Capitol building on Wednesday, and nobody else. So he stood outside the building with a crowd and sang the national anthem. Instead, it was antifa, the decentralized left-wing group that has become a bogeyman for Republican commentators and politicians, and for President Trump in particular. As early as p.

The choice between claiming responsibility and passing it off is an ideological line in the sand for each person who makes it. As she marched through Washington, D.
