More J6 Stasi Raids Target Trump Allies

'They haven't charged you with a crime, but they treat you like a drug kingpin or a rapist and seize your phone... '

(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) Nancy Pelosi’s handpicked J6 Inquisition has continued its Stasi-like lawfare persecution of the allies of President Donald Trump with the seizure of the phone of Trump attorney John Eastman.

Eastman’s phone was snatched by federal agents as he and his wife left a New Mexico restaurant on the evening of June 22.

The venerable lawyer, who committed the cardinal sin of advising Trump on his options in the aftermath of the dubious 2020 election, was then forced to provide biometric data to unlock his phone, according to a suit Eastman has filed in federal court.

In his suit, Eastman claims that the FBI illegally seized his phone on behalf of the Department of Justice’s Office of the Inspector General, which “outstripped it mandate by targeting a person outside of the Department of Justice.”

Furthermore, he argues that his Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights were violated when he was compelled to unlock his phone, thereby “testifying” against himself and giving the feds access to privileged attorney-client communications.

The Claremont Institute excoriated the federal government for its Soviet tactics.

The thread highlighted Eastman’s appearance on Tucker Carlson‘s show on Fox News, in which the lawyer said that the warrant was facially invalid in part because it contained “no information about any crime this is connected to.”

“This is what we used to call a general warrant that the British king issued to just go rummage through someone’s belongings to see if they could find evidence of some crime,” Eastman said. “It’s the very reason we have the Fourth Amendment.”

Carlson pointed out that the purpose of these tactics is to “punish political opponents of the Biden administration.”

“They haven’t charged you with a crime . . . but they treat you like a drug kingpin or a rapist and seize your phone,” Carlson said.

Perhaps Eastman should have taken note of the habit that special counsel Robert Mueller’s anti-Trump team had of “accidentally” wiping their data before the inspector general could access their phones.
