Conservatives have been vociferous about the difference in treatment of Republicans during a Democrat administration since the 2020 elections. The FBI and the media have handled recent papers discovered in the custody of former President Trump and current President Biden in vastly different ways. This disparity in how the current Democratic government and liberal media handle Republicans vs Democrats was the subject of a recent Fox News “The Five” episode.
Jesse Watters of Fox News is furious because it appears like no matter what individuals do against conservatives, there is little retribution. Watters went off on the lack of Democrat bureaucrats and officeholders jailed in a recent episode of “The Five” on Thursday. The show’s panel discussed the first hearing of the House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, which Republicans are using to demonstrate that the government has been targeting conservatives.
The host discussed Republican Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley’s assertion that he received FBI “whistleblower disclosures” claiming to have “voluminous evidence with the respect to potentially criminal conduct” by President Joe Biden’s son Hunter and brother James. According to the senator, the material he has demonstrated that President Biden was aware of his son’s financial operations and “may have been involved in some of them.”
“And no one’s even talking about it!” the host said. “You wanna know why? Because everybody already knows that! Everybody already knows all of this stuff! So, what is the endgame here? We get screwed, then we have a hearing,” he said. “Nothing happens. We get screwed again. We have a hearing. Nothing happens.”
The ramifications of the material discovered on Hunter Biden’s laptop have yet to be fully examined and addressed legally, hence no charges have been filed against members of the Biden family. Others, though, are asking for action.
For example, a Louisiana Republican member of the House recently warned that former Twitter executives may be arrested at a contentious session on Wednesday.
“You, ladies and gentlemen, interfered in the United States of America 2020 presidential election,” admonished Rep. Clay Higgins in a viral video clip posted to social media. “Knowingly and willingly. That’s the bad news, it’s gonna get worse. Because this is the investigation part. Later comes the arrest part.”
He added: “Your attorneys are familiar with that. Mr. Chairman, I’d like to spend five hours with these ladies and gentlemen doing depositions that are surely yet to come, but for right now, I yield the balance of my time.”

Watters then discussed FBI Director Christopher Wray, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump after he dismissed previous FBI Director James Comey, and how, if elected in 2024, Trump would have a difficult time replacing Wray. This sparked a heated discussion amongst the panelists, which irritated Watters.
Conservative Brief noted the exchange:
“Trump gets elected,” the host said. “What’s he gonna, go in there and fire Chris Wray? Last time anybody did that, he got impeached for it, and he got a special counsel down his throat.” The implication was that impeachment against Trump was for firing Comey, which was not the reason formally indicated in the impeachments.
“So, we have an FBI dictatorship here. You either fire him and die or you can’t touch him and you still die,” the host said. “I’m sick of these hearings,” he said. “Make me feel better, guys. Tell me this is going somewhere. Can I throw someone in prison? Can someone go to jail, Can someone get fined?”
His co-host Jeanine Pirro said that she believed that there is not “an objective Department of Justice.”
“We don’t have it!” Watters shouted. “They’re under investigation, we don’t have an objective anything anymore!”
“Just very quickly,” his Democrat co-host Jessica Tarlov said. “You guys got the Durham investigation, which was supposed to blow the lid off–”
“Exactly!” Watters interrupted.
“–and it ended up with nothing because there is nothing,” Tarlov said.
Watters vehemently objected to the erroneousness of the comments.
“Stop!” Watters said. “You guys admitted you planted the [Steele] dossier!”
“What?!” Tarlov said.
“You admitted you framed him as a traitor and you want to investigate our investigation? We’re investigating the investigators!” he said.
“We don’t live in the same world. It’s just crazy,” the liberal co-host said.
“Exactly, your world’s fake,” Watters insisted.
“My world is winning,” Tarlov said.
“We’re following the facts!” Watters said.
“We are winning,” Tarlov needled.
“You guys are corrupt. You robbed my vote!” Watters said before co-host Greg Gutfeld said “This is the best” and Tarlov shouted “You voted in New York!”
“What are you talking about?! Go to break! Judge, tell ’em to go to break!” a frustrated Watters said to end the segment.
The exchange between the co-hosts echoes discussions across America as the public unravels truth form fiction.
