Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee recently appeared in an interview in which she shredded the FBI for acting in what she characterized as a politicized way and for displaying an extreme hatred of former President Donald Trump.
She noted that the FBI and DOJ are now going after Trump despite having not brought charges against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for her email server and attempts to hide what she had on that email server, a blatant violation of law. As she put it: “What we make of these charges is that you have two tiers of justice and of course, the DOJ and FBI had been carrying that out for years. You’d look at the 2016 election, and Hillary Clinton with the 33,000 emails with taking a hammer to devices and destroying them, with running bleach bits on the server.”
Continuing, she added that not only did former Secretary of State Clinton not face repercussions for that illegal activity, but that numerous former presidents have done the same thing Trump is accused of doing and faced no raids from the FBI jackboots for it, saying, “The server was not properly maintained. She did all of that as the Secretary of State. You look at the lack of attention given to documents that Bill Clinton, Joe Biden and others have had. Barack Obama, President Bush, and then you see the way President Trump was treated with the documents that he took.”
And what does that show? That the FBI is acting in a politicized way: there’s a “cabal” of leftist commissars within the FBI that are wielding law enforcement authority to attack the former president and creating a two-tiered justice system. “This brings up the question of two tiers of justice. It brings forward the question of a political cabal within the FBI. We’ve got lots of great men and women that work in the FBI and are true to the mission of the agency,” Sen. Blackburn said. Adding to that, Blackburn then said, “And then you have those that have formed a political cabal, who use the power of the agency to weaponize it against political opponents.”
That’s not all. Sen. Blackburn also released a powerful statement in which she shredded the FBI for its obvious and “unprecedented vendetta” against former President Donald Trump, saying that what the FBI is now doing in an attempt to lock him up is unprecedented and would have been thought “unthinkable” even a few years ago.
As she put it: “From the time President Trump first announced his candidacy, the FBI has displayed an unprecedented vendetta against him. A few years ago, it would have been unthinkable for an Attorney General to approve an FBI raid on the home of a former president.”
And why are they doing that? As Sen. Blackburn put it, the FBI is going after Trump to work with the Democrats, indicting Trump to distract the news from the recent Biden scandal as it also went after Trump to distract from what Hillary had done.
As she said: “All the while, the Left is employing a playbook of ‘distract and deflect’ that feels eerily familiar. After Hillary Clinton got caught deleting thousands of classified emails from her private server as Secretary of State, the FBI and Democratic politicians fabricated a plan to accuse President Trump of Russian collusion. Now that President Biden is reportedly involved in a $5 million bribery scheme with a foreign nation, what does the DOJ do? Attempt to interfere with a congressional investigation into Biden and go after Trump instead. This is the pinnacle of two tiers of justice at work.”
