Letter: Weaponizing justice

Here are the reasons the Justice Department has been weaponized by President Joe Biden:

• Biden’s Department of Justice has indicted Democratic Congressman Harry Cuellar for allegedly taking $600,000 in bribes.

• Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez is currently on trial for corruption after being indicted by Biden’s DOJ.

• Biden’s son is currently on trial after being charged by Biden’s DOJ.

Does this spell the “weaponization” of our JusticeDepartment? Do facts even matter to the Republican Party? Certainly not to Gov.

Mike Dunleavy, Sen. Dan Sullivan and U.S. House candidate Nick Begich III.

Trump was convicted on 34 felony counts by a jury of his peers in a state court, not a federal one. Biden’s DOJ had nothing to do with his trial and subsequent conviction. Can you imagine the outrage if this had happened to Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden? Fox News would blow a gasket.

Fascism is defined as a far-right, authoritarian, ultranationalist ideology and political movement, characterized by a dictatorial leader, forcible suppression of opposition and so forth. Trump is very open about his intentions to go after his political opponents if reelected. He fully intends to “weaponize” the Department of Justice.

Amazingly, a convicted felon can serve as president while incarcerated, but cannot enter 37 countries, including the U.K., Canada, Israel, Japan, Mexico and more. At least he would be able to see his dictatorial idols in Russia, China and North Korea.

The only way Trump will be reelected is if citizens do not exercise their right to vote.

Please carefully consider your choice in November, especially if you do not want our country to become a dictatorship.
