Rep. Suzanne Bonamici, also a Democrat, said she called for the investigation and was reviewing it’s findings and recommendations. “The Trump Administration flamed tensions and sparked fear among the people of Portland for months,” she said in a statement. “I will continue to work my colleagues and with the Biden Administration to make sure Federal law enforcement have the training and tools they need to appropriately respond to conflict — in the very limited circumstances they may be needed — without resorting to militarized overreaction in violation of the Constitutional rights of Americans.”
