In a surprising turn of events, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan announced that far-left Marxist organizations infiltrated the city of Seattle.
Mayor Announces Government Infiltration
The infiltration penetrated the city government itself and the mayor called for the removal of city council member Kshama Sawant for “recklessly” undermining safety and violating laws.
Durkan’s shocking announcement came in the form of a letter addressed to city council president M. Lorena Gonzalez, the Nationalist Review reported.
“This letter requests that the Council exercise its Charter duties and fully investigate Councilmember Kshama Sawant and determine if action should be taken,” the letter reads.
The accusations against Sawant include her enabling the Socialist Alternative party to decide on the hiring and firing practices of city council employees. She allegedly led an illegal protest inside a closed city hall, doxed the mayor’s address, and engaged in electioneering on the city council’s dime.
The following are excerpts from the mayor’s letter involving the inappropriate actions being alleged against Sawant:
Socialist Alternative Party Gave Hiring and Firing Orders
Relinquishing authority of her office and disregarding City employment and hiring rules. In Councilmember Sawant’s case the media has uncovered documents suggesting that she may have effectively delegated decisions regarding hiring and termination of City employees to an outside political organization. According to the documents, the National Executive Committee and the Seattle Executive Committee of the Socialist Alternative party had authority over staffing decisions for the City Council office. At least one employee was allegedly fired as the result of a decision of the Executive Committee of this political organization, and that employee protested that the firing was the result of political retaliation. See here and here.
Sawant Allowed Rioters Access to Vandalize City Hall
Using her official position, gave access to City facilities to admit hundreds of individuals at night into City Hall when it was closed to the public because of COVID-19 and failing to follow the City’s COVID-19 precautions for the visitors. Her actions put the safety of individuals and City workers at risk, and it led to janitorial staff making complaints about the incident because of safety concerns.
She Encouraged CHOP/CHAZ Insanity
Using her official position and possibly staff to encourage attendants at a rally she led on June 28, 2020 to illegally “occupy” City property, the East Precinct, at a time the City has been trying to de-escalate the situation and ask individuals to depart because of violence in the area. Days earlier, members of the Black community had asked that this facility be restored as an active police facility, particularly in light of the fact it was created at the request of the Black community by actions of former Councilmember Sam Smith to serve the Central District. We have had a series of devastating gun violence around this location, including early yesterday morning on Capitol Hill.
Sawant Took Protesters to Mayor’s Residence
Using her official position to lead a march to my home, despite the fact that it was publicly known I was not there, and she and organizers knew that my address was protected under the state confidentiality program because of threats against me due largely to my work as U.S. Attorney. All of us have joined hundreds of demonstrations across the City, but Councilmember Sawant and her followers chose to do so with reckless disregard of the safety of my family and children. In addition, during or after Councilmember Sawant’s speech at that rally, her followers vandalized my home by spray-painting obscenities
Mayor Fights with Trump
Mayor Durkan has been a vocal antagonist with President Trump, challenging that the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone/Occupation Protest (CHAZ/CHOP) was not a “lawless wasteleand of anarchist insurrection” but rather a “peaceful expression of our community’s collective grief.”
“#CHAZ is not a lawless wasteland of anarchist insurrection – it is a peaceful expression of our community’s collective grief and their desire to build a better world”

It looks like Trump is not the only person Mayor Durkan is sparring with at the moment. It is unknown if Sawant will face any consequences for her part in helping the Seattle city government crumble to a Marxist regime.
