Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) went on Fox News on Friday night to warn that Joe Biden’s incoming presidential administration is positioning itself to use national security tools against political opponents.

Gaetz claimed to host Sean Hannity that he and several of his House colleagues were being targeted for the positions they held on election integrity.

“[W]e should take note of the language that the left is using — chemical warfare, insurrection, domestic terrorism,” the Republican said. “That’s not by accident, Sean. There are exquisite authorities in our national laws that allow our government to do things to terrorists that we would never allow against our own people. But in the incoming Biden administration, they want to use national security authorities against MAGA. They’re targeting Mo Brooks, Paul Gosar, Andy Biggs, Louie Gohmert, Madison Cawthorn and myself because we had the nerve to actually stand up and point out the need for election integrity.”
