Sara A. Carter slammed the officials at the FBI and DOJ who she said weaponized the system to undermine Trump and his campaign. They appear to have ultimately gotten away with it since they haven’t been indicted despite mounting evidence that bureau and senior Obama officials were involved. Carter didn’t seem optimistic that any of those officials would be held accountable, at least not before the November election, she explained in an interview Wednesday with Fox Business host Lou Dobbs.
Recently released documents revealed that members of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team reportedly wiped at least 15 phones, which were for official use during their investigation into President Trump’s now-debunked ties to Russia. It’s a cause for concern that no one has been held accountable for this action like so many others who targeted Trump and his campaign.
“If anyone of us had obstructed justice…. would’ve wiped our phones clean or our computers when the FBI requested to see that, we would go to jail. That’s just the facts. We would go to jail,” Carter explained.
“Instead, we had to wait all these years to find out the truth of what happened on Robert Mueller’s team and the malfeasance that took place at the FBI,” she said. “And guess what, these people are writing books, they’ve got contributorships at cable news outlets and they’re not being held accountable. So, you tell me if there’s a two-tiered system of justice.”

Biden frees Venezuelan President Maduro’s drug dealing relatives in prisoner swap
President Biden freed two of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s relatives Saturday in exchange for seven jailed Americans. The two nephews of Maduro’s wife Cilia Flores, had been convicted in the United States for drug dealing and sentenced to 18 years in prison, according to the BBC.
According to the report, the swap was in exchange for five American oil executives. Those Americans were “exchanged for two of Mr Maduro’s wife’s nephews, who were serving 18-year sentences in the US on drug charges,” the officials told the BBC. Maduro’s nephews were convicted under the Trump administration and the Venezuelan government claims that they were “unjustly” jailed in the United States.
In a statement from the White House Saturday, Biden said the American’s were “wrongfully detained.” He said the American’s would soon be reunited with their relatives, according to reports.
“Today, we celebrate that seven families will be whole once more. To all the families who are still suffering and separated from their loved ones who are wrongfully detained – know that we remain dedicated to securing their release,” the Biden statement added.
Meanwhile, 13 Republican members of Congress sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, requesting more information on “the intelligence report” that alleges Maduro is emptying his prisons and allowing them to head to the United States in the caravans that crossing the porous border.
The letter states that the report warns Border Patrol agents to be on the look-out for “violent criminals from Venezuela among the migrant caravans heading towards the U.S.-Mexico border.”
“It has been widely reported that the Venezuelan regime, under the control of Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately releasing violent prisoners early, including inmates convicted of ‘murder, rape, and extortion,’ and pushing them to join caravans heading to the United States,” the letter states.
