Kash Patel tells members of media, government: 'We're going to come after you'

For weeks during his campaign, former President Donald Trump has hinted at the possibility of seeking revenge against his political adversaries if elected. He pledged to “root out” those he views as opponents and even stated that he wouldn’t act like a dictator “except for Day One.”

Now, a key political ally, Kash Patel, who is being considered for the role of acting attorney general under a potential second Trump administration, is reinforcing these threats. Patel, a former Defense Department official, asserted on Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast that they would target what he called “conspirators” within both the government and the media.

“We will identify the conspirators not only in government but also in the media,” Patel declared during the podcast. When questioned by Bannon about delivering “serious prosecution and accountability” against political opponents, Patel affirmed their intent to pursue legal action, whether criminally or civilly.

Bannon emphasized the seriousness of their stance, stating, “This is not just rhetoric; we’re absolutely dead serious.” He echoed unfounded conspiracy theories about secretive elite groups controlling the country, asserting that such actions were a threat to the constitutional republic.

Former President Trump, currently facing 91 felony counts across multiple court cases, including federal charges related to attempting to overturn the 2020 election results, maintains his innocence, attributing the legal actions against him to political motives.

Patel, previously endorsed by Donald Trump Jr. as a potential acting attorney general, made these remarks amid Trump’s escalated anti-government and anti-media rhetoric on the campaign trail. Recently, Trump called for a government crackdown on MSNBC after the network criticized him, expressing his desire for consequences for their “illegal political activity.”

This post raised concerns among journalists and media critics who perceive it as a threat to the freedom of the press protected by the First Amendment.
