GOP Lawmakers Issue Dire Warning to Biden after Trump’s J6 Arrest

'Biden's DOJ treats anyone who disagrees with it as domestic terrorists...'

(Luis CornelioHeadline USA) GOP lawmakers have issued a dire warning to President Joe Biden after former President Donald Trump’s arrest following an indictment from the Justice Department related to the 2020 election.

The arrest has ignited a fiery debate on the political stage, with Republicans accusing the Biden administration of engaging in alleged blatant election interference against Biden’s leading opponent.

Prominent GOP figures, including Sens. Marsha Blackburn, Tenn., Josh Hawley, Mo., Thom Tillis, N.C., Tom Cotton, Ark., and Reps. Chip Roy, Texas, and Marjorie Taylor Greene, Ga., have raised serious concerns about the timing and motives behind the DOJ’s actions. 

Blackburn questioned the coincidental timing of Trump’s indictment immediately following revelations about Biden’s alleged corruption, implying it was an attempt to divert attention from Biden’s issues

Specifically, she stated, “Multiple times, Biden’s DOJ has indicted Trump the day after major revelations about Biden’s corruption. Is this part of the Biden coverup?”

Hawley went further, accusing the DOJ of treating dissenters as domestic terrorists and highlighting what he called an unprecedented attack on American democracy.

“Biden’s DOJ treats anyone who disagrees with it as domestic terrorists: from Trump voters, to parents at school board meetings, to Catholic pro-life demonstrators. It’s unprecedented in American history,” Hawley blasted.

Sen. Cotton echoed Hawley’s remarks, saying, “Let’s call it like it is: the latest Trump indictment seems like something you’d get from an MSNBC producer.”

Trump, who is now facing two federal indictments and a New York case, slammed the Biden-led DOJ during a impromptu press conference at a D.C. airport.

“This is a very sad day for America,” he said. “It was also very sad driving through Washington, D.C., and seeing the filth and decay and all of the broken buildings and walls of graffiti. This is not the place that I left.”

Even Sen. Tillis, a Trump antagonist, chimed in and called for a congressional investigation, warning that Trump is presumed innocent until proven guilty. “Given the public’s declining confidence in the impartiality of the DOJ and concerns over the perception of a two-tiered justice system, Congress must conduct robust oversight of the investigation and the ultimate decision to prosecute President Trump,” Tillis said.

On the House side, Republicans were equally forceful in their criticism. “President Trump is right to fight this political prosecution – the rule of law depends on it,” Roy tweeted.

Greene joined the criticism of the Biden-led DOJ accusing the “Deep State” of hunting Trump. “President Trump is being arrested, the Deep State is coming after him, all because he committed the ‘crime’ of winning the 2016 election,” Green said. “Joe Biden and his DOJ are conducting the most corrupt election interference campaign we’ve ever seen.”

On the other hand, Democrats have rejoiced the new charges arguing that Trump presents a threat to democracy and that his actions related to the 2020 presidential election deserve the charges, but critics warn their joy could be short-lived.

In a Wednesday interview with Fox News, legal scholar Alan Dershowitz warned on Wednesday that the Supreme Court would overturn any convictions if Trump were to be found guilty of the charges stemming from the DOJ charges. 

“I think you will probably win the United States Supreme Court.” He emphasized his confidence in Trump’s legal position and suggested that the case might not survive appellate review.
