(WND News Center) – President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ), under Attorney General Merrick Garland, is building a reputation for strong-arming his critics, and those schemes are now generating a reaction – outrage from even those who are on the liberal side of politics.
“Law enforcement seems to be using arrest tactics on Trump supporters that are generally reserved for violence and/or fleeing suspects,” charged Alan Dershowitz, a long-time liberal and a professor emeritus at Harvard Law School. “They do not seem justified in many of these cases.”
A report from Just the News explained that multiple legal experts have confirmed that the FBI and DOJ are “violating civil liberties and using brutish tactics during politically motivated and highly publicized raids and arrests targeting critics of the Biden administration.”
Observers have noticed they are “unnecessary and designed to humiliate those arrested and intimidate others” and always target someone who supported President Donald Trump, the report said.
A recent example was the search of the home belonging to former Assistant Attorney General Jeffrey Clark, who was targeted just as U.S House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s partisan House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the Capitol was asking questions.
“The video shows federal agents forcing Clark to step outside his home in just a dress shirt and underwear, not allowing him to put on his pants first despite multiple requests to do so,” the report said.
“Any sane person should be able to see that the government has been particularly overzealous in exercising its authority in these politically-charged cases,” attorney John Irving, a former federal prosecutor, told Just the News. “A lack of good judgment damages the credibility of the Justice Department and people’s faith in our institutions.”
He also represents former Trump White House trade official Peter Navarro, who was arrested amid much staged fanfare at Reagan National Airport – on misdemeanor claims he acted in contempt of Congress.
Navarro explained that the FBI put him in handcuffs, leg irons, strip-searched him, denied him a chance to call his lawyer, and deprived him of food and water, the report said.
The DOJ claimed that’s not the case.
“Why would you put a 72-year-old man with no criminal record in leg irons in a public arrest at an airport over a misdemeanor offense, especially when he literally lives across the street from the FBI headquarters building and had been in contact with an FBI agent two days earlier to be cooperative?” wondered Irving. “This obviously is the kind of case where a defendant would be allowed to voluntarily surrender in court, rather than being the object of a public spectacle.”
UPDATE AUGUST 29, 2022 — Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg admits to Joe Rogan that the FBI was interested in supressing the Hunter Biden Laptop story!
If you are not aware of the foreign security threats implicated in the "Hunter Biden Laptop Story" — and what they might mean for America's national security and foreign geopolitical affairs — that’s by design.
You were never meant to discover the contents compromising President Joe Biden, and for good reason. The mainstream media kept you ignorant on purpose.
Washington Post roasted for acknowledging Hunter Biden scandal once called 'fake': 'Retroactive Pulitzer?'https://t.co/5mCc5w51xs— Fox News (@FoxNews) March 30, 2022
The Hunter Biden laptop was real, of course. The NYT buries its confirmation of the story in paragraph 27. https://t.co/be9cPkXsKF— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) March 17, 2022
In fact, the New York Post was censored by Twitter, Facebook, and all of Big Tech for even breaking the story that Hunter Biden’s laptop existed.
CNN, MSNBC dismissed Hunter Biden’s laptop as ‘Russian disinformation’ until liberal narrative was deflatedhttps://t.co/NwYPMEZ73u— Fox News (@FoxNews) April 6, 2022
The New York Times, Washington Post, and the entire mainstream media called any reference to the story “Russian disinformation."
THAT’S WHY AMERICA MUST INSIST THAT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA REPORT THE TRUTH ABOUT THE BIDEN FAMILY AND THE CONTENTS OF HUNTER’S LAPTOP!
SIGN: Tell the Mainstream Media that viewers demand transparency on the Bidens NOW!
Enough is enough — America refuses to be kept wondering about our compromised national security, corrupt sweetheart business deals, and pay-to-play schemes detailed in the Hunter Biden Laptop.
“Polling taken in April shows that nearly two-thirds of Americans believe that the president has been compromised by his family’s shady business dealings with China,” LifeSiteNews reported on July 1, 2022.
Even CNN has finally begun to admit that the Hunter Biden Laptop is a serious problem:
- Illegal gun purchase
- Sweetheart foreign Ukraine deals
- Political access to (then) Vice-President Joe Biden
- Federal probes and investigations
Voters MUST know for whom they are voting. Sound the alarm with our new petition! SIGN TODAY!
The First Amendments protects a Free Press to report the truth and protect the American people — but the mainstream media has betrayed its viewers, spinning pro-communist and pro-globalist narratives that are HURTING voters!
Voters MUST learn about President Joe Biden’s compromised business dealings with China, Russia, Ukraine, and so many others — all pointing to the Hunter Biden Laptop.
DEMAND THE TRUTH: WE WILL NO LONGER BE MISLED BY THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA!
Media executives must learn that their viewership will continue tanking as long as executives run cover for their far-left base.
Tell media executives that you will NO LONGER watch or trust their network until they fully reveal the contents of the Hunter Biden Laptop!
It is not enough to simply change the channel. We must leave a parting shot to mainstream media executives telling them WHY consumers are refusing to watch any longer.
SIGN NOW: DO NOT LET THE MEDIA SPIN THEIR OWN FAILURE BY DENYING US TRANSPARENCY!
This is the only way to save the future of the media and win back a trustworthy Free Press for future generations.
There is no telling what the mainstream media will continue to hide, deny, and deflect if they decide to run cover for the most powerful man in the world — the President of the United States.
*** There is no time to lose—we refuse to let important information remain hidden from the American voters any longer! ***
The Hunter Biden Laptop story is the single greatest piece of evidence indicating that America’s national security is likely compromised.
We the People deserve to know the truth!
STAND WITH THE PEOPLE: SIGN OUR PETITION ASAP!

The report explained Biden’s administration also is targeting journalists, citing the raid on the home of investigative journalist James O’Keefe, founder of Project Veritas, and his colleagues.
“In the case of O’Keefe, FBI agents handcuffed him and required him to stand in the public hallway of his apartment building dressed in his underwear, according to court documents,” the report said.
That dispute involves the diary of Biden’s 40-year-old daughter, Ashley Biden, that was left behind when she moved out of a friend’s residence.
Project Veritas investigated the diary, but did not report on it.
O’Keefe’s lawyer, Paul Calli, charged, “These raids are executed by prosecutors and agents to intimidate, humiliate, and embarrass the victim of the government’s thuggery and the victim’s family, friends, and colleagues.”
Tellingly, the government has demanded to keep its justification for the searches secret.
Sometimes, the report explained, members of leftist media, such as CNN, were found to be “conveniently staking out” the home of an FBI target who was subjected to a predawn raid.
That would be Roger Stone, former Trump adviser.
“Other prominent Trump supporters – such as former Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort, former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani – have also been the target of home raids by federal agents. Dershowitz has said some of these raids violated the U.S. Constitution and described others as political revenge, comparing the conduct of federal agents to that of security forces in authoritarian countries,” the report said.
