Despite the inflamed rhetoric of pro-Trump Republicans, the seizure of a sitting congressman's phone is not unheard of. These GOP members appear to believe that government officials are somehow above the law. This is a broader continuation of Trump's legal woes in synch with the shocking findings of the Jan 6. committee.
This seizure highlights the "hot war" that is currently raging between the left-leaning establishment and conservatives who threaten to expose them. The FBI and DOJ are targeting the American people who threaten the status quo, and Perry's phone seizure is just another example of Biden's government trying to crush dissent.
There's a 17% chance that Donald Trump will be jailed or incarcerated before 2030, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
