Roughly two dozen Republicans serving in the House of Representatives have signed and sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, urging him to look into the source of funding that has helped to fuel riots and violence in American cities over the past several months.

"Many cities across our country have been rocked by rioters associated with Antifa and other organizations," reads the letter, which was first obtained by Fox News. "These individuals seem to be using cowardly efforts to commandeer otherwise peaceful protests. These actions constitute domestic terrorism and federal charges must be brought against those who are aiding and abetting the criminal actions of these organizations."

The letter also asked for the Department of Justice and FBI "to bring to justice those who have funded these criminal organizations and to give justice to the communities who have been devastated by these individuals and organizations."

? In August, a Senate subcommittee held a hearing on violence caused this summer by Antifa, a radical and violent left-wing group.
