Fox News host Tucker Carlson criticized the Biden administration’s use of the FBI to raid citizens who disagree with the Democrat part agenda during the latest installment of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“Earlier this month, a longtime FBI agent and SWAT team veteran called Steve Friend came forward to blow the whistle on what he has seen happen to the FBI under Joe Biden and what he said was shocking,” Carlson recounted. “According to Agent Friend, Biden’s FBI routinely uses heavily armed SWAT teams to raid the homes of American citizens who dare to criticize the administration.”
“Now, to be clear, these are people who pose no danger to anyone,’ Carlson noted. “These are people who haven’t even been accused, much less convicted of a violent crime. So, the point is not to bring justice. The point is to terrify and intimidate Joe Biden’s political opponents.”
Carlson continued, “It’s hard to believe that’s happening, but it is. Last year, to name just one example, the FBI’s counterterrorism division raided the home of a 69-year-old Red Cross volunteer called Joseph Bolanos. An anonymous snitch had claimed that Bolanos was at the Capitol on January 6, nobody did anything violent, but he was there and turns out that wasn’t even true.”
“It was a lie, but the feds moved forward and destroyed Bolanos’ life anyway,’ Carlson said. “They showed up with guns. They stole his electronic devices, and they refused to return them. The whole experience was so traumatic that Joseph Bolanos suffered two strokes.”
“Well, on September 19, the FBI suspended Agent Steve Friend for daring to reveal what was happening, these abuses,” Carlson said. “Now it’s illegal under federal law to punish whistleblowers, but the FBI did it anyway. And then four days later, with Friend out of the way, on the morning of September 23, a team of nearly 30 FBI agents bristling with automatic weapons raided the home of yet another harmless man with no criminal record.”
Carlson concluded, “They wanted to punish him and terrify his family, They wanted to punish him and terrify his family, to send the right message to anyone who would dare get in the way of the Biden agenda.”
