A white supremacist group, known for its part in the deadly "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, is apparently trying to indoctrinate students on San Diego college campuses. That's according to a recent leak of more than 200,000 online chat logs, exposed by The San Diego Union-Tribune in story over the weekend.

Reporter Andrew Dyer wrote, "A Union-Tribune review of the chat logs reveals a local branch of Identity Evropa has visited local colleges at least a dozen times since Fall 2017, though flyers first appeared at San Diego State University the year before. The chat logs also refer to publicity and recruitment activities at Southern California colleges as recently as last month."

Dyer joins Midday Edition Monday with more on the story.
