Paul Manafort to Newsmax: Dems Weaponizing FBI, DOJ to 'Destroy' Trump

(Newsmax/''Eric Bolling The Balance'')

By    |   Friday, 12 August 2022 09:51 PM EDT

Paul Manafort, Donald Trump's campaign manager for his 2016 presidential run, didn't sugarcoat his reaction to the FBI's search of Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort on Newsmax.

"It's the destruction of our country, in a democracy, of our Constitution," he said on Friday's "Eric Bolling The Balance." The Biden administration "has shown that it'll go to any level to destroy a political opponent."

Manafort, who is promoting his autobiographical book "Political Prisoner," said the Biden White House has made a practice of targeting political opponents before identifying any crimes; and that pervasive attitude has morphed over to other levels of government.

"That's the deep state at work," said Manafort, explaining how the House of Representatives, Senate and White House — all currently controlled by Democrats — first "weaponize" the various agencies, then encourage the groups to "go in search of a crime."

This form of political intimidation has "been going on certainly since the Obama years. The Justice Department has shown that it's [willing] to put its political survival first,"  Manafort said.

He reiterated his point by recalling that as attorney general, Eric Holder once stated his primary goal of being then-President Barack Obama's "wingman" in legal matters.

Manafort also referenced former U.S. Attorney Kevin Clinesmith, asserting that Clinesmith's "lying" on a FISA application eventually led to the FBI "spying" on then-candidate Trump at his Manhattan home in Trump Tower. 

Democrats ''created a fake hoax" on Russia collusion, too, "and we've got to see the same thing here," said Manafort with a speculative tone, before again condemning the FBI's conduct with the search of Trump's Mar-a-Lago home..

"We know [Democrats] are trying to destroy Donald Trump's" political aspirations, Manafort said. "They're fearful that Trump's going to run for president" and win again.
