Representative Paul Gosar: Obama Weaponized Federal Government

January 23, 2018 - San Francisco, CA - Yesterday, Congressman Paul Gosar [R-AZ, 4th] sat down with Breitbart News’s Senior Editors-at-Large Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak [Sirius XM broadcast] in a wide ranging, and for some, shocking discussion of the Obama administration’s blatant and illegal weaponizing of the federal government against its “enemies.”

In this first cut, Gosar explains that Fast and Furious, the Benghazi cover-up, the IRS persecution of conservative organizations and the unmasking of Trump officials must be seen as a whole, an entirely illegal and unprecedented use of the national government to shut down the president’s critics.

“Well, this memo is a summary of emails and traffic that has been picked up by the intelligence and judiciary systems. Some of it is exactly what you may have seen that has been exposed to the sunlight already. Other things may not. But what it basically does is, that, if you don’t think that Fast and Furious, if you don’t think that Benghazi, for the lack of accountability, if you don’t think the IRS, and if you don’t think the unmasking has something to do with the weaponization of our Department of Justice and our intelligence services, think again.”

As to the question of whether or not Congress should release the already infamous, “Four Page Memorandum” that has been characterized as containing information about Obama administration programs that will “shock the conscience of this country, Gosar insisted that it was only a question of how soon, not if, the committee released the document.”

“In our conference, there is a heated debate about when, not if, and we want it out sooner than later. The American people need to see this. There are other things associated with it because this is just the tip of the iceberg. It names names, and those names…they should be owed their day in court…[and if that is] what’s presented, there are some heads that need to go to jail and not come out for quite some time.”

Expanding on what is turning out to be a well coordinated effort by Team Obama to use the full power of the Federal government in a wide ranging conspiracy to avoid the look of complicity in the Obama administration’s numerous scandals as well as what is probably the biggest political scandal in United States history, sabotaging first the Trump campaign, and later the Trump presidency:

“If you look at Fast and Furious, Joel, this was about one of the most precious and most instrumental aspects of individuals to hold a government accountable: having the Second Amendment. If you can take that, if you can lack the accountability that popped up with Benghazi, where you didn’t protect American citizens and those in harm’s way, if you can target your opposition with the IRS and then you can unmask them with anybody and then spread that information - not just unmask them, but spread that information to all other agencies and top brass – now, what you’ve got is the beginnings of a Banana Republic. That means that you have an autocratic demise to the democracy and to the republic and hold your political foes to their detriment.”
