Democrats, Kamala Talk About Donald Trump ‘Weaponizing’ DOJ — But Who Did it First?

Vice President Kamala Harris recently warned San Diego donors that former President Donald Trump has “threatened to weaponize the Department of Justice against his political enemies” if they are elected.

Does our completely clueless vice president not understand that half the country believes the Biden-Harris White House has been doing that same thing for over three years? Although Joe Biden rambles on about threats to democracy, his Department of Justice (DOJ) has created the ultimate threat to democracy — waged war ruthlessly on Catholics, pro-life advocates, parents’ groups, MAGA Republicans — everyone and anyone who doesn’t buy into their progressive agenda.

It isn’t just the outrageous legal persecution of the former president—the four flimsy cases brought against Trump, each less believable than the last. It isn’t just Trump’s conviction on ridiculous charges brought by a politically motivated district attorney overseen by a clearly conflicted judge.

It’s also the pursuit and prosecution of allies of Trump, including Paul Manafort, Peter Navarro, Roger Stone, George Papadopoulos, Rick Gates, Allen Weisselberg, and Steve Bannon — who have all served time in prison. This is all in an era when almost no one ends up behind bars — including individuals who are repeat violent offenders.

The Biden Justice Department additionally recently indicted former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, lawyer John Eastman, former Trump White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, and a dozen Arizona Republicans for putting together what they call a “fake electoral ballot” to attempt to try to prevent Joe Biden from becoming president.

Several individuals were also indicted in a Georgia case that alleged election fraud, which, all together, charged 19 people associated with Trump.

The “fake elector” charges are significant because they are being brought in numerous swing states, including Georgia, Michigan, Arizona, and Nevada. Wisconsin might be next. Coincidence?

Unbelievably, Peter Navarro and Steve Bannon have both been sentenced to jail time on charges of contempt of Congress for refusing to testify in front of the January 6 Committee. Incredibly, because of our nation’s history, they are the very few who have been sentenced to serve time for the crime. 

Both have appealed their cases. Navarro — the first White House official ever imprisoned for contempt — argued the case against him represented an “unprecedented assault on the constitutional separation of powers.”

Some may recall that during the presidency of Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress by a bipartisan vote for withholding information about a gun-trafficking investigation, Operation Fast and Furious, that resulted in the deaths of several Americans. Because his department wouldn’t likely pursue legal charges against him, it was a vote for show that didn’t go anywhere.

Charges of contempt are threatened to force people to appear in front of Congressional committees; they haven’t been used to lock people up — until now, under President Joe Biden.

Attorney General Merrick Garland directed the FBI to crack down on what authorities in education dubbed “domestic terrorism.” Still, he was a grass-roots movement of parents protesting Covid-19 rules that impacted their children’s schooling. GOP members in Congress were furious at what some called the DOJ’s tactics for intimidation after dozens of parents were investigated.

Biden’s Department of Justice has also been investigating and spying on conservative Catholics. A House Judiciary Committee report states in the notorious Richmond memorandum, brought to the attention of Congress in 2023 by whistleblowers, “the FBI singled out Americans who are pro-life, pro-family, and support the biological basis for sex and gender distinction as potential domestic terrorists.” Was it justified? Nope, it was political. The memorandum recognized ‘the run-up to the next general election cycle’ as a critical time frame. It cited the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision overturning Roe v. Wade as a flash point.”

Millions of voters believe there are two justice systems. In 2022, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) fined the Democratic National Committee and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign over $100,000 for lying about payments made to finance the fraudulent Steele Dossier, used during the 2016 election to discredit Donald Trump. 

Politico reported that the FEC found “probable cause to believe” that both the national party and campaign “misreported [ed] the purpose of certain disbursements” when they claimed funds paid to the Democratic law firm Perkins Coie were legal expenses when some of the money actually went to “paying Fusion GPS through Perkins Coie to conduct opposition research on Donald Trump.”

Neither the DNC officials involved nor Clinton was ever tried for this political and financial trickery, for using lies and deceiving the public to subvert the election. Trump has just been convicted for behavior that is arguably less fraudulent.

Likewise, former President Donald Trump has been indicted for mishandling secret documents. At the same time, President Joe Biden, who has also kept classified materials, was let off because of being an elderly man with “diminished faculties.”

Recall that Attorney General Merrick Garland actually concealed the discovery of Biden’s wrongdoing, which occurred six days before the midterm elections, until following the crucial vote. The discovery was embarrassing since Joe Biden had slammed Trump weeks prior for his “irresponsible” handling of the nation’s secrets.

Looks like election interference to me. 

Former President Trump recently said, “They’re not after me; they’re after you, and I just happened to be standing in the way.”

So true.
