MERCEDES SCHLAPP (HOST): Yeah, I mean, Peter, when you look at the fact that these Democrats they have been waging this political warfare on MAGA conservatives right now. And we say this all the time – it wasn't just going to be Donald Trump. It was going to be anyone who worked for Donald Trump. It was going to be anyone who supported Donald Trump. This was not going to stop. Then they used the FBI and the Department of Justice to weaponize and go after us conservatives. I mean, up to what point is this going to continue to be allowed? How will this be stopped?

PETER NAVARRO (GUEST): Well, first of all, I want to thank Newsmax and Chris Ruddy, personally, for helping me raise the money I'm needing for my legal defense fund. That's what they do, Mercy, this lawfare where even if they can't find you guilty, they bankrupt you. And I'm already out in cost close to half a million dollars for a misdemeanor. And this is what they do. The only way we put a stop to this, Mercy, is through the ballot box. Pelosi and her witch hunt and her weaponization of Congress' investigatory powers, unconstitutionally, has to go. Come January, if we have a Republican leadership and they finally have the stones to do what needs to be done, the subpoenas will fly. We'll figure out just who made the decision to go down to Mar-a-Lago when that wasn't necessary. And the Democrats, the FBI are out of control. They're showing brutality, brutality and authoritarianism in a country where we were supposed to have the bill of rights, peace, and democracy. We don't have that now. That's all on the Biden-Pelosi Democrats right now.
