Trump’s lawyer slammed for claiming ‘leader of antifa’ was involved in pro-Trump insurrection

Former president Donald Trump's impeachment lawyer Michael van der Veen blamed the Jan. 6 insurrection on antifa activists -- and was quickly blasted with criticism and fact-checking.

The former president's attorney claimed, without evidence, that one of the first rioters arrested was a "leader of Antifa," which seems to refer to a demonstrator who had been affiliated with Black Lives Matter at one point but who has been rejected by liberal and conservative activist groups alike.

The claims didn't go over well with many viewers.
