Wednesday on Fox News' America's Newsroom, Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL) shot back at President Joe Biden for recent remarks about crime, saying that he should maybe put his money where his mouth is.
Biden should deal with his Vice President Kamala Harris's efforts to raise money to bail out rioters in 2020 or go look at the sorry state of cities that have voted to defund police, Waltz said on the program.
“This is just a blatant and kind of pathetic political stunt in the run-up to the midterms," he said, pushing back at the rhetoric that Republicans are soft on crime for criticizing the FBI.
"We all know that 99.9% of Republicans, when they talk about the FBI, it’s the leadership that needs reform," he argued. "It’s the leadership of the DOJ and we fully support the agents that are out there, many of [whom] I’ve worked with, actually, in combat zones."
It will be difficult for Biden's words to get much traction with the American people given that many of them now believe the FBI is acting out of political bias, based on very real testimony and statements by people like Mark Zuckerberg.
