of an Antifa ideology.”
In September, it surfaced that the FBI placed Antifa-linked groups on its terror watch lists, according to Politico.
