The Interior Department Inspector General published the results of his investigation into the clash in Lafayette Park in June 2020. Mark Greenblatt found that federal police officers got involved to make room for contractors installing a new fence in the park.

This happened to coincide with then President Trump taking a photo in front of a nearby church. Many blamed Trump for the violent clashes.

Inspector General Greenblatt also found that police were “inconsistent with the guidance” when they violently removed protestors. But, he did not deny their authority to remove the protestors in the first place.

At the time, then presidential candidate Joe Biden railed against Trump. Biden ran with the reports that have since been proven false to tweet: “He’s using the American military against the American people. He tear-gassed peaceful protesters and fired rubber bullets. For a photo.”

Kayleigh McEnany, who was Trump’s White House Press Secretary, took to Twitter to remind everyone, she told them. “I said this from the podium endlessly. But only now do they finally report the truth,” she tweeted.

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.
