The left will ALWAYS go after one of its own – especially if it helps the party win.
Here’s what I mean by that. The Obama and Biden DOJs were – and are – weaponized against political opponents, and even conservative Americans. The IRS targeting the Tea Party. The DOJ labeling concerned parents at school board meetings as “domestic terrorists.” The DOJ targeting traditional Catholics – something the ACLJ is investigating right now. The list goes on.
But their abuse of the justice system is not contained within partisan lines. The DOJ’s legal arsenal is now being used to indict New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez and his wife on bribery charges. The couple is accused of taking hundreds of thousands in cash, luxury vehicles and even gold bars in exchange for political influence with several New Jersey businessman and the foreign government of Egypt.
And yes, it’s easy to draw comparisons between the Menendez indictment… and the accusations about Joe Biden and his son Hunter. We know the corruption runs deep and two separate standards are applied. But with Menendez, the DOJ wasn’t suddenly struck by an ethically-driven lightning bolt giving them all a sense of duty, honor and justice. So, the question remains, why is the left looking to cannibalize one of its own? And why now?
One possible political motive stands out – if we look at Menendez’s history with the DOJ.
Jack Smith, yes- THAT Jack Smith, indicted Menendez in 2017 on similar corruption and bribery charges and went to trial. After the jury was deadlocked, the DOJ yanked the case in January of 2018 and Menendez went on to handily win re-election in New Jersey.
But let’s go back even further to 2015. Remember Obama’s infamous Iran Nuclear Deal? Menendez was one of four Democrat Senators to vote against it.
Now fast-forward to today, and we find a desperate Biden Administration that just needs a win. And a new deal with Iran is expected to be coming down the pike soon. Except the Democrats’ slim majority in the Senate cannot afford four detractors this time around.
If following this DOJ has taught us anything, it’s this: whenever it APPEARS to be doing its job – like prosecuting real possible corruption – it probably isn’t actually doing its job. There’s likely another politically slanted motivation behind their actions.
