TUCKER CARLSON (HOST):  As we told you, the Biden Justice Department is transforming before our eyes into an armed political instrument whose main job appears to be punishing critics of the Democratic Party. Here's the latest example: They have just indicted former Trump adviser Steve Bannon for contempt of Congress. Well, if that sounds like an unusual charge, it definitely is. The DOJ hasn't charged anyone with criminal contempt of Congress in nearly 40 years. 

The DOJ did not charge Eric Holder after he was held in contempt, for example. The DOJ didn't charge Jim Clapper or John Brennan when they lied to Congress. That's not speculation. They lied. They were caught. But then Joe Biden wasn't president at the time. As we said, the DOJ is now the enforcement arm of the Democratic Party, punishing anyone who doesn't comply with the demands of Nancy Pelosi and Liz Cheney's January 6th Commission.
