DAVIS HANSON: “The second message is, I hesitate to say this, Tucker, but I don't think we’re a society that's ruled by law. We’re in a revolutionary period right now, something like 18th century France or 1920s Russia, where the law is fluid and it’s whatever the power to be says it is. So, if you’re — just to take some examples, if you’re James O’Keefe or you’re Peter Navarro or you're Roger Stone, you’re going to have an FBI come down on you like you don’t know what. But if you refuse a subpoena like Eric Holder did, or if you lie to a federal investigator like Andrew McCabe did, or you lie under oath to the U.S. Congress like both James Brennan and John Clapper, there’s no consequences, very little. And so, the law is designed on the premise that the noble ends justifies any means necessary, and the left has defined those means as radical equality, fairness, social justice, not the constitutional law. And so, I think right now people are really weird, bizarre. They see May 31, 2020, a mob from Lafayette Square tries to torch down a historic church, tries to swarm on federal property, the White House grounds, sends a president into a bunker with his family, and there’s very little consequence, as compared to January 6th. And so I think the law is very fluid. Merrick Garland is much to blame, so is Joe Biden, but it’s part of the left ideology that's in ascendance right now and it’s very scary because I think most Americans realize, if you are of a particular political persuasion and you break the law or you’re accused of breaking the law, you’re going to be treated very differently than others."
