Sometime in May, the Department of Homeland Security Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli orders DHS official Brian Murphy to alter threat assessment documents.

Cuccinelli tells Murphy to downplay the threat of white supremacy groups to national security and fabricate the threat of left-wing groups like Antifa (which is not actually a group). Throughout May, June, and July, Acting Secretary Chad Wolf repeats the message.

Wolf echoed Cuccinelli’s concerns during a meeting with Murphy in July 2020, according to the complaint. When Murphy declined to sign off on edits proposed by Wolf’s team, Wolf allegedly assigned other DHS officials to complete the assessment without Murphy’s involvement.

In his complaint, Murphy said the final version of the HTA [Homeland Threat Assessment] is likely to “more closely resemble a policy document with references to ANTIFA and ‘anarchist’ groups than an intelligence document” compiled by analysts.

Between May and July 2020, Wolf and Cuccinelli pressured Murphy to “modify intelligence assessments to ensure they matched up” with Trump’s public comments about antifa and “anarchist” groups. Trump has claimed for months that “left-wing extremism” and antifa are a major threat to the safety of Americans, despite the lack of evidence to support his claims.

Murphy said he declined to alter the intelligence assessments “based upon political rhetoric.”
