Flashback: DC Mayor Honored For Riot Response. New Reports Reveal She, Not Trump, Teargassed Protest
Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist
New reports confirm it was Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser — not Pres. Trump — who
teargassed the protesters a few blocks away from the White House on the evening in question, that the protests had repeatedly devolved into violence and arson, and that the clearing was done for major security concerns and not a photo opportunity. For more than a year, Bowser allowed Trump to take the blame for what her police forces had done.
