Following the raid at Donald Trump’s Florida Home, those who support the former president may be targeted by the Biden administration, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) warned in a recent media interview.
"And then when the supporters of their political opponents begin to complain about it, they begin to target them and they criminalize opposition. And that's what's happening here now.
"[The Democrats] took power, they're demanding ... they want Donald Trump arrested, they want him charged right now ... And I'm telling you, the next thing you're gonna see here—because it's the playbook ... The next step in this process is going to be that people who are supporters of Donald Trump or just conservatives complaining about this … are going to begin to get labeled as potential insurrectionists and are going to begin to get harassed by law enforcement.
"That's the next step in this playbook, sadly,” he said of the raid.
Rubio, vice chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, has sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, demanding an explanation of the agency’s actions.
The FBI’s actions against Trump are something the agency has “never taken” against any other president. All Americans have the “right to know” why the FBI raided Trump’s residence.
Rubio asked for a meeting with the FBI to understand why the agency failed to inform the congressional intelligence committee leadership about the matter, as it has done with previous sensitive cases.
Third World Justice System?The FBI has attracted severe criticism for its decision to raid Trump's home, with Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) calling the search “3rd World country stuff,” in an Aug. 9 post on Twitter. He demanded immediate answers from the FBI.
The terrorist trials in east Africa that he was involved in were handled more impartially than how the U.S. Department of Justice now operates. “They brought national security prosecutions and convicted everybody while maintaining due process. We don’t have due process anymore here,” Patel said.
America now has a two-tier justice system that treats Trump and his followers harshly while dealing with Democrats leniently, he added.
