Matt Gaetz Warns Biden Admin Will ‘Use National Security Authorities Against MAGA’

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) went on Fox News on Friday night to warn that Joe Biden’s incoming presidential administration is positioning itself to use national security tools against political opponents.

Gaetz Speaks Out

Gaetz claimed to host Sean Hannity that he and several of his House colleagues were being targeted for the positions they held on election integrity.

“[W]e should take note of the language that the left is using — chemical warfare, insurrection, domestic terrorism,” the Republican said. “That’s not by accident, Sean. There are exquisite authorities in our national laws that allow our government to do things to terrorists that we would never allow against our own people.”

“But in the incoming Biden administration, they want to use national security authorities against MAGA,” he added. “They’re targeting Mo Brooks, Paul Gosar, Andy Biggs, Louie Gohmert, Madison Cawthorn and myself because we had the nerve to actually stand up and point out the need for election integrity.”

“And we also pointed out their hypocrisy, because for all of the criticism that they have leveled against Donald Trump unfairly, they were the cheerleaders, fundraisers and apologists for the people who burned our cities, attacked our police and were on offense against the very notion of America for months this summer,” Gaetz continued.

“They don’t want to account for that,” he said. “Joe Biden doesn’t want to answer for it. Certainly, Kamala Harris doesn’t. And so, they are going to go after the president and his allies and they’re going to use national security authorities that you should never use against our fellow Americans.”

Gaetz Is One Of The Only Lawmakers Defending Trump

Gaetz was one of the few lawmakers to actually defend President Donald Trump after the Capitol riots last week.

“This morning, President Trump explicitly called for demonstrations and protests to be peaceful. He was far more — you can moan and groan — but he was far more explicit about his calls for peace than some of the BLM and left-wing rioters were this summer when we saw violence sweep across this nation,” Gaetz said on the House floor.
