(PresidentialWire.com)- This month, two seemingly unrelated FBI investigations involving politicians from opposing parties and taking place thousands of miles apart have come to light to highlight possible overreach by an agency that analysts claim has become hopelessly politicized.
In Florida, the historic FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate has sparked debates over unfair treatment and claims that it was done to swing the election against the presumptive Republican frontrunner in 2024.
In Michigan, many wonder if the government set up the suspects on trial who are accused of planning to kidnap Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer right before the 2020 presidential election.
Rep. Dan Bishop, R-N.C., noted the timing of the arrests in the alleged kidnapping plot against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and claimed the unprecedented FBI raid at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence is not the first “October surprise” carried out by the agency on behalf of Democrats.
On Monday evening, Bishop tweeted after breaking news of the Mar-a-Lago raid, “The same FBI that thought up a conspiracy to abduct governors before an election now raided Biden’s most likely competitor.”
He said that Democrats applaud the use of law enforcement as a weapon against political rivals. They only care about defeating their opponents; they don’t care about “democracy.”
Bishop joined other Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee in requesting that FBI Director Chris Wray and US Attorney General Merrick Garland give testimony about the Trump raid.
Meanwhile, while the government is weaponizing law enforcement against the GOP, some are trying to use the government to have them killed.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene was the subject of a second “swatting” report in as many days when police were called to her home early on Thursday morning.
According to a report from the Rome Police Department, two officers arrived at Greene’s home in Rome, Georgia, after getting a complaint at 2:53 a.m. ET on Thursday about “a male possibly shooting his family members and then himself.”
According to the investigation, the suspect lied to police responders and said a man “came out as transgender and claimed they might shoot his family and then himself.”
He left Greene’s address when he called through an online chat that seemed to be a suicide crisis line.
According to the police report, the caller identified himself as Wayne Greene and threatened to shoot anyone who attempted to stop him from killing himself.
The idea behind swatting is to get innocent people killed.
Given the FBI’s recent behaviors, one wonders if the swatting
