Elizabeth Warren targets a prominent GOP donor to pro-Israel causes
Liz Sheld at American Greatness noticed a tweet from 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), where she takes credit for urging the Justice Department to open an investigation into a prominent Republican donor on the Trump Inauguration Committee.
I called for an investigation into Elliott Broidy’s actions surrounding president Trump’s inauguration last year. Now a real investigation is happening. This is exactly why I’m fighting to end corruption in Washington. https://t.co/x7I43PuwQo

Regardless of the merits of the case, it’s unseemly—and un-American—for Democrat politicians to use their Deep State friends in the US Attorney’s office to target their political opposition.
“Warren is now making a campaign issue of an investigation that she demanded of a political opponent who has yet to be charged with a crime, much less convicted,” RedState’s Streiff wrote about Warren’s tweet.
The Democrats’ aggressive targeting of Trump donors is an effort to frighten large contributors from funding the president’s 2020 campaign, non-profits or SuperPACS. They hope to use the threat of federal prosecution to starve their political opposition of money.
Of course, the double-standard is stark.
Sheld asks, “All of the sudden, offering inauguration tickets to people you know or work with merits a federal investigation? Whatever happened to the Clinton donors who spent the night in the Lincoln bedroom by the way? Or the foreign governments who donated to the Clinton Global Initiative when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State?”
