PROSECUTION OR PERSECUTION?

Agents were the best of the best who always got their man and acted beyond reproach. FBI officials and Department of Justice prosecutors were seen as defending our nation from serious threats both foreign and domestic. They were deserving of our respect and admiration. Sadly, because of the actions of top officials at the FBI and the Department of Justice, including U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray, that’s no longer the case. It’s why, I believe, the political weaponization of our American justice system is one of the greatest threats we face as a nation and a people.

We are a nation of laws. The cornerstone of our American jurisprudence system has always been that no man is above the law and no man is below it. I believe that still, but what happens when those charged with investigating and prosecuting crimes put their own selfish political interests ahead of the rule of law? What happens when these law enforcement officials use their vast power and taxpayer-funded resources to subvert the rule of law and concoct crimes that never were because they don’t like a particular candidate?

That is exactly what is happening now!

Regardless of your opinion of Donald Trump, you ought to be highly concerned about the actions taken by the FBI and DOJ in using their vast resources and highly-trained agents and prosecutors to interfere with an American Presidential Election. They did so in 2016 with the non-existent “Russia Collusion” hoax. And, they are doing so again, indicting former President, and current candidate, Donald Trump ninety-one times.

The list of recent FBI/DOJ abuses is long and includes: an improper meeting between White House and DOJ Staff with the Special Prosecutor prosecuting Trump in Washington, D.C., the FBI and DOJ refusing any prosecution of Joe Biden for improperly storing classified materials from when he was Vice President next to his Corvette in his Delaware garage, even while indicting Trump on the same charge, offering Hunter a sweetheart deal and waiting to prosecute him until after many of the statutes of limitations had expired (thankfully the federal judge intervened and said no) and the list goes on and on.

Many of the actions taken by Trump—which were used to indict him—were also done by Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and others in 2016, when they argued Trump had not legitimately been elected President. Where were the federal and state indictments for those folks? Where was the indictment for Hillary’s deleted emails, and where are the investigations into Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, for their questionable dealings with China and Ukraine, and the cocaine in the White House? The hypocrisy is deafening.

We can’t have one set of rules for conservatives and another for liberals. We can’t have one set of rules for Republicans and another for Democrats, and we cannot have one set of rules at the FBI and DOJ for Presidential candidates those agency officials like and another for those they don’t. It’s dangerous and is far more insidious than outside collusion because it’s occurring within the highest levels of our government.

It is time for the American people to demand that these, once-respected law enforcement agencies focus on fairly, equitably, and constitutionally enforcing the law and leave the politics to the American people.

We deserve nothing less!
