The Justice Department is being used the same way the House committee is – as a political retribution tool. This is a Purge, in the tradition of historic purges, of anyone who was with Trump. And frankly it has only just begun.
Steve Bannon’s unconstitutional conviction is bad enough on its own merits, but when Tulsi Gabbard lays out the names of the Democrats who get away with the actual act of lying under oath and being caught – not merely asserting privilege as Bannon did – it is so obvious and plain that Ted Cruz could only cheer her.
(I embedded Gabbard’s tweet below Cruz’s so the video will play in the post instead of opening Twitter in a new tab.)

Steve Bannon has been charged with contempt of Congress & found guilty, while Brennan, Clapper & others who lied to Congress have never been charged or prosecuted. This just shows yet again how the DOJ has been weaponized by those in power to go after their political opponents. pic.twitter.com/aJXJGUqOTb

So simple. So obvious. So true.
Y’all know I’ve said this a million times. They do it right in the open, right in our faces, right in front of the cameras. They know they can get away with it because the propaganda machine we laughably call a press are working for them whole cloth.
