(RepublicanWire.org) – Following the persecution and prosecution of former Trump aide and committed conservative Steve Bannon, who was dragged before a court for “contempt of Congress” over confusion regarding executive privilege and the committee, former Democrat Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard spoke out, breaking from her former party in slamming the politicized DOJ for its persecution of a political enemy of the Biden regime.
She did so in a tweet that included her summation of what has so far happened and a video in which she tore into the DOJ with a vengeance, blasting it for how politicized it has gotten.
Gabbard tweeted, “Steve Bannon has been charged with contempt of Congress & found guilty, while Brennan, Clapper & others who lied to Congress have never been charged or prosecuted. This just shows yet again how the DOJ has been weaponized by those in power to go after their political opponents.”
Gabbard focused particularly, as you can hear in the video, on the contrast between how Steve Bannon has been treated with how others who, unlike Bannon, blatantly lied to Congress and engaged in obviously illegal, dangerous activity have been treated.
Speaking on that, Tulsi noted, “No matter what you think or feel about Steve Bannon the fact that he has been found guilty of contempt of Congress, yet others have faced no consequences at all.”
