Former President Donald Trump stated on Wednesday morning that Republicans in Congress need to step up to the plate and take action to pull funding from both the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, at least on a temporary basis, following his arraignment in New York City. Something sure needs to be done because the left continues to use the justice system as a weapon to take out their political enemies.
“REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS SHOULD DEFUND THE DOJ AND FBI UNTIL THEY COME TO THEIR SENSES,” Trump stated in an all caps post published on Truth Social, adding that Democrats have weaponized law enforcement and are trying to rig the outcome of the upcoming election.
“THE DEMOCRATS HAVE TOTALLY WEAPONIZED LAW ENFORCEMENT IN OUR COUNTRY AND ARE VICIOUSLY USING THIS ABUSE OF POWER TO INTERFERE WITH OUR ALREADY UNDER SIEGE ELECTIONS!” the former president added.
“Trump’s post came the morning after his address to a crowd at his Mar-a-Lago home following his arraignment, the latter of which occurred earlier in the day. A circus appeared outside of the courthouse as anti-Trump activists clashed with Trump supporters ahead of the historic event,” Breitbart News reported.
“One anti-Trump activist wearing Black Lives Matter (BLM) patches on her clothes shouted, ‘Trump’s a dick!’ repeatedly toward one man who claimed to be one of Trump’s number one fans. Another woman, who painted herself white, continually called white people racist while seemingly instigating trouble within the crowd,” the report said.
When the woman was confronted about the reason behind her incitement of violence, she said, “Because I’m black and I like violence. I’m an animal. I’m a black animal! Let’s kill all white people! Yeah, baby!”
An individual who claimed to be a friend of the woman’s stated she was just doing “performance art.”
Many Republicans agree that federal agencies are now being used as weapons against conservatives. A recently conducted survey from Insider Advantage discovered that 79 percent of the GOP agree the government is using federal law enforcement against Republicans and conservatives.
Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, is part of those who believe that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has “weaponized our sacred justice system” against the former president.
Alvin Bragg has irreparably damaged our country in an attempt to interfere in our Presidential election.
As he routinely frees violent criminals to terrorize the public, he weaponized our sacred system of justice against President Donald Trump.
The American people will not…

On Tuesday, McCarthy commented that Bragg is “attempting to interfere in our democratic process by invoking federal law to bring politicized charges against President Trump, admittedly using federal funds, while at the same time arguing that the peoples’ representatives in Congress lack jurisdiction to investigate this farce.”
McCarthy, in the same comment, issued a warning that the weaponization of the federal justice process “will be held accountable by Congress,” though it still remains largely unclear what that will look like.

“Top House Republicans, however, are expected to meet this week to discuss how to move forward on that particular front,” the report said.
Let’s hope McCarthy doesn’t get squishy on this and end up turning into just another establishment hack. Heads need to roll over this nonsense. Figuratively speaking, obviously. If we don’t hold people accountable, this madness is going to go on to the point that the First Amendment will no longer exist.
