MARK LEVIN (HOST): Well, as with yesterday, today I have to start with the lawlessness in our own country. With the politicization and criminalization of the legal process, depending on who you are. And we'll get to these other subjects as well, but I need to get to this first because if I don't explain it, nobody else will. Not that they don't try, but it's just the way it is.

Here's a headline, ladies and gentlemen in USA Today. "Department of Justice seeks 131 more prosecution for January 6 cases as investigation of Capital riot continues." Part of their budget proposal unveiled on Monday, writes Kevin Johnson.

You know, ladies and gentlemen, our investigators and our prosecutors have a lot of time on their hands. Rather than investigating criminals at the federal level, rather than investigating terrorists at the federal level, rather than looking into the cartels who are bringing fentanyl into this country, killed a 110,000 people last year, many of them young people, rather than dealing with MS-13 and the and the murder rates going over in this country, record numbers, and the list goes on of what the FBI is not doing -- they continue to investigate people, for the most part, who were parading on public lands. Hence, trespassing.

For which they are forced to go in front of a federal judge who sits there in a black robe, stares down at them from the bench, and demands that unless they want serve long sentences in a federal gulag, that they confess. They confess to their political failures, to their -- the fact that they endorse Donald Trump, the fact that they had questions about this election.

We've never seen anything like this in American history. Nothing like this. And, of course, this is where the culture is. This is where the media are. This is where the Democrat Party are, the same -- the same elements in this society.

We have never seen people treated like this. Never. Well, that's not true, is it? That's not true. People in the civil rights movement were treated like this. I know people will take that out of context, doesn't much matter. And yet, this is how these people are treated.
