Rubio Hammers Biden Over Political Prosecutions: He ‘Targets Political Opponents’, Trump Didn’t

Last Updated 1 week by Amnon J. Jobi | Amnon Front Page

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) slammed President Joe Biden over the weekend for using the Department of Justice to target his political opponents and noted that former President Donald Trump did not do that while he was in office.

Rubio made the remarks during a Sunday CNN interview on “State of the Union” with Dana Bash while discussing the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent ruling that presidents have immunity for official acts that they take as president as long as the acts fall within the outer limits of duties of the president.

“I’m uncomfortable with the fact now that we have a president who has targets political opponents,” Rubio said. “That’s what’s happened under Joe Biden. When Donald Trump was president, I can’t think of a single prominent Democrat who was chased around, persecuted, prosecuted. It’s funny to me to read these people and hear these people out there warning about all the horrible things they ridiculously claim Donald Trump is going to do if he becomes president again.”

“They’re the ones that have been going after their political opponents,” he continued. “Donald Trump has been the one that’s been very clear that his vengeance is going to be by winning and making America great again, not going after his political opponents. He said that in your debate that you hosted.”

The left-wing host pushed back on Rubio and claimed that there was no evidence that Biden is targeting Republicans, even though his DOJ has two cases against the former president and one of his top officials joined the controversial case against Trump in Manhattan.

“It is clear that we have reached an era where there are people in American politics who believe that our courts are now a weapon that can be used against their political opponents,” Rubio said. “You look at what their efforts and what they have done in the courts to persecute and prosecute Donald Trump, they have tried to bankrupt him, they have tried to silence him, they have tried to jail him, they have gone after his allies every single day.”
