Twitter boss Elon Musk sent a warning to Democrat President Joe Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland after the Department of Justice indicted President Donald Trump on 7 counts in Florida.
Musk warned the Biden administration that weaponizing the federal government against Trump will cost them “public trust.”
He noted that the voting public can see that the weaponized justice system is being used to target enemies of the Democrats.
Musk said: “There does seem to be far higher interest in pursuing Trump compared to other people in politics.
“Very important that the justice system rebut what appears to be differential enforcement or they will lose public trust.”

Trump also fired back at the Biden admin over the “Boxes Hoax,” saying:
“The corrupt Biden Administration has informed my attorneys that I have been Indicted, seemingly over the Boxes Hoax, even though Joe Biden has 1850 Boxes at the University of Delaware…
“With even more Boxes at the University of Pennsylvania, and documents strewn all over his garage floor where he parks his Corvette, and which is ‘secured’ by only a garage door that is paper thin, and open much of the time.”
Prominent critics have been taking to social media to express their shock at the move by the Biden admin.
Matt Walsh said: “Biden has indicted his top political rival for doing something that he has himself also done.
“Full on banana republic stuff.
“An absolute disgrace.”
Liberal reporter Matt Taibbi agreed, saying:
“I think if you are a person who grew up in a third-world country you would recognize this.”

According to CNBC, Trump’s lawyers just quit:
Two lawyers who represented Donald Trump in the months before the former president was indicted on federal charges over his handling of classified documents quit working for him Friday morning.
The attorneys, Jim Trusty and John Rowley, did not explain in detail why they had resigned, other than to say that “this is a logical moment” to do so given his indictment Thursday in U.S. District Court in Miami.
Trusty and Rowley also said they will no longer represent Trump in a pending federal criminal probe into his efforts to overturn his loss in the 2020 election to President Joe Biden.
Trusty had made multiple appearances on television news shows Thursday evening and Friday morning to discuss the indictment of Trump in his capacity as his lawyer.
