President Joe Biden reportedly received a scathing critique from former Representative Tulsi Gabbard, who just defected from the Democratic Party and declared herself an independent.
During a Friday interview on Fox News’ “Hannity,” Gabbard made the remarks, asserting that Biden was utilizing the federal government to eliminate his main political rival.
“A death rattle of any democracy is when a sitting president uses that state security apparatus to go after political opponents and cover up lies and crimes committed by himself or his family. Biden is doing that now. His actions make it clear he believes himself to be not the enforcer of the rule of law but the exception to it.” Gabbard said.
“Let’s start with the vision that our founders had for this country, which is that we would be a nation of laws, not of men. But every single day we see more and more evidence coming out about how President Biden and his administration are politicizing the Department of Justice to serve their own personal and political interests ahead of the interests of the country.” she continued.
“We can recognize that they are directly and intentionally undermining that very foundation of our democracy which is the rule of law,” she added.
The 2020 presidential candidate and former congresswoman went on to explain how the Biden administration was specifically undermining the system by were going after former President Trump and his supporters as well as by taking measures to shield and protect themselves, specifically Joe Biden and his dogged son Hunter Biden.
“The American people need to recognize very clearly what is happening here, the threat to our democracy and we have to make the decision to put a stop to this, to not allow this to go on. Because otherwise, we’ll find ourselves in a situation in the United States of America where this is now the new norm. Whatever party becomes the party in power will say, ‘Hey, look, the last guy did this. We can use the power of law enforcement, we can use our Department of Justice to go after political opponents.” she concluded.
