Media Freakout: Trump Says He Could Weaponize DOJ, FBI

It’s never sure if Trump is being serious about doing something or simply saying to expose what Democrats are doing

Trump suggests he, other GOP president could use Justice Dept. to indict opponents

Former President Donald Trump mused in an interview Thursday that he or another Republican president could use the Department of Justice to go after and indict political opponents, as he claims his political opponents have done against him.

Trump, the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, told Univision News that the so-called “weaponization” of federal law enforcement “could certainly happen in reverse.”

NMás journalist and CBS News contributor Enrique Acevedo asked Trump: “You say they’ve weaponized the Justice Department, they weaponized the FBI. Would you do the same if you’re reelected?”

“Well, he’s unleashed something that everybody, we’ve all known about this for a hundred years,” Trump said, apparently in reference to President Biden and his administration. “We’ve watched other countries do it and, in some cases, effective and in other cases, the country’s overthrown or it’s been totally ineffective. But we’ve watched this for a long time, and it’s not unique, but it’s unique for the United States. Yeah. If they do this and they’ve already done it, but if they want to follow through on this, yeah, it could certainly happen in reverse. It could certainly happen in reverse. What they’ve done is they’ve released the genie out of the box.”

Yes, they have opened that box. And they think it is completely out of bounds to do the same thing back to them

The former president claimed prosecutors have “done indictments in order to win an election,” and then suggested that if he is president, he could indict someone who is beating him “very badly.”

“They call it weaponization, and the people aren’t going to stand for it,” Trump said. “But yeah. they have done something that allows the next party. I mean, if somebody — if I happen to be president and I see somebody who’s doing well and beating me very badly, I say, ‘Go down and indict them.’ Mostly what that would be, you know, they would be out of business. They’d be out, they’d be out of the election.”

The problem is, what do We The People do to stop it? Democrats and their voters are perfectly fine with weaponizing the entire federal government against their enemies, and don’t think they don’t think Republicans and anyone who doesn’t conform to their beliefs isn’t an enemy in the same way ISIS thinks those who stand opposed are pure enemies. What happens if the GOP does the same? You can bet all the media which has stood by and enabled this will suddenly have an issue.

    Ridiculous. Trump couldn’t even count on his own AGs to enforce the laws. Republican appointees will always use principle over politics to defend the stats quo.

      Republican appointees what are they? You can name the people who are appointed in government that are republican on one hand. That’s the problem. The Democrats overtime have installed a one party system. It doesn’t really matter whether the Republicans or the Democrats are in power cause they’re all the same. And all the agencies and all the departments are all controlled by Democrats regardless of who’s in office. You notice how trump could couldn’t get anything done because Democrats blocked him at every turn. And not elected Democrats within the DOJ and the Department of Education etcetera etcetera control those departments and those agencies and they always side with the Democrats. That’s why it’s only a matter of time before our freedom of speech our freedom of assembly our freedom to own firearms are all taken away.

      We are being ruled over by thousands of little Elwood Dowds. All of whom hate us all of them wanna subjugate us and make us comply. Their joy does not come from liberty it comes from forcing others to do their bidding. And their minds are closed on every subject which is why you can show Elwood a dozen videos and he never changes his mind. And insist that he’s never seen evidence against his beliefs. He’s always right ask him.

    That’s already been done – he’d just aim in a different direction.
