Spotify host Joe Rogan said that the FBI was weaponized against former President Donald Trump in a manner that would never happen to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
In an episode featuring Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon, Rogan admitted that the Democrats in power are using the FBI against Trump “In a way that they would never use it against Hillary Clinton, and they’re going after him in a way they would never go after Ghislaine Maxwell’s client list, then we need to have a real conversation.”
Though he does believe the 45th president keeping classified information at his Mar-a-Lago home is problematic.
“Because if you have it in an unsecure location, meaning unsecure in terms of the government’s protection, it’s not, it’s not locked up in archives, it’s not in a place that’s very difficult to access, you have control personally over the access to something that’s top secret,” Rogan pointed out.
“If that’s the case, then that’s a problem,” he continued. “Because that safe can be opened, people can get in there, people can get the code, they can copy it, they can send it to China.”
When Dillon questioned if the motivation for the raid was national security, or preventing Trump from running in the 2024 election, Rogan conceded that both angles were valid.
“But it doesn’t mean that there shouldn’t be a real conversation about should someone have access,” he argued. “Now, I don’t know what the files were, I have zero idea whether or not they were okay for him to have or declassified. I don’t know.”
He believes the argument for the raid would be if the documents were obtained illegally.
“[If] you decide to violate that law because you think you can, and you just keep them in your safe, I don’t know if … that’s what happened, but if that is what happened, someone needs to be held accountable for that,” Rogan explained.
“You’re not supposed to do that,” he concluded. “You’re not above the law, and you can’t decide that you’re not going to follow the law because you know better.”
