ABC News reports:
The wife of Republican Sen. Josh Hawley has filed a criminal complaint against one of the organizers of a protest last month outside their Virginia home.
The individual has been charged with a misdemeanor count of illegally demonstrating, but not charged with making threats or vandalism, as the Missouri senator initially alleged. A local magistrate found enough “probable cause” to issue a summons in the case, according to a police spokesman.
Within hours of the protest, Hawley posted on Twitter that “Antifa scumbags” had “screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door,” condemning it all as “leftwing violence.” But protesters and others disputed his claims, with police saying they had not found evidence of violence at the protest.
