Former US Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (Hawaii) has accused the Biden administration of targeting their political opponents, claiming that the FBI raid at President Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate is "a disturbing trend."
Although Gabbard isn’t the only Democrat speaking out against the FBI raid against Trump, she’s one of few liberals who are worried about it.
Lawyer Alan Dershowitz believes the FBI raid was unnecessary because they could achieve the same desired result with a subpoena.
Dershowitz said on Hannity that: “It seems to me that they have violated the rules of the Justice Department, they have gone after both a former president and a future candidate – and they darn well better have smoking-gun proof – which I don’t see happening.”
He then went on to say that: “And, clearly, there’s been a double standard here. But, even if it was a single standard, it’s not good enough!”
On Tuesday, Gabbard said on Fox News that: “This is something that every American should be extremely concerned about because this raid is just the latest serious escalation of this disturbing trend that we have seen of blatant abuse of power by those in power to not only protect their friends, but to target their political opponents or frankly anyone who dares to dissent or challenge or disagree or even question what this administration is doing.”
“And there are a number of examples that we can point to not only abuse of power within the Department of Justice, within the FBI or law enforcement agencies, but also the Department of Homeland Security and the IRS.”
Gabbard laid out several examples showing how the Obama and Biden administrations were abusing their power to punish political opponents; for example, she referred to the Department of Homeland Security’s Disinformation Governance Board which aimed to go after organizations deemed conservative and target free speech.
Gabbard noted that: “You know, look to the FBI investigation of Trump for the Russia hoax that didn’t turn out to be anything.”
“You look at the IRS and Lois Lerner directly targeting conservative organizations under the Obama administration. You look at this administration’s Department of Homeland Security’s creation of a Ministry of Truth to go after us, everyday Americans across the country, to tell us, ‘Hey, here is what we say the truth is and is not and what you are allowed to say and what you are not allowed to say.'”
