Biden’s Department of Justice in coordination with liberal District Attorneys across the country has carried out political prosecutions not seen since the J. Edgar Hoover era of the FBI.
Nearly a thousand people have been criminally charged in relation to the January 6th ‘Stop the Steal’ rally, with many defendants reporting that their due process rights have been violated and that they have been subjected to cruel treatment in federal prisons.
High-profile Trump officials have been criminally charged on legally shaky grounds, including former Trump advisor Steve Bannon who was convicted of Contempt of Congress and could face jail time pending appeal.
Biden’s new frontier in criminally prosecuting his political opponents has been using an obscure law that was rarely used in previous administrations; the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances, or FACE Act.
The law prohibits people from obstructing access to abortion clinics.
A former Department of Justice official in the Civil Rights Division recently said that Biden’s use of the law is abusive and a ‘weaponization’ of law enforcement.

The Biden administration is “weaponizing” the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act to go after pro-life activists, an attorney who served under George W. Bush and Barack Obama told the Daily Caller.
“The left is out for blood, and Biden’s base is demanding prosecutions and the DOJ is providing them,” said Roger Severino, who served as an attorney at the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights division, the same division that enforces the FACE Act.
The Biden administration has charged at least 16 pro-life activists with a maximum of 11 years in prison for alleged violations of the act, which prohibits obstructing people seeking reproduction services. Pro-life activist Mark Houck allegedly pushed an abortion escort to the ground after a verbal confrontation. FBI agents swarmed Houck’s house and took him away at gunpoint months after the initial charges against him were dropped.
The DOJ charged the other 15 pro-lifers with allegedly obstructing entrances of abortion clinics and they face a maximum of 11 years in prison
