It’s officially the largest criminal dragnet in U.S. history. Know what it is?
It doesn’t involve drug cartels that precipitated 90,000 deaths in 2020, according to the CDC. It’s not an investigation of Antifa and BLM rioters that caused dozens of deaths, hundreds of serious injuries, billions in property damage, and illegal violent political intimidation during the Presidential election season.
It’s the pursuit of January 6 election fraud protestors. So far, more than 465 Americans have been arrested. A new “fact sheet” released by the DOJ this past Friday portrays the political targeting as a search for the “most violent” attendees. 
According to news reports, however, almost every protester charged thus far has pleaded “not guilty.” Most have said they didn’t believe they were violating the law by entering the Capitol and were merely joining hundreds of others unresisted by police.
The government response to the January 6 protest, which involved Trump supporters, has been vastly different from the treatment of leftist protesters during the election season of 2020. Antifa and BLM rioters assaulted police in much larger numbers, at the White House and elsewhere in Washington, DC, and across the country.
The Trends Journal has extensively covered how the Biden administration has used the January protests to illegally target political opponents via spying and intelligence activities, and mass arrests. (See our  2 March article, POLITICAL PRISONERS IN THE U.S.A.,” and our 9 March article, “POLITICAL SUPPRESSION GONE WRONG.”)
The DOJ’s latest moves are a sign that the abuses are likely to be a permanent feature of Trump’s presidency.
