Violent Seattle #antifa militant, Nicholas James Armstrong/Nikki Jameson, has played a volunteer "security" role in the Seattle "autonomous zone." She is barred from owning firearms and dangerous weapons in King County but was seen carrying a sidearm on the street. #CHAZ pic.twitter.com/Eh5z7pDlA2— Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) June 20, 2020
