Antifa ‘Ringleader’ Behind Attack On Andrew Jackson Statue Arrested By Feds

Jason Charter, the ringleader behind the antifa attack on the Andrew Jackson statue outside the White House has been arrested by federal law enforcement.

FBI: “Charter Was On Top Of The Statue And Directing People”

Charter, 25, was arrested on Thursday at his residence by the FBI and US Park Police as a joint task force investigates the destruction of the Andrew Jackson statue in Lafayette Square. Charter was “in a leadership role” on June 22nd when a gang of antifa members attempted to tear the statue down.

A federal law enforcement official said that the group was “very organized,” and that “Charter was on top of the statue and directing people,” while the mob had “acid, chisels, straps and a human chain preventing police from getting to the statue.”

The FBI complaint submitted from Charter’s arrest said that he was seen in local news footage “standing over the toppled [Albert] Pike Statue [in Washington earlier this month], pouring an unknown liquid onto the statue,” and then was “observed waving others away from the statue, and squatting down behind the statue where his hands are not visible. Seconds later, the statue catches fire. Charter is seen standing over the flames as it burns.”

“At the Jackson Statue incident, Charter is additionally seen wearing a red set of ski goggles and a yellow ventilator mask,” the complaint continues. “Charter’s face is clearly visible at different times during each incident.”

They Are Vicious Thugs!

Charter was also part of an antifa mob who attacked conservative journalist Jack Posobiec, when they were trying to topple the Emancipation Memorial at Lincoln Park in Washington last month. He was identified as the man in goggles who assaulted Posobiec by Post Millennial journalist, Ian Miles Cheong.

You can see a pattern emerging here. These antifa activists are violent, nasty individuals, who want to destroy the history of this country, and anyone who dares stand up to protect it.
