Agitators Plan To Stop DC Subway Trains During Inauguration
Agitators attempting to disrupt President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration are planning on stopping Washington D.C. subway lines, according to an undercover video released Tuesday by Project Veritas.
The Daily Caller has previously reported that protesters are planning to disrupt inauguration balls, set up blockades and lead a march that will likely end in property destruction. The video released by Project Veritas, a group launched by activist journalist James O’Keefe, shows that an organizer for #DisruptJ20 also plans on committing a federal act of terrorism.
“So simultaneous to the checkpoint blockades in the morning, we are also doing a series of clusterfuck blockades, where we are going to try to blockade all the the major ingress points in the city,” organizer Legba Carrefour says in the undercover video while speaking to activists.
He said this can include “shutting down major bridges and highway access points as well as shutting down metro rail.” A journalist for Project Veritas recorded Carrefour detailing how he would shut down Washington subway lines. “The trains pull up…one person is going to lock one end of a chain to an edge, and the other end of the chain on the end of the car, so on and so fourth. Done,” a voice identified as Carrefour’s is recorded saying.
The video says Carrefour added, “It takes 15 seconds and everyone can leave and literally it can’t go anywhere at that point, its anchored. And you can use a really thin chain, you don’t need a heavy chain…that would require like a bolt cutter to undo, basically to shut down that line.”
The video released by Project Veritas also claims to show Mike Isaacson, co-founder of Smash Racism D.C., saying that they have a plan for “how to shut down a metro,” they just need people to execute it.
Metro Transit Police did not immediately return a request for comment. Disabling a mass transportation vehicle is considered terrorism under federal statutes and Project Veritas has said they have shown their undercover recordings to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The FBI did not immediately return a request for comment.
