During the riots in New York City, a police car was firebombed by someone who threw a Molotov Cocktail.
The person accused of doing it is a lawyer, if you can believe it. She was arrested.
Now she has been bailed out of jail and the person who bailed her out is a former Obama administration official.

Obama-era ex-intel official secures bail for NYC lawyer suspected of hurling Molotov cocktail in George Floyd unrest
A former high-level Obama administration intelligence official has guaranteed the $250,000 bail for the New York City lawyer who allegedly firebombed an unoccupied NYPD police cruiser early Saturday, calling the suspect her “best friend,” Fox News has confirmed.
The Washington Free Beacon first reported that Salmah Rizvi, who served in the Defense Department and State Department during the Obama administration, went to bat for Urooj Rahman, who was arrested this weekend alongside Pryor Cashman associate Colinford Mattis.
Rizvi, an associate at the law firm Ropes & Gray, told the court: “Urooj Rahman is my best friend and I am an associate at the law firm Ropes & Gray in Washington, D.C. … I earn $255,000 a year.”
The Free Beacon noted that, according to her biography at the Islamic Scholarship Fund, Rizvi’s “high-value work would often inform the president’s daily briefs.” Rahman’s biography on Ropes & Gray’s website states that she was an analyst “focusing primarily on sanctioned finance operations.”

This is nuts.
Urooj Rahman, 31, a Brooklyn lawyer used a beer bottle for a Molotov cocktail in the riots.
How many of this nation’s elites- benefiting from the liberty and prosperity here- hate it to the extent they’re willing to commit violent acts like this. https://t.co/kUu8AcEtXK

Do you think the media will ask Obama for comment?
