“Merry Christmas, Here’s a gift from the U.S. attorney.‘ announced Oregon’s U.S. Attorney Amanda Marshall as she related the news of the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office who arrested over 40 white supremacists in what it called “Operation White Christmas.”
The investigation began six months ago, when deputies from the sheriff’s office began infiltrating local white supremacist groups, including European Kindred, Rude Krude Brood and Irish Pride. Most of those arrested joined these gangs while in prison, and their crimes largely consisted of intimidating their own members to prevent them from cooperating with authorities.
The members of the gang were also involved in the production and distribution of methamphetamine, the trafficking of firearms.
Fox News’ Meygan Kelly and FRC’s Tony Perkins were not among those arrested.
