Lawmaker Calls To Action: “Sever All Ties With DOJ Immediately”
(TargetLiberty.org) – Republicans are traditionally the party of law and order. Despite that, there’s a growing rift between the GOP and federal law enforcement. Now, a state legislator wants something done about it, and he has a very radical idea.
It’s time for us in the Florida Legislature to call an emergency legislative session & amend our laws regarding federal agencies
Sever all ties with DOJ immediately
Any FBI agent conducting law enforcement functions outside the purview of our State should be arrested upon sight
— Rep. Anthony Sabatini (@AnthonySabatini) August 9, 2022
On August 8, the FBI raided former President Donald Trump’s home at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, FL. The agency claimed the raid was part of an investigation into classified documents Trump had allegedly removed from the White House; claims the former president strongly denies. However, many Republicans believe it’s just another example of the Biden Administration harassing the former POTUS.
Immediately after the raid, Florida State Representative Anthony Sabatini (R), who is also a US congressional candidate, released a statement calling for Florida to cut its ties with the Department of Justice. He said any FBI agent operating in Florida “outside the purview of our State” should be immediately arrested.
Many Conservatives feel federal law enforcement has become politicized in the last decade, and it’s easy to understand why. The FBI’s involvement in Democrat plots to impeach President Trump, its failure to do anything about Hillary Clinton’s email server, and the way Hunter Biden seems to get away with everything are turning Republicans against the DOJ and the FBI. Sabatini’s radical demand is a vivid sign of that conduct.
