President Donald J. Trump called out the Department of Justice and FBI Wednesday for targeting his supporters with what appear to be politically motivated investigations.
“Dozens of amazing Patriots who stand for America, including wonderful young people, are being targeted and harassed by the Department of ‘Justice’ and FBI,” Trump noted on Truth Social. “Is this payback for Liz Cheney being ANNIHILATED by 40 points and DESTROYING what was left of the Unselect Committee’s credibility?”
In a subsequent post, he continued: “Our Country is being destroyed by the Radical Left Democrats—stock market crash, no southern border, rampant crime, military failure, and much more. Meanwhile, all they want to do is take vengeance on the 45th President, me, and those who support me. We will never back down. Make America Great Again!”
Trump’s remarks followed concerning reports that the FBI approached dozens of Trump supporters last week with subpoenas and warrants.
Further, on Tuesday, MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell divulged that the FBI had surrounded him earlier that day and seized his cell phone, which they had a warrant to take.
Upon learning the news, President Trump took to Truth Social to spread the word.
“Breaking News: Mike Lindell, ‘THE Pillow Guy,’ was just raided by the FBI,” he wrote Tuesday night. “We are now officially living in a Weaponized Police State, Rigged Elections, and all. Our Country is a laughing stock all over the World. The majesty of the United States is gone. Can’t let this happen. TAKE BACK AMERICA!”
Adding to those troubling reports, per Just the News, Special Prosecutor John Durham revealed in court filings Tuesday that the primary source for the bogus and defamatory Steele dossier was a paid “confidential human source” for the FBI until the fall of 2020 – just before the presidential election.
“The revelation means that the FBI first fired former MI6 agent Christopher Steele, the author of the Hillary Clinton-funded dossier, as a human source in November 2016 for having unauthorized contacts with the news media,” the outlet reported. “And it then turned around a few months later and hired Steele’s primary informer to work with the bureau even after determining some of Danchenko’s statements in the Steele dossier were uncorroborated or exaggerated.”
Sharing the story via Truth Social, President Trump wrote: “This is a bombshell! The FBI was paying people to steal the 2020 Presidential Election from me. There has never been anything like this in the History of our Country—and then, we are supposed to trust them with documents that they illegally took from my home, Mar-a-Lago? They are not trustworthy.”
Since the raid on Trump’s home, many voters have lost faith in the FBI’s impartiality, likening the bureau to Nazi Germany’s “Gestapo” police.
However, with the midterm elections just around the corner and the announcement of a 2024 Trump presidential campaign expected to come at any time, voters will no doubt be watching closely to see how well the FBI’s claims of political neutrality hold up.
