Joy Ann Reid responded Thursday to Rep. Louie Gohmert’s (R-TX) claims that Capitol Police were anticipating a huge showing of Antifa members on Jan 6th, saying ‘Antifa are just anti-fascists.” This comes days after Oregon’s Multnomah County District Attorney announced criminal charges against over two dozen Antifa members.

Gohmert claimed “that there was going to be an influx of Antifa,” Reid reported. She spoke in a sarcastic tone, letting it known that she didn’t believe Gohmert’s claims. “They claimed [Antifa members] were basically the devil,” Reid said. “They’re just anti-fascist. They don’t show up anywhere.”

Meanwhile, the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office officially announced charges against Antifa rioters in Portland just Wednesday following several grand jury indictments. The criminal charges included felony riot and criminal mischief. One person was also arrested for attacking reporter Andy Ngô over Memorial Day weekend.

Reid as been with MSNBC since 2014.

Sam Brinton, the Biden administration’s deputy assistant for spent fuel and waste disposition at the Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy has been charged with a very bizarre crime.

Allegedly Brinton purposely stole a woman’s Vera Bradley suitcase worth $2,325 from the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport’s baggage claim.

Brinton is one of the federal government’s first gender non-binary officials who uses they/them pronouns. Court filings state that surveillance video showed Brinton grabbing the luggage and removing the owners ID tag.

Brinton then used the Vera Bradley suitcase on at least two occasions; one while traveling to Washington, DC, on Sept. 18 and the second on Oct. 9, investigators say.

Initially, Brinton denied stealing the suitcase to police officers. They later claimed it was taken by mistake, although it was still  in their possession.
