The Biden regime and Attorney General Merrick Garland’s DOJ have issued subpoenas to dozens of Trump supporters and Fox News host Tucker Carlson is ringing alarm bells over it, listing a number of the former president’s political opponents being targeted.
The media and the administration have incessantly been calling former President Trump and MAGA Republicans a threat to democracy that has to be addressed. They circled the wagons on 9-11 and basically compared them to al Qaeda in an alarming sentiment that presages political persecution on a level this country has potentially never seen.
In a chilling act of political intimidation, up to 50 Trump supporters had their homes raided, phones seized or were subpoenaed last Friday by the Department of Justice. The scope of the subpoenas is intentionally wide and vague.
“Now keep in mind that any claim you make as an American citizen about electors, any claim you make about American politics, period, is protected explicitly under the First Amendment. That’s our core freedom. It’s why we live here. It’s why we’re proud to be Americans. It’s why so many American servicemen died protecting our country. Those are the freedoms that they fought to preserve. That’s why nobody prosecuted leading Democrats in 2016 when they sought to reject electors for Donald Trump. Right. It’s why none of those people, including Kamala Harris, is now in jail,” Carlson noted on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
People whose personal communications were subpoenaed by the DOJ include @BernardKerik, @BorisEP, @JennaEllisEsq, @StephenM, John Eastman, Joe DiGenova, @RudyGiuliani, and Sidney Powell.

“But right now, according to the subpoena that we have obtained, Merrick Garland’s DOJ is demanding all communication from the following people on this topic, and let’s be clear before we read their names, that it is not clear what the investigation is actually about and that’s the most terrifying part,” he asserted.
“What is this? On what grounds are you demanding my private communications with people? They never say but included in this precedent-breaking sweep of political opponents of the Biden White House would be former White House adviser Bernie Kerik, who was the former police commissioner of New York City; Boris Epshteyn, who is the current attorney for Donald Trump. At no time in American history has it been okay to grab the personal communications of someone’s lawyer because those are privileged. Not anymore,” Carlson said.
“Matt Morgan; Justin Clark; Kenneth Chesebro and Mike Roman; RNC official Joshua Findlay; Trump Attorneys John Eastman, Jenna Ellis, Joe DiGenova, James Troupis, Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Victoria Toensing, Cleta Mitchell, and Bruce Marks. We could go on and on and on and on,” he continued.
So Biden’s DOJ is now sending subpoenas and going after Trump allies, including his lawyers. Has a sitting presidents DOJ ever gone after their political opponents like this?

He then elaborated how former White House official Stephen Miller is being targeted as an enemy of the regime.
“The DOJ is now going after former White House official Stephen Miller, a frequent guest on this show, with a subpoena. Why? Well, it could be because Stephen Miller went on this network and said, ‘If we win these cases in the courts, then we can direct the alternate state of electors are certified,'” the conservative pundit explained.
“In other words, he didn’t call for the insurrection, much less violence or a coup. He called for alternate electors to be seated if the court ordered them to be seated. In other words, he was following the constitutionally prescribed process post-election. He’s doing what is supposed to do. He was following the rules, but under Joe Biden, that apparently is now a crime. By the way, every one of these people has to hire lawyers to defend him or herself and a lot of them at this point, after two years of harassment by Joe Biden, can’t afford it,” Carlson continued.
“In addition, we should say, we’ve obtained the subpoena, this subpoena goes on to demand the communications from dozens of other Republicans and people who have spoken to them, including State Representative Jake Hoffman in Arizona, Republican National Committee member Kathleen Berden in Michigan, former U.S. Representative Lou Barletta in the state of Pennsylvania and Republican State Party Secretary James DeGraffenreid in Nevada, among dozens and dozens of others,” he added.
2/2 were served w/extremely broad subpoenas, or warrant for phone/device. Our clients @america1stwomen are among those targeted for their peaceful, First-Amendment-protected, speech about 2020 election. These bullying tactics are designed to target & intimidate Trump supporters.

Carlson, like so many other Americans, wants to know what is going on here. It smacks of totalitarianism and political persecution of opponents. He contends it is blatantly unconstitutional.
“So, what is this about? It can’t possibly be about January 6, the fake insurrection, the only insurrection in history with no guns, the insurrection in which the only person shot to death was a Trump supporter,” he told viewers.
“No, the point of this is to suppress political dissent, to hobble an entire political party and to keep any of these people from ever participating in American politics again and, by the way, the cost to each one of these individuals or to any person at whose house the FBI shows up is enormous. Ask anybody you saw the FBI showed up with guns at their home what that’s like,” Carlson commented. “By accusing these people of insurrection for asking questions about electors by comparing them to Confederate soldiers, Merrick Garland’s DOJ plans to disenfranchise them if not jail them. Really?”

“So, prohibit people from participating in American politics in the name of democracy? Too ironic to be real? Oh, it’s real. It just happened in New Mexico. A state judge in New Mexico just removed an elected county commissioner from office, overturning the will of the voters. Why? Because he had dared to exercise his constitutional rights by participating in the election justice protest on January 6,” Carlson said.
“So, this is a full-blown political purge. That’s not a talking point. It is not in any sense a conspiracy theory. It’s completely real and it began shortly after January 6 when Republicans, as usual, just as they were after the death of George Floyd, were so blown back, so intimidated by the aggression of the rhetoric from the other side that they let it happen,” Carlson posited.
He went on to discuss the consequences of not standing up to leftist intimidators and how this is all now ratcheting up and only has one end in sight.
“And because they let it happen, as with the BLM riots, its effects are accelerating now. So, if you’re accused of supporting Joe Biden’s political opponents, you could be visited by armed agents from Joe Biden’s FBI. As you reported last year in our documentary, which was mocked, turned out to be prescient, it has happened to people living as far away as remote Homer, Alaska,” he pointed out.
This is disgusting. The DOJ is doing this all for political reasons and our country is now over. The institutions that should be in the middle have now become weaponized. This is scary folks.

“So, why is this happening? Because no one pushed back against it. Why did the lunatics get to defund the police, something that no normal person supported, the overwhelming majority of Americans never supported them, but they did it anyway. How did they get to do that? Because there is no opposition, no one pushed back. George Floyd died. They started screaming, calling everyone a racist and everyone just obeyed their most ludicrous demands,” Carlson told his viewers.
This is no longer politics as usual in the United States and Carlson is warning that it has to be stopped.
Also gives an excuse to ban/censor them and their ability to spread their opinions and information before the elections.

“January 6 is exactly the same thing. ‘It was an insurrection. It was a racist insurrection.’ No, it wasn’t. What are you talking about? No one said that. No one pushed back at all. So, it got completely out of control, and at this point, it’s not just a threat to the Republican Party. On one level, a lot of conservatives say, ‘Well, who cares? Mitch McConnell is inconvenienced? No one cares,'” he lamented.
“That’s not what it’s about. It’s a threat to the American system. This kind of behavior, politicized federal law enforcement, is a threat to democracy. It’s a threat to the system we live under. It’s a threat to everything we have that’s valuable. We cannot allow this, but no one’s even mentioning it,” Carlson sadly concluded.
