TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-FL, warned that Democrats in power will “criminalize opposition” in light of the FBI raid of Former President Donald Trump.
“A group takes power. One of the first things that group does is they begin to persecute and go after their political opponents. And then, when the supporters of their political opponents begin to complain about it, they begin to target them and they criminalize opposition and that’s what’s happening here now,” he went on.
“You see their public statements, they are demanding, they want Donald trump arrested, they want him charged right now. They wanted him charged months ago, years ago.”
Rubio said Democrats will begin to label Trump supporters and conservatives “potential insurrectionists” who will be “harassed by law enforcement.”
“That’s the next step in this playbook sadly, you know, we went through three years senator, three long years where we now know that FISA warrants were obtained using an unverifiable dirty Russian dossier that was bought and paid for by Donald trump’s opponent in 2016 Hillary Clinton and all of that information was false.”
At a speedy press conference, President Joe Biden’s Attorney General, Merrick Garland, said that he “personally approved” the decision to seek a search warrant against Former President Donald Trump.
“The Department does not take such a decision lightly,” he said. “Where possible, it is standard practice to seek less intrusive means as an alternative to a search and to narrowly scope any search that is undertaken.”
Garland cited a “substantial public interest” in regards to the FBI raid as his reason for the remarks.
The federal government received criticism for raiding Trump, who is a potential 2024 nominee for President and a member of the opposing political party of Biden.
“The raid of MAL is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves,” Gov. Ron DeSantis said. “Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic.”
Fox News reports that the raid is related to materials Trump allegedly brought to his private residence after his presidency concluded.
CNN legal analyst Paul Callan said that the Biden Administration’s raid on Former President Donald Trump, a member of the opposing political party, would not be warranted even if Trump violated the Presidential Records Act.
Eric Trump said that the search was related to the Presidential Records Act: “Sean, the purpose for the raid from what they said was because the National Archives wanted to, you know, corroborate whether or not Donald Trump had any documents in his possession.”
“If this becomes a Presidential Records Act Violation, not more, do you think it is enough to warrant all this? [FBI raid]” the CNN host asked Callan.
“No, it’s not enough to warrant all this, and this is a daring and dangerous move by the Department of Justice to serve a warrant on a former president and to raid his personal residence,” Callan responded.
