Fox News turned to Steve Bannon for their coverage of the FBI raiding Trump, and Bannon blamed Joe Biden and called for defunding the FBI.

I gave the keynote address at CPAC on Friday night. I said we’re at a political and ideological war. They’ve weaponized the Justice Department — this had to be approved, going up to the White House to be approved. Absolutely. Anybody saying it didn’t is a liar. This had to go through Merrick Garland at least and Wray and these guys. Who, here’s the thing. This is about pure power politics.
They’re scared to death about Trump, the guy that laid out the effort to try to steal the 2020 election. He’s tweeting right now all the U.S. Code about documents to make sure you can’t run for federal office again. They’re terrified that he’ll announce in a couple weeks to win the Republican nomination and win the White House. We need a full investigation, cutting off appropriations to the FBI to get to the bottom of this. Okay? This is going to continue on.
The FBI right now is the Gestapo. The FBI is the Gestapo, whether it’s out in Colorado, putting a gold star mother in chains, Peter Navarro in chains. .It’s insane.
We need to choke down the FBI and choke down the Justice Department and get to the bottom of who approved this. This is so outrageous it needs to to be investigated.
Bannon will be going to jail soon for contempt of Congress, but his theory about the left being afraid of Trump running for president again makes no sense.
Democrats want Trump to run for president again. It is Republicans who are begging Trump not to announce his campaign before the midterms because they think it will hurt their chances of winning back Congress.
There is nothing political about this. Donald Trump stole classified documents. Bannon calling for Jim Jordan to pledge to investigate the FBI shows how deeply the ring of criminality goes within the Republican Party, and yes, that is Fox News and Steve Bannon calling for law enforcement to be defunded.
Fox News and Steve Bannon are having a meltdown over Trump being raided by the FBI.
