Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy might be tipping Fox News' hand about the whole situation with the FBI searching Mar-a-Lago by calling out Republican lawmaker Steve Scalise for claiming that the FBI “went rogue.” Doocy pointed out that it was a legitimate search warrant, a factual claim that flies in the face of all of the Republican talking points that we've seen this week. Farron Cousins explains what's happening.

It looks like Donald Trump and his messaging. And actually most of the Republican parties messaging of, Hey, let's trash. The FBI is already starting to fall apart on Thursday morning, just yesterday. Folks, Steve Ducey sitting right there on that Fox and friend's couch, a loyally staunch conservative was interviewing Republican representative Steve Scalise. And once Mr. Scalise decided to go off on a tangent lying about the FBI, Steve Ducey apparently had enough and called him out on it to his face. This is beautiful. Here's the clip,

The FBI with 35,000, uh, members. You know, now they apparently are receiving a lot of specific field agents are receiving specific death threats because there are a number of people online in elsewhere who are demonizing the FBI and some Republicans, Paul Goler Republican in your caucus from Arizona said, we must destroy the FBI. We must save America. I stand with Donald Trump, Marjorie Taylor green says defend the FBI. I'm just curious. Whatever happened to the Republican party, backing the blue and in particular, the 35 members of law enforcement, federal law enforcement at the FBI.

And frankly, we're, we're very strong in supporters of law enforcement. And it concerns everybody. If you see some agents go rogue, and if you see an agency that doesn't have the right checks and balances at the top, this is coming from Steve who went rogue,

Rogue. They were following a search warrant.

We wanna find that out. We wanna find that out. And that's why we're asking these questions because

Who went rogue, they were following a search warrant, Ducey exclaims. And of course he's a hundred percent, right? Like that's what this was. It wasn't a raid. They were executing a search warrant that a judge approved because the DOJ walked in there and was able to prove that we have probable cause that this dude might be breaking the law. The judge examined this, the judge knew how dangerous it would be to just say, ah, screw it, go do whatever. I don't care. There was thoughtful consideration that went into every step of this process here. And it's so obvious that even Steve Ducey knows it and Scalise, I love, I love how he's like. Well, as you know, we're, we're trying to find out who went rogue, right? I mean, we don't know. I've just throwing out baseless accusations here. And hoping that later on the evidence will pile up kind of like Republicans have done with the claims of election fraud in 2020, we're just gonna throw out random claims and then hope that, you know, maybe someday the evidence will come roll it in, but oh man, it's not coming in.

Is it? Here's the thing. We know that now it was a, uh, I guess you'd call them a leaker or informant, whatever you wanna call them inside Margo, that of course tipped off the feds that there were boxes that they didn't get their hands on, that they probably need to. That's what led the DOJ to go to the judge presented this probable cause evidence based on witness testimony, eyewitness testimony, um, and they probably had even more evidence to back it up. Cuz I witnessed testimony alone. Typically not enough to get an FBI, to carry out a search and seizure warrant and the rest is history, but what's really interesting to me. Again, this clip happened on Thursday morning, Thursday morning, the raid happened on Monday. Republicans were up and armed for days. They still are. Let's be clear about that. They still are, but this is how quickly their narrative has fallen apart to the point where even Steve Ducey is telling a sitting member of Congress. Yeah, that didn't happen. You are lying to us. You are misleading the public. And when you've already lost Fox news after three days, imagine how many more people are gonna be calling BS on this narrative a week from now.

  1. Someone needs to post the names and addresses of the right-wing gaslighters and create conspiracy theories about them being government plants. Do the Monsters are Due on Maple Street thing to them and see how they like it.

  2. Republicans back the blue that patrol our streets everyday….they don’t back bidengarland enforcement which is basically gestapo. You actually have a video about this like no one really knows? Wow

  3. I am getting sick and tired of these political trumpians who still lie their asses off for traitor trump. They keep wanting to destroy the very legal system that protects their right to speak. Even when the speech is a lie!

  4. Steve Doocy & Peter Doocy aren't heros when they, on the rare occasion, get things right. Make no mistake, they are great at being shills for Fox entertainment and the RNC. This particular segment however, Steve Doocy asked one of the most important questions that could have been asked in such a conversation. I expect he was probably loudly reprimanded by his overlords, but I'm very glad he did it.

  5. Just like comedy, the freaks are happy with everything, as long as it's not about them. Here's a thought, don't commit crimes or go to comedy shows if you can't handle sht. That being said, Trump & Klan so want to be mafia, this should be a badge of honour. Will he get away with affluenza…..?

  6. I like how his co-hosts have dead eyes as he is speaking. Looking either as if they are holding on to a fart for dear life, or doesn't know how to react.

  7. As a former Registered Republican no longer tell me about Republican Values, Family, Law, Women's Health and Rights or supporting any Republican Candidate who only care about Themselves and their own Political Views and not those of the People who have elected them into Office to Represent them and Support the Constitution.
    Republicans except for a very few have proven that they have sold Themselves to the Highest Level of Who will support their own personal agenda and not those of the People.

  8. While it is nice to see someone at Fox finally say something right, It is too little too late. Fox and media outlets like them, have done nothing but rile up cult 45 for years now, and the monster they have created will turn on them, when they finally come to their senses and try and repent.

  9. If there where a total of over 40 boxes of highly classified papers in Mar-A-Largo and the subpoena was for some specific documents located in any one of them, how would anyone know where to look for those spe4cific papers without accidentality looking at other highly classified secret documents ?
    removing the documents from the White House is a federal crime and Trump needs to be prosecuted

  10. And off the GOP go, looking for the evidence to crowbar into their pretzel theories, rather than looking for whatever evidence actually exists and then piecing it together to see what picture forms. Sadly, that kind of investigation precludes conspiracy theories, so won’t meet GOP needs.

  11. Isn't it strange that the Republicans are all for supporting law enforcement when they are dealing with non–white people but not when rich white people are the target of investigations?
    No one said. "The Justice Department is too powerful!!" or. "The FBI must be tamed!!" until Trump's house was the subject of a duly authorized search warrant.

  12. I guess he doesn't remember that he got shot for doing just this kind of thing he is doing now. I really cannot see how anyone can be as stupid as the people who vote for the criminals..

  13. As a former Registered Republican no longer tell me about Republican Values, Family, Law, Women's Health and Rights or supporting any Republican Candidate who only care about Themselves and their own Political Views and not those of the People who have elected them into Office to Represent them and Support the Constitution.
    Republicans except for a very few have proven that they have sold Themselves to the Highest Level of Who will support their own personal agenda and not those of the People.

  14. And Steve's Nepotistical hiree, and kid who can't get a job on his own, Phil, who gave Jen Psakj nothing but carp, tripe and garbage .
    Steve go straight i hear the Young Turks want an irresponsible reporter

  15. Scalice is having a difficult time defending the indefensible. Going against the FBI, which is the Federal Government, and represents Law Enforcement, is tantamount to siding with Criminals against America's Justice System.

  16. And they found what they were looking for, things involving national security, yet they still defend DJTurd. Vote these I’d.ots out because they are showing you what they want for America

  17. republicans are the new circus side show, Please Vote Blue
    Dr. Trump covid 45 and his GOP MAGA zombie cult clones have screwed up America , I blame all the crime and hatred on one term donald (he tried to hang his vice president)
    Omorossa was right but nobody listened…………..
