Tucker Carlson Reveals ‘Terrifying’ Subpoenas for Friends of Trump

Fox News host Tucker Carlson has revealed Attorney General Merrick Garland’s Department of Justice has unleashed another scheme against President Donald Trump and his allies, using dozens of “terrifying” subpoenas to demand unprecedented details about private communications.

Targeted, among others, are several lawyers who have represented Trump in recent years.

BizPacReview reported Carlson was “ringing alarm bells” because of the agenda already evident from the media and the Biden administration to “incessantly” call Trump and his GOP supporters a “threat to democracy.”

“They circled the wagons on 9-11 and compared them to al-Qaida in an alarming sentiment that presages political persecution on a level this country has potentially never seen,” the report said.

The report pointed out, “In a chilling act of political intimidation, up to 50 Trump supporters had their homes raided, phones seized or were subpoenaed last Friday by the Department of Justice. The scope of the subpoenas is intentionally wide and vague.”

“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,” Carlson noted on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Targets included Bernard Kerik, Jenna Ellis, Stephen Miller, John Eastman, Joe DiGenova, Rudy Giuliani, and Sidney Powell, among a long list of others.

Carlson continued, “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 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 OK 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,” he said.

He explained how Miller might have come to be a target of Joe Biden.

“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.”

Carlson said the Biden DOJ even was demanding personal communications from “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.”

Carlson accused, then, the White House and the Biden administration of launching the assault “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.”

He called Biden’s latest scheme “a full-blown political purge. That’s not a talking point. It is not in any sense a conspiracy theory,” he said.
