Florida Senator Marco Rubio stopped by Hannity to discuss the recent raid on former President Donald Trump’s residence in Mar-a-Lago; Rubio says Trump supporters are next.
Excerpt below. Watch the clip above.
SEN. RUBIO: I’m telling you the next thing you’re going to see here, Sean, because it’s the playbook. And that is, they are now going to begin to say, “Oh, these Trump supporters, these Republicans, they’re very upset. They’re saying very angry things. We think they might be a threat. We think they’re radical extremists. Let’s start arresting them.” … The next step in this process is going to be that people who are supporters of Donald Trump or just conservatives complaining about this … are going to begin to get labeled as potential insurrectionists and are going to begin to get harassed by law enforcement. That’s the next step in this playbook, sadly.
The raid on former President Trump is unprecedented and the GOP wants answers.
From Fox News:
Congressional Republicans are vowing to ramp up oversight of the Biden White House and the Department of Justice after the FBI’s raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., was the first to make the pledge late Monday after news broke that Mar-a-Lago had been raided by federal agents over Trump’s purported failure to turn over classified documents to the National Archives.
“The Department of Justice has reached an intolerable state of weaponized politicization,” McCarthy said. “When Republicans take back the House, we will conduct immediate oversight of their department, follow the facts, and leave no stone unturned.”
Criminals run rampant across our cities but Garland’s politicized DOJ
is targeting President Trump and Members of Congress. Garland has lost the trust of the American people and will answer for his abusive tactics. https://t.co/ZICX0Tobtz
