Defendants in journalist Andy Ngo’s assault trial were declared not guilty in Portland after the Antifa terrorists’ activist attorney appeared to intimidate members of the jury.
Two Antifa members were on trial for the assault of Ngo as he documented Antifa violence in Portland in June 2020. During his coverage, footage shows several black-clad, masked assailants kicked, punched and hurled objects at Ngo leaving him with a severe brain injury and in need of medical attention.
In 2020, Andy Ngo filed a lawsuit in Portland, Oregon claiming assault and other injuries by alleged members of Antifa.

According to a report by The Post Millennial’s Katie Daviscourt – the only reporter allowed to observe the proceedings – the lawyer for Antifa defendants John Colin Hacker and Elizabeth Renee Richter, Michelle Burrows, in her closing statements told members of the jury she identified as “Antifa,” and claimed her clients’ violence was justifiable.
