Top-level officials holding career positions in the Justice Department consider themselves political enforcers for the Biden Administration, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Sunday, discussing the DOJ’s unprecedented attempts to convict former President Donald Trump of a crime – any crime.

In an interview with Constitutional Scholar Mark Levin on “Life, Liberty & Levin,” Sen. Cruz and Host Levin discussed the warrant used to raid Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home.

“That warrant was outrageous, it was so broad. And, then you move into breaking into Donald Trump’s home,” Host Levin said, discussing how leaks coming out of the FBI and DOJ reveal an attempt to convict Trump of obstruction of justice – for simply moving documents from one room to another:

“And, the latest leak from the FBI and the Justice Department is: he moved documents. He moved documents from one room to his office! I don’t believe a subpoena prevents you from doing that, by the way. And so, they think they have an obstruction case.”

Never before in the nation’s history has a president used the Justice Department to attack a former president of the opposing party, Sen. Cruz said:

“In 230 years of our nation's history, this has never happened. We've never seen the Department of Justice raid the home of a former president. It's being done by a successor of the opposing political party. It’s being done because they want to attack Donald Trump.”

"This was a fishing expedition,” Cruz said, noting that “Every former president has taken documents from his administration. Barack Obama did that. Bill Clinton did that. George W. Bush did that."

The investigations into Trump are a brutal, blatant effort by the Biden Administration to use government agencies to gain political advantage, Cruz said:

"They’ve put hard partisans in the senior career levels at those institutions, and they now view themselves as the jackbooted thugs for the DNC.

“And that's not what the Department of Justice is supposed to be. That's not what the FBI is supposed to be."
