In Thursday’s episode of War Room, host Steve Bannon responded to US Attorney General Merrick Garland’s afternoon press conference regarding the FBI raid at former President Donald Trump, saying that Garland is "lawless scumbags."
"They’re lawless scumbags is what they are," Bannon opened up with after playing a portion of Garland’s press conference. "Is this supposed to intimidate us? His crying hunched over, about to wet himself four days after we smoked him out."
Speaking with Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, he said, "you've got these anti-Trump snide left wing partisan, partisan meaning they're Democrats, running the Justice Department, running the FBI. They hate Trump. They think the rule of law or the laws to be used as a manipulative tool against their opponents as opposed to being enforced fairly, in a way that the American people can can have confidence that there's a Fair Administration of Justice."
"There's no legal justification for this, right, in my view. It's, you know, and we're talking about the underlying documents and such, and we all know they can write whatever they want, right? But the purpose is to destroy this man and destroy people around him," Fitton continued. "That's the purpose and they will come up with reasons to effectuate that purpose until the end of time, practically speaking."
Before the next speaker began, Bannon reiterated his comments about Garland and the FBI, stating, "Merrick Garland’s five minutes of just about to wet himself on global TV, nervous of the — You know breaking, his voice breaking, about to cry. What a man. Talk about a guy that can't step in and own a decision and own a room."
On Wednesday afternoon, Garland announced that said that he "personally approved" the Monday FBI raid of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence, noting that the Justice Department "does not take such a decision lightly."
Garland also announced that "the Justice Department has filed a motion in the Southern District of Florida to unseal a search warrant and property receipt relating to a court-approved search that the FBI conducted earlier this week. That search was a premises located in Florida, belonging to the former president."
The Attorney General later added, "all Americans are entitled to the even-handed application of the law, to due process of law, and to the presumption of innocence. Much of our work is by necessity conducted out of the public eye. We do that to protect the constitutional rights of all Americans and to protect the integrity of our investigations."
Later, Bannon noted a Newsweek article claiming that the FBI acted alone, and questioned, "Why didn't Merrick Garland come out and correct at the time? Why did he allow that to go out? Those are senior Justice Department officials. Where's Newsweek magazine? Are they going to back their story up? Because DOJ is lying? The FBI is lying. All of them are lying, and we're gonna hold them all accountable and I'm not gonna sit there and listen to Merrick Garland."
"Well listen pipsqueak. You can come out there and start crying again at the mic because War Room's not going to back off. We smoked you out. Tom Fitton smoked you out. Other conservative media smoked you out of your cave and forced you to that podium today to at least give your first cut of the lies and spin. We're not going to back off. You're a lawless scumbag. How about that. Suck on that. And the FBI is a bunch of lawless Gestapo and we're gonna get to the bottom of this is nothing but lies and misrepresentations," said Bannon.
