(RepublicanWire.org) – Former Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) asserted Tuesday that if the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Monday raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate was merely about “inconsequential archives,” then “it will be viewed as a political tactic” and thwart any credibility of the January 6 Committee.
“DOJ must immediately explain the reason for its raid & it must be more than a search for inconsequential archives or it will be viewed as a political tactic and undermine any future credible investigation & legitimacy of January 6 investigation,” tweeted Cuomo.
Cuomo wasn’t the only democrat to criticize the raid. Former Democratic presidential candidate and entrepreneur Andrew Yang also condemned the FBI raid.
Ted Cruz Tweeted in response to Yang, “Dems panicking. Realizing that abusing DOJ/FBI is going to back fire.”
Former Trump advisor Steve Bannon told Fox News that “the FBI right now is the Gestapo.”
“We’re at war,” Bannon said. “We’re at a political and ideological war, and they’ve obviously weaponized the Justice Department.”
“This had to go up the chain of command through Merrick Garland,” Bannon added. “This is about pure power politics.”
“They’re absolutely petrified that Trump is going to announce in the next couple of weeks and win the Republican nomination, win the White House,” he explained.
(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.”
(RepublicanWire.org) – In a recent edition of “The View,” co-host Sunny Hostin accused Black and Latino Republicans of being traitors for their political beliefs, calling them “oxymorons.”
Co-host Lindsey Granger, a Black Republican defended her conservative values that Hostin really pounced. While Granger offered to talk about them, Hostin interjected to ask if she identifies as a Republican, which Granger affirmed that she did.
The scene got particularly heated after Hostin said, under her breath, it’s an oxymoron for her to be a Black Republican. She also accused Granger of being a Trump supporter.
Granger fired back by turning towards Hostin, saying she is an oxymoron, as a Catholic who disagrees with abortion on religious grounds, though she still wants abortions to be legal.
The heated exchange included accusations of how Hostin repeatedly claimed “I don’t understand either of you,” as she specified “I don’t understand Black Republicans and I don’t understand Latino Republicans.”
Hostin also slammed Navarro and former White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham for supporting the Republican Party while being “complicit” in causing division.
Following the segment, Republican women chimed in to take issue with Hostin’s remarks.
