(FreedomWire.org) – House Democratic Whip Katherine Clark’s daughter was arrested for spray-painting a monument and assaulting a police officer during a protest yesterday in Boston. Clark became the second highest-ranking Democrat in the House of Representatives after she was elected whip last month.

She said: “Last night, my daughter was arrested in Boston, Massachusetts. I love Riley, and this is a very difficult time in the cycle of joy and pain in parenting. This will be evaluated by the legal system, and I am confident in that process.”

Boston Police Department issued a statement that said: “Incident 1: At about 9:30 PM, on Saturday, January 21, 2021, officers assigned to District A-1 (Downtown) responded to a call for a protest at the Parkman Bandstand Monument located within the Boston Common, 139 Tremont Street.

“Upon arrival officers observed an individual defacing the monument with spray paint. The tagging read “NO COP CITY” and “ACAB”.

“The suspect was later identified as Jared Dowell, 23, of Melrose.

“During the arrest of Jared Dowell, a group of about 20 protesters began to surround officers while screaming profanities though megaphones on the public street causing traffic to come to a standstill.

“While interfering with the arrest of Jared Dowell, an officer was hit in the face and could be seen bleeding from the nose and mouth.  

“Jared Dowell was placed under arrest and charged with; Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon, Destruction or Injury of Personal Property and Damage of Property by Graffiti/Tagging. Dowell is expected to be arraigned in Boston Municipal Court.

“Incident 2: At about 10:27 PM, on Saturday, January 21, 2023, officers assigned to District A-1 (Downtown) made a second arrest at the Parkman Bandstand Monument of Andrea Colletti, 27, of Brighton. 

“After attempting to flee on foot, she was apprehended. After a brief struggle ensued, she was placed under arrest and charged with; Damage of Property by Graffiti/Tagging, Destruction or Injury of Personal Property and Resisting Arrest. Colletti is expected to be arraigned in Boston Municipal Court,” BPD said.

According to Fox News:

“The Boston Police Department referred to the suspect as “Jared Dowell.” Clark has spoken in the past about how one of her children is non-binary.”

Many have speculated that the cause of the violence at the Capitol stems from Antifa agent provocateurs. And now a report from none other than CNN seems to confirm, at least, that this is a possibility. Though the January 6 rally got out of hand, it didn’t even closely resemble any past Trump-related protests. Typically, there is no violence, no illegal activity, nothing like that. In fact, elements of it bear a closer semblance to Black Lives Matter riots than to any Trump rally. Despite this, the media has been pushing the narrative that January 6 was all President Trump and his supporters’ fault.

CNN, in a report intended to mock Trump supporters, let some interesting information slip. For instance, nearly 5% of those arrested didn’t vote in the election. But the “news” organization revealed something more damning: many of the alleged Trump supporters who were arrested are registered Democrats:

To determine who voted in November, CNN obtained voting records for more than 80 of the initial arrestees. Most voted in the presidential election, and while many were registered Republicans, a handful were registered as Democrats in those jurisdictions that provided party information — though who someone votes for is not publicly disclosed. Public access to voter history records varies by state, and CNN was unable to view the records of some of those charged.

Sure, most of the mostly peaceful crowd were Republicans who voted for President Trump. But a lot of them were Democrats who showed up for some reason and did things to get themselves and others arrested. It its own, this information proves nothing. But when one considers that BLM activist John Sullivan tweeted about busing people in, it begins to look, as Lewis Carroll wrote, “curiouser and curiouser.”

We may never know to what extent Antifa activists were responsible for the illegal activity at the Capitol, but one thing is for sure: no Democrat would attend a Trump-related event without motives that are not 100 percent ulterior.
