Statement from Brooke Rollins, President and CEO, America First Policy Institute

August 08, 2022

“The action today by Joe Biden’s Justice Department is an unprecedented weaponization of federal law enforcement against a former President of the United States. This marks the third recent election in which the FBI meddled in the outcome – each time against the 45th President of the United States (2016 Russiagate, 2020 Hunter Biden Coverup, and now 2022).

Today’s law enforcement action against former President Trump takes our democracy to a dangerous place.

Americans are terrified right now due to historic high crime and drugs, gang members, and children being trafficked across our non-existent Southern Border.

Americans want law and order in their communities. Police in their neighborhoods. Violent criminals behind bars. They don’t want resources wasted on political witch hunts or 87,000 new IRS agents to investigate middle-class Americans, their churches, and their small businesses. If it can happen to former President Trump, it can happen to any of us.”
