Republicans Blast ‘Weaponization’ of FBI Against Trump

From WWW.BREITBART.COM

Following the FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Florida, Republican officials in the House and Senate slammed the move, calling it a “weaponization” of federal agencies while warning of the ramifications for average citizens nationwide.

On Monday, the FBI searched former President Trump’s Florida estate, apparently as part of an investigation into whether classified records were taken from the White House to the residence.

The former president lamented the “dark times for our nation” the move signaled in a lengthy statement that claimed agents had even breached his safe.

45: The political persecution of President Donald J. Trump has been going on for years, with the now fully debunked Russia, Russia, Russia Scam, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2, and so much more, it just never ends.

In response, Republicans took to Twitter to blast the raid, while warning of the consequences of the Biden administration’s hiring of 87,000 new IRS agents to increase their enforcement power.

“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,” wrote Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL).

“Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic,” he added.

“If the FBI can raid the home of a former US President, imagine what 87,000 more IRS agents will do to you,” he wrote in yet another tweet.

“The FBI isn’t doing anything about the groups vandalizing Catholic Churches, firebombing Pro-Life groups or threatening Supreme Court justices,” wrote Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). “But they find time to raid Mar A Lago.”

“After todays raid on Mar A Lago what do you think the left plans to use those 87,000 new IRS agents for?” he asked in another tweet.

“One more example of our two-tiered system of justice,” wrote Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI).

“Who do you think they’ll weaponize the 87,000 IRS agents against?” he asked. “The answer is obvious. Their political enemies.”
