The Biden administration has continued refusing to condemn violent extremist group Antifa. During a recent press briefing, White House press secretary Jen Psaki dodged questions on whether the group is being investigated as domestic terrorists, citing the recent riots in Portland.

Psaki said all violence in the country is being reviewed, but that there are no updates yet on it.
“Well certainly we had our team on the ground, our national security team, even before 12:01 early in the morning on Inauguration Day because we wanted to be able to monitor events happening across the country, and any unrest that was resulting from the last couple of weeks,” Psaki stated.
Psaki was also recently asked about Antifa members who vandalized the Democrat Party of Oregon headquarters.
