During a heated hearing before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday, Rep. Kweisi Mfume had a meltdown in which he defended the corrupt, politicized, Deep State operatives of the FBI, DOJ and IRS as agencies that “keep this democracy in check.”
“Now, here’s what galls me. I don’t like these attacks on the Department of Justice, the FBI, the IRS, as if they are somehow anti-U.S. agencies. Those agencies keep this democracy in check… They provide the checks, and they provide the balances,” Mfume ranted, referring to Republican members of the committee criticizing the agencies over alleged interference into the Hunter Biden investigation.
“We are doing this all over again for the Hunter Biden show to someone who has pleaded guilty and has taken responsibility for not filing taxes for two years. This is ludicrous. Beam me up, Scotty. There’s no intelligent life down here. None,” he later added, melodramatically shredding the papers in front of him.
Mfume may think that a legitimate investigation into the Biden crime family is “ludicrous,” but what’s truly ludicrous is his defense of the FBI, DOJ and IRS as bastions in defense of democracy. Under the current Biden administration, as during the Obama years, those agencies were weaponized against the Left’s political enemies, including powerless, ordinary citizens. Witness, for example, the FBI’s disgusting investigation of outraged parents who peacefully confronted school boards over the classroom indoctrination of their children into gender ideology.
Were the FBI, DOJ, and IRS “keeping democracy in check” when they allowed the domestic terror organizations Black Lives Matter and Antifa to riot, assault, loot, murder, and wreak billions of dollars’ worth of property damage all across the country? Or does Mfume think democracy needs to be protected only from Trump supporters?
