“This Is A Full-Blown Political Purge”: Tucker Carlson Obtains DOJ Subpoenas Targeting Trump Allies


by Chris Menahan

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.

James O’Keefe has a brilliant response to any attempt to pull such a crime by a state actor.

Here’s the thing; you don’t have to be a journalist, like James, to use all of the logic, precedent and snark that James’ law team did.
Listen to the end.

There’s no reason to be alarmed by this legal over-reach.
No reason to spend a lot on lawyers, either.

These are our rights, not to be infringed upon.
It’s all just intimidation and scare tactics.


How long before we see a Democrat version of Night of the Long Knives? We aren’t that far away from it, just rounding up anyone, especially influencers, that do not promote the Democrat party line. Simultaneously, Democrats lie about their performance, describing failures and catastrophes as great successes and progress.

A fascist socialist totalitarian police state, brought to you by Democrats.

They have nothing else on which to run and they are in panic.

The panic will result in making policy decisions that will punish the American people.

This is actually a full-blown take-down of a of criminal conspiracy that defrauded political donors.

Do you know where the $250 million Trump collected for his “election defense fund” went?

Not only was there no “massive election fraud”—there was no “election defense fund.”

While that was going on, the RNC was paying Trump’s personal legal costs.

No, in reality it is nothing but your usual fascist roundup of political opponents that we see in every cowardly totalitarian police state regime that is viscerally afraid of free speech. If this wasn’t the reality, the leaders of BLM would be in jail for using millions of whiny crybaby donations to buy mansions for personal use.

Mansions. MULTIPLE mansions.

When it’s figured out where the $250 Million went and how it got there, THEN we’ll know the reality.

I don’t think Trump is a criminal mastermind. I think he’s more of a charismatic confidence man turned ringmaster. The fact that there are other scams run by other crooks doesn’t mean Trump’s is any less dangerous.

When you figure it out? You don’t already know? Just fishing… AGAIN?

Again, BLM, being a socialist rip-off, is protected by Democrats as they steal at will. Or, the Biden Crime Family. Ignoring actual crimes while pursuing political opponents at the behest of the DNC.

I don’t think Trump is a criminal mastermind.

Me either. I think he was is a surprisingly great leader, the one this country really needs right now.

This is actually a full-blown take-down of a of criminal conspiracy that defrauded political donors.

Uh, okay Putin/Maduro/Xi. It is what it looks like. These people are who they appear to be: deep state tyrants inventing charges on political rivals.

Raising money, instead of having banks, tech, and pharma give you six billion dollars so you can turn around and make them Trillions, is normal.

Not only was there no “massive election fraud”

The Majority of Americans disagree with you, and there are growing calls to remove dictator Biden before he truly causes WWIII.

While that was going on, the RNC was paying Trump’s personal legal costs.

Haha. Wonder home much Clinton got from the DNC? Can you put a cost on bypassing democracy and simply installing HRC as the candidate over registered Democrats’ choice, Bernie sanders?

Just stop. You fools have nothing.

When they find out where the money went and how it got there, then we’ll know what’s true.

Trump spends a lot of time and money fighting to suppress testimony and evidence, for someone innocent of any serious wrongdoing.

Trump spends a lot of time and money fighting to suppress testimony and evidence, for someone innocent of any serious wrongdoing.

Uh, he’s fighting in world where he LITERALLY called for peace at J6th but the government and media are calling him guilty of things he’s LITERALLY been exonerated of.

No one would want these crooks to have more information for them to lie about.

The “election fund” hoax is just that: another hoax. It goes nowhere.

The Biden Depression, however…that’s news….bad news for us all.

But keep complaining about how Trump is properly using the legal system to combat corruption.

Voters will remember in November.


Trump spends a lot of time and money fighting to suppress testimony and evidence, for someone innocent of any serious wrongdoing.

Some newly unredacted portions of the affidavit used to secure the warrant to raid Trump’s home show that his people were fully cooperating with the FBI and their demands. Now, WHY would the FBI redact that? If the Trump team was cooperating, why launch a raid? If Trump was cooperating, why AUTHORIZE a raid?

It’s a sad state of affairs when people cannot trust their own justice department, but thanks to Democrats destroying the credibility and honor of the DOJ and FBI, that is exactly where we are.

By the way, if Hillary did nothing wrong, why did she obliterate 33,000 emails, her phones and computers and lie to Congress? If idiot Biden has done nothing wrong, why did he lie about being aware and involved in his son’s influence peddling business?

Yep, he did make that statement, calculated to allow plausible deniability. Most of his co-conspirators were lawyers.

Yep, he did make that statement,

Uh, no.

You’re 0-1047, when it comes to made up Trump charges.

This is why you idiots are trying to arrest people: you have no platform, and the Federal Government is being ignored by both governors and citizens alike.

As the FBI Raid sputters out, you’re on to the next lie.

8. “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.

I guess you don’t understand what Trump hires lawyers to do. Trump always tries to have a legal escape route. He learned his lessons from the most devious lawyers he could find.

He fired up a mob, launched them at the Capitol where the electoral count would take place, and said “Go in peace, brothers and sisters.”

He apparently wanted to go there himself but the Secret Service stopped him, knowing all hell was going to break loose.

It’s all on video. He watched it on TV. People were running around trying to get him to call the mob off, but he wouldn’t.

Now his followers won’t come out from under this spell. These are strange and dangerous days. It’s The Rule of Law vs. Donald Trump. And the RNC has taken his side, even though they SEE all of this.

I guess we just trust the January 6th kangaroo kommittee that that is actual, real recording of “Trump supporters” talking with each other? Sure, I guess… I mean, would they lie to us?


“Go peacefully and make your voices heard.” Wow, I want to grab a pitchfork and torch just reading that.

Trump gave a normal speech, clearly explaining the fraud and corruption of the idiot Biden regime. Nothing else. It was the FBI, with paid assets on the ground, that incited the violence. We clearly see WHY this was done now.

This is one 4 hour event, which the Democrats paint the entire Republican movement as violent. Meanwhile, the left conducted 9 months of violence, riots, looting, assaults, MURDERS which Democrats praised, defended, encouraged, excused and promoted. As usual, the Democrats try to make any one of their lemmings that are actually aware of that pogrom to associate it with Republicans, not themselves who actually made it possible. Kamala even promoted a bail fund (something the leftist social media cabal prohibits for conservatives) for the violent BLM/ANTIFA fascists that get arrested, so they can continue committing violence in the service of the DNC.

He apparently wanted to go there himself but the Secret Service stopped him, knowing all hell was going to break loose.

Yeah, didn’t he beat the shit out of 3 Secret Service agents and drive the Beast from the back seat right into the Capital and park it in the Rotunda? That’s what I heard… so it must be true.

You know, Harvard has put Stelter and DeBlasio on their teaching staff, so you can now take courses in lying, stupidity and willful ignorance. Maybe you should go get a degree there.

Greg, there’s no evidence, no video, nothing that shows Trump doing anything wrong. Quite the contrary.

The election was rigged. The Democrats and their deep state staged a false flag to solidify their treachery. It’s historical in how textbook it was done.

You are committing treason against the United States of America. You are trying to arrest a man who was legally elected, and is still electable.

You’re cheating.

Trump always tries to have a legal escape route.

More like he’s obeying the law and can prove it.

You’re desperate attempts at yet another hoax show me yet the usual tactic you idiots use:

11. “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.”

But for Trump and others, you invert this. It’s a POSITIVE that Trump has good lawyers and always proves himself in court.

But you call it an “escape route” not understanding you literally dismiss any “victories” you and your illegal Federal Government might have in court.

If Trump can “use the law as an escape route,” then that makes the law useless…is what you are accidentally saying.

What a f*cking idiot you are.

It’s The Rule of Law vs. Donald Trump.

Uh, the rule of Law happens in a courtroom. Trump is able to defend himself, legally.

Who’s attacking the Rule of Law, then?

You are.

This is what it looks like: a tyrannical takeover of our country by the Democrats and the deep state.
