Ron Johnson Says Scott Walker Is The Victim Of A 'Witch Hunt'
Fair, impartial, hard-hitting journalists like David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network know how to ask the tough questions…and by that we mean feed politicians the answers.
When Brody — who we have recently seen lavishing praise on GOP politicians including Ted Cruz, Chris Christie and Rand Paul — sat down with Sen. Ron Johnson at this weekend’s Road to Majority conference, he effectively gave the Wisconsin Republican talking points to respond to the controversy surrounding Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s alleged illegal campaign coordination during the 2011 and 2012 recall elections.
“Do you feel like this is somewhat of a witch hunt?” Brody asked Johnson. “It seems to be interesting that this is a very complicated issue and I’m wondering, because you’re from Wisconsin, I thought I’d get your take on this.”
The senator — surprise! — responded that the embattled governor is indeed a victim of a “scurrilous,” “unconstitutional,” “political witch hunt” by prosecutors who are “abridging the right of free speech.”
“It absolutely is a witch hunt,” Johnson said. “They’ve dumped these documents — now I know it’s under court order — but you know they are calling it a potential criminal scheme. What it really is, it’s an unconstitutional scheme on the part of the prosecutors. I think the prosecutors are probably facing greater legal liability than anything.”
“We have basically criminalized political activity, we began to criminalize the exercising of free speech rights,” he added.
