Speaking in front of the House Homeland Security Committee Thursday, FBI Director Christopher Wray reconfirmed Antifa is a dangerous ideology fueling riots across the country and that agents are conducting investigations into individuals affiliated with the movement. 

"Antifa is a real thing. It's not a group or an organization. It's a movement, or an ideology may be one way of thinking of it and we have quite a number, and I've said this quite consistently since my first time appearing before this committee, we have any number of properly predicated investigations into what we would describe as violent anarchist extremists and some of those individuals self-identify with Antifa," Wray said. 

Attorney General Bill Barr has also confirmed the investigations. 

"People are pouring through all of the video trying to identify people to hold people accountable," Barr said during a recent interview with Townhall. "I think Antifa and Antifa like groups are at the center of it."

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler claimed in July, when riots were raging, that Antifa is a "myth" made up by Republicans. 

After months of unrest by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is finally getting the memo.
