Tucker Carlson obtained Attorney General Merrick Garland’s wide-reaching subpoenas demanding dozens of allies of former president Donald Trump hand over all their communications related to “any claim that the vice president and/or president of the Senate had the authority to reject or choose not to count presidential electors.” Carlson said that “any claim you make about American politics is protected explicitly under the First Amendment. That’s our core freedom. 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.” White House official Stephen Miller received a subpoena after outlining a legal remedy. In addition, Trump’s current attorney Boris Epshteyn, and other attorneys that represented Trump, were also subpoenaed. This is historic because 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,” said Carlson. He stated that the point of the subpoenas 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. Republicans are so shocked that they are allowing it to happen.

Carlson also spoke with Trump supporter Lisa Gallagher, who was targeted by the FBI after an anonymous snitch sent them a tip claiming she was at the Capitol on Jan 6.

It is important to note that the Biden regime and their allies spent the 21st anniversary of 9/11 declaring that all their political opposition are domestic terrorists.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Monday obtained Attorney General Merrick Garland’s wide-reaching subpoenas demanding dozens of allies of former president Donald Trump hand over all their communications related to “any claim that the vice president and/or president of the Senate had the authority to reject or choose not to count presidential electors.”

Partial transcript via Fox News:

This show has obtained a subpoena from Merrick Garland’s DOJ issued in the past week and what it demands is both unlawful and without precedent in American history. The subpoena claims to be investigating, “any claim that the vice president and/or president of the Senate had the authority to reject or choose not to count presidential electors.”

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.

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.

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.) 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.

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.”

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.

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.

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. 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. 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. 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.

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.

Carlson also spoke with Trump supporter Lisa Gallagher, who was targeted by the FBI after an anonymous snitch sent them a tip claiming she was at the Capitol on Jan 6.

A few things. First, this is a loaded gun that today it is in the hands of Democrats. Tomorrow it could be in the hands of Republicans. The end result though, is the same. The continual erosion of freedom and liberty. Second, why isn’t there more resistance from the Republicans? Oh yea, most of them are RINO’S who hate Trump just as much as the Democrats. Third, the Deep State plays by two sets of rules. One set is for their friends, ( Hillary, Hunter, etc). The other set is for their enemies.

Who are you fooling? Trump IS part of the controlled opposition designed to fool Republicans …while he appointed Deep State weasels to high office, ushered in the plandemic vaccines, put his Presidential signature to the Evil Noahide laws designed to kill Christians, and more. His daughter is part of the WEF. With heroes or friends like that, who needs any other enemies?

US Plantation democrats are anti-US Constitution globalists best friends, going far beyond just money to the point of a fiat ruling autocracy: a “new” executive/fascist world order. Rinos are more about money, while the Dems have ALL the historic experience in subjugating human beings; and oh yes, fellow American citizens.

-They are the chief insurrectionists, secessionists, seditionists and traitors. I believe Trump documented “the goods” on them while president, and they’re desperately after this evidence which will damn them to perpetual political perdition.

I also surmise evidence will be disseminated through court proceedings and has already been backed-up, thoroughly.
