Prominent political activist Steve Schmidt on Friday demanded the National Guard be deployed to deal with the Department of Homeland Security agents terrorizing Portland.

Shocking videos have emerged of what are believed to be DHS agents. The men are clad in camouflage military fatigues. They do not have badges nor patches identifying who they are, but many have "police" patches on their body armor vests.

A protester was almost killed after being shot in the head by the security forces.

The agents have also been snatching protesters off the streets in what are essentially renditions.

Gov. Kate Brown (D-OR) accused Trump of doing it to boost his embattled 2020 re-election campaign.

Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf has been blasted for a "blatant abuse of power."

All of this was too much for Lincoln Project strategist Steve Schmidt, who is calling on Gov. Brown to call out the National Guard to arrest the DHS troops.

Here is the thread he posted on Twitter:
