Huckabee unloads after Navarro arrest: ‘Democrat mafia,’ the media are the ‘REAL insurrectionists’

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee spoke out after the heavy-handed arrest of former Trump adviser Peter Navarro who was put into handcuffs and leg shackles at a Washington D.C.-area airport after he defied a subpoena from Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s sham “insurrection” committee.

Navarro, who was indicted for contempt of Congress, was on his way to Nashville, Tennessee for an appearance on a television show hosted by Huckabee when he was accosted by FBI agents. His arrest being the latest example of how the once-venerable bureau seems to have morphed into the Democrats’ own political Gestapo being unleashed against the party’s political adversaries.

The former trade policy adviser who was one of the biggest hawks on China during his time working for Trump was taken into custody by the state security forces on the day after he vowed to help Republicans impeach Biden. “Who are these people? This is not America,” he said. “I was a distinguished public servant for four years.”

Huckabee took to Twitter to blast the FBI and the “Democrat mafia,” who he called out as “the REAL insurrectionists” in his scathing remarks, following the humiliating treatment of Dr. Navarro.

“The outrageous treatment of Peter Navarro is another example of a federal police agency gone mad. Navarro was actually boarding a plane in DC to come to Nashville to be the primary guest on my show this weekend when he was handcuffed and whisked to a DC jail, put in leg shackles,” he wrote.

“and held until his appearance before a magistrate. He had spoken to the FBI Wednesday and told them if they were going to charge him to call him and he would turn himself in. Navarro literally lives in an apartment NEXT DOOR TO THE FBI!”

“But they had to “make a spectacle” and publicly humiliate a 72 year old man who has faithfully served his country. And the “TRUMPED up” charge (emphasis mine) was because he genuinely believes (as I do!)” Huckabee continued, “that Nancy Pelosi’s sham committee failed to meet its own rules for how it was to be constituted but most importantly involves the very serious Constitutional issue of separation of powers in which a partisan, hate-filled gang of House Democrats…”

“are demanding that the Executive Branch give over internal documents, notes and other confidential papers from the White House, which is an issue of grave violation of Executive privilege and should be settled by the Supreme Court,” he wrote.

“This entire episode is another example of the powers of Washington, the Democrat mafia, and the media have colluded to not only destroy a man’s reputation and life, but have been active partners in shredding the Constitution. These are the REAL insurrectionists!” Huckabee concluded.

Navarro spoke to reporters about his indictment for the rejection of the committee’s subpoenas, correctly pointing out that the Democrat-controlled government is acting in an authoritarian manner and that Congress has “weaponized” its investigatory powers in an unconstitutional way.

Navarro’s arrest comes before the spectacle of the J6 committee’s nationally televised Soviet-style show trials which will be given the prime time treatment this week for its grand premiere.
