The people's voice of reason

Tuberville is critical of what he claims has been the politicization of the Justice System

On Tuesday, U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-Alabama) joined a roundtable discussion alleging that there has been weaponization of the U.S. Department of Justice under President Joseph R. Biden (D) and Attorney General Merrick Garland against Biden's political opponents. The conversation focused on allegations that the Biden Administration is using taxpayer dollars to attack concerned parents at school board meetings, devout Catholics, and pro-life advocates. This is in addition to the allegation that Democrats' have blatantly coordinated attempts to put former President Donald J. Trump (R) in prison.

Senator Tuberville joined Sen. Eric Schmitt (R-Missouri), who led the panel, as well as Senators Mike Lee (R-UT) and Roger Marshall (R-Kansas). Other panelists who participated included former acting U.S. Attorney General Matt Whitaker, former Senior Advisor to President Trump Stephen Miller, and Heritage Foundation President Kevin Roberts.

"Since taking office, President Biden has used taxpayer dollars and resources to attack conservative parents on school boards, Catholics, and pro-life advocates," said Sen. Tuberville. "It's very obvious."

"One of Biden's first actions in office was to redirect federal law enforcement and counterterrorism resources to go after parents who voiced concern at school board meetings about the woke propaganda being taught in our schools," Tuberville continued. "As someone who has spent 40 years in education, I know how important it is that our students get a quality education. Our young people are our greatest asset, our number one commodity. The Democrats have succeeded in getting woke propaganda pushed in taxpayer funded classrooms."

"Public schools in many parts of our country have become ground zero for the Democratic Party," said Tuberville. "Parents started waking up to what they saw during COVID. [They started asking] 'What are they teaching our kids?' So, [Attorney General] Merrick Garland directed the FBI to open an investigation into these parents who spoke up. Yes, going after parents. But it doesn't stop there."

"The Biden administration also used the Supreme Court's overturning of Roe v. Wade to target pro-life Americans," stated Tuberville. "The Biden administration has had pro-life Americans arrested."

"The last time I checked, our great Constitution protects American's right to speak freely and peacefully protest in this country," said Tuberville. "No one has been more impacted by Joe Biden's weaponization of justice than President Trump. [...] [The New York v. Trump] trial was a complete joke and a massive waste of taxpayer dollars. It was a clown show. As if it wasn't obvious enough that this case was political, a former top Biden DOJ official delivered opening arguments for the prosecution. The fact that the Biden campaign staged a press conference outside the court tells you everything you need to know. Let's be clear, this case would have never made it to court if Donald Trump wasn't running for President."

Garland's DOJ has brought two cases against former President Trump: one for alleged mishandling of classified documents and the other for attempting to challenge the results of the 2020 election that put Biden in power. The DOJ also has coordinated with prosecutors in Manhattan, New York and Fulton County, Georgia to bring charges against Trump in an effort to use the courts to discredit Trump, the likely Republican nominee, ahead of the November 5 general election contest against Biden, the likely Democratic nominee.

"If we don't return to our Constitution, which guarantees every U.S. citizen equal treatment under the law and the right to a fair trial, we are no better than Venezuela or communist China," Tuberville told the panel.

Tuberville also recently wrote an op-ed on this topic for the Daily Signal.

Tommy Tuberville was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2020 after five decades as a teacher, coach, college football coach, and sports broadcaster.
