Tuberville: Biden has ‘intentionally weaponized the judicial system to target Republicans’

U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) criticized the Biden administration Monday for using America’s justice system to go after their Republican opponents.

In an op-ed for The Daily Signal, the senator said the recent conviction against former President Donald Trump is just one of many examples of Democrats using lawfare against conservatives.

“President Joe Biden and his administration have intentionally weaponized the judicial system to target Republicans while protecting Democrats,” Tuberville said. “Since taking office, Biden has used taxpayer resources to attack conservative parents on school boards, Catholics, and pro-life advocates. And that’s in addition to the blatant attempt to jail Biden’s top political opponent during an election year.”

Tuberville’s criticism comes after a Tennessee judge went against the Biden administration’s wishes last week and said a pro-life activist Paul Vaughn will not serve time in prison for trying to stop abortions from taking place at an abortion clinic.

“The sham New York v. Trump case is perhaps one of the most egregious examples of the Left’s weaponization of justice,” Tuberville continued. “Whether you consider the lopsided jury, the gag order issued to silence only former President Donald Trump, the prosecution’s failure to describe the underlying criminal allegations, or the lack of a unanimous verdict required for conviction, this ‘trial’ was a complete joke and a massive waste of taxpayer dollars.”

Tuberville said there’s an obvious double standard in cases brought Biden’s Justice Department.

“[T]he Biden administration has stood by while terrorist-sympathizing activists have taken over college campuses across the country in the wake of the Oct. 7 terrorist attack in Israel, he said. “Columbia and other universities were overrun by violent protesters who harassed Jewish students, trespassed on private property, and prevented students from getting to class. What did Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg do in response? His office announced they were dropping all charges against the 30 students and staff arrested for breaking the law.”

The senator concluded that he will continue to oppose the Biden administration agenda until the weaponization against conservatives is stopped.

“Enough is enough,” he said. “I refuse to stand by while Biden and his allies try to destroy our country as we know it. That’s why I signed a pledge with several of my Republican colleagues stating that we will not allow fast-tracking of Biden’s judicial and U.S. attorney nominees through Election Day. We will not be complicit in the White House’s mission to pack our courts with activist judges who only follow the law when it benefits Democrats. I will continue to oppose the Biden administration until American voters have the opportunity to reject Biden’s attempts to impose his political agenda through the justice system.”

Tuberville signed a pledge earlier this year that said “The White House has made a mockery of the rule of law and fundamentally altered our politics in un-American ways. As a Senate Republican conference, we are unwilling to aid and abet this White House in its project to tear this country apart.”
