Remember when the Republican Party claimed to be the party of “law and order?” It wasn’t all that long ago, but ever since failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump began attacking any law enforcement agent that dared to investigate him, the GOP has become the party of lawlessness.
He referred to mysterious “sexual improprieties” and “sexual harassment” at the bureau that he claimed he had learned about from mysterious — and unnamed — “whistleblower” complaints numbering in the “double digits.”
Did Gohmert offer any evidence of his accusation? Of course not! He was too busy lying and trying to denigrate the agency that just so happens to have served the search warrant at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in August.
Even more bizarre is the fact that Gohmert made his attack on the FBI during a debate on big tech:
Gohmert oddly attacked the FBI as he raged against anti-trust measures aimed at tech giants. The FBI and the Department of Justice, who would enforce the measures, “are the last people that we need to trust with reining in Big Tech,” he declared, without providing any further details.
And this isn’t the first time Gohmert has gone after the premier law enforcement agency in the nation.
Just last month, the Texas Republican suggested the agency was using “Gestapo” tactics.
