Former U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard claimed Wednesday that a friend of hers from rural Hawaii was visited by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for simply visiting Washington, D.C., on January 6, 2021.

During a Wednesday interview on the “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, the former Hawaii representative said she recently ran into a friend of hers who told her that FBI agents showed up at his house in Lā’ie, which is a small community on the Hawaiian island of Oahu.

“He’s like, ‘Yeah, they came and knocked on my door because I took my son to go and witness democracy.’ So they were part of those thousands of people who were out there on the lawn of the capital,” Gabbard told Joe Rogan on his podcast. “They didn’t arrest him, they didn’t charge him with anything… but how is it that years later… they go and find this guy and his family in a rural Mormon community in Lā’ie in Hawaii?”

Gabbard claimed that the FBI is “capturing all of the data” of the people who were present in Washington, D.C., around the time of the storming of Capitol Hill on January 6. She added, “They are continuing to widen that net, looking at flight records and who bought tickets and who booked hotels and all of this stuff, for what? You’re going to go, the FBI is going to go and investigate people who showed up there on the lawn on the capital?”

In response to the former congresswoman’s story, Rogan suggested that the FBI’s actions were “scare tactics.”

Agreeing with Rogan, Gabbard said the FBI’s visit to her friend who visited Washington, D.C., during the Capitol Hill protest was “absolutely scare tactics.” The former representative warned that since government agencies are currently “turning on the American people for political reasons,” even legislation passed with good intentions can “lead to the very worst places.”

The former congresswoman also questioned the priorities of the government agencies, explaining that by using “limited resources and limited people” to investigate everyone who traveled in the D.C. region on January 6, the government is not using resources to track the millions of illegal immigrants coming into the country.

“Are they tracking who they are? No, they’re not. Are they tracking where they’re going? No, they’re not. We have no idea,” Gabbard said. “People coming from the Middle East and Asia and Eastern Europe and Venezuela, gang members, like all of this stuff is happening right before our very eyes, and they’re going and knocking on my friend’s door in Lā’ie because he brought his 14-year-old son to Washington D.C. that week?”
