Journalist Andy Ngô told the story of Antifa’s most recent attack in a series of tweets Wednesday. He also appeared on the Ingraham Angle to talk at length about his narrow escape from the angry mob.

Ngô was undercover, reporting on the most recent riots in Portland, Oregon Friday, when some rioters approached him. “I think what gave it away though was they paid attention to the fact that I wasn’t engaging in criminal activities,” Ngô said. According to him, they snatched his mask, recognized him and shouted: “That’s him! Get him! Get him!”

Next, “I was chased, attacked and beaten by a masked mob, baying for my blood,” the journalist said. Luckily, he found shelter in a nearby hotel, and eventually was treated by EMTs who arrived at the scene. Meanwhile, rioters banged on the doors to the hotel. The last time Ngô came under a violent attack was in April of this year, while he covered a similar riot in Portland. In 2019, he was beaten so badly while covering ANTIFA that he suffered brain hemmorrages.

“Antifa wants me dead because I document what they want to stay hidden,” Ngô tweeted. “The attacks against me and threats on my life are retribution for my work as a journalist . . . But it is the right of every journalist, protected and preserved by the founding fathers, to report freely without fear.”

Later, police only arrested one of Ngô’s many attackers from that night. The man was charged with felony unlawful use of a weapon, felony attempted assault, felony riot and other crimes. But, “His bail was immediately covered by an Antifa bail fund group,” Ngô tweeted.

Jan. 6 Select Committee Announces Plan to ‘Advance Contempt Proceedings’ Against Mark Meadows

The January 6th Capital riot saga continues as a Democratic-led Select Committee has confirmed its plans to hold former President Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows in criminal contempt. On Tuesday CNN obtained a letter that Mark Meadow’s attorney sent to the January 6 Committee formally announcing he would refuse to continue to cooperate with the probe.

“We agreed to provide thousands of pages of responsive documents and Mr. Meadows was willing to appear voluntarily, not under compulsion of the Select Committee’s subpoena to him, for a deposition to answer questions about non-privileged matters,” attorney George J. Terwilliger III stated in the letter.

“Now actions by the Select Committee have made such an appearance untenable…In short, we now have every indication from the information supplied to us last Friday — upon which Mr. Meadows could expect to be questioned — that the Select Committee has no intention of respecting boundaries concerning Executive Privilege,” Terwilliger added.

Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) wrote a letter dated December 7 announcing its retaliatory actions: “The Select Committee is left with no choice but to advance contempt proceedings and recommend that the body in which Mr. Meadows once served refer him for criminal prosecution.”

CNN reports on the timeline of correspondence between the Select Committee and Mr. Meadows:

Meadows was first subpoenaed by the committee on September 23. On November 12, Meadows failed to appear for a deposition, but on November 22, the committee gave Meadows another opportunity to begin cooperating with the committee by turning over documents and scheduling a new deposition, to which Meadows agreed. But, the day before the scheduled deposition, Meadows, via his lawyer, informed the committee he would not be appearing for the scheduled December 8 deposition and would cease cooperating with the committee.

Prior to Tuesday’s decision to cease cooperating with the committee, Meadows “had turned over approximately 6,000 pages worth of documents to the panel” reports CNN.
