The Democrat-funded terror organization Antifa is officially classified as "domestic terrorists" by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security.
The black-clad Antifa activists are often compared to the Ku Klux Klan: both groups wear masks or hoods to conceal their identities and both groups were created by the Democratic Party.
Federal authorities have been warning state and local officials that the so-called anti-fascists "anarchist extremists" was becoming increasingly violent at peaceful protests.
Politico.com obtained formally classified documents that show the FBI and DHS listed Antifa as "domestic terrorists" in 2016.
Antifa is a well-funded organization that travels from state to state disrupting peaceful protests by attacking right-wing demonstrators with baseball bats, sticks, chains, bricks and balloons filled with urine and feces.
The violent group assaulted peaceful right-wing protesters at a rally in Berkeley, California last week, prompting House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to call for their prosecution.
Pelosi said Antifa doesn't represent Democrats -- despite wealthy Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, donating millions to fund Antifa's illegal activities.
In May, Clinton donated $800,000 to her newly formed political action committee (PAC) to "fund a number of established 'resistance' groups that can quickly counter President Trump with direct action and protests."
The mainstream media (except CNN) is backing away from Antifa after 10 reporters were assaulted over the past several weeks.
CNN justified the group's antics with a friendly op-ed piece titled "Antifa: Peace Through Violence".
