“I think it would cause physical violence in this country that we haven’t seen since the second, since the first Civil War. I think it would become the second Civil War,” InfoWars’ Will Johnson says in the video, which was posted to Twitter.

Journalist Nick Martin was the first to notice the inclusion of the InfoWars host.
“Wait is this InfoWars host Will Johnson being interviewed as a just a random ‘Trump supporter’ in this video?” Martin questioned in response to the video.

Martin told the Daily Dot he recognized Johnson from previous InfoWars videos.

While CBS did not respond to Martin’s inquiries regarding the video, it did add an editor’s note to its Twitter and Facebook posts.
“After publication of this video, CBS News learned that the second man interviewed is Will Johnson, a media personality who has contributed to InfoWars,” CBS wrote in response to its now-ratioed tweet.

In addition to InfoWars, Johnson is the founder of Unite America First, another far-right advocacy group.
“He now works to inform Americans of the evil, lawless and divisive ways of the democrat party,” Johnson’s site reads.
