Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) is defending former President Trump against Attorney General Merrick Garland and the FBI’s raid on his home.
Fox News host Steve Doocy is taking issue with it and slamming the Senator for a disingenuous attack, Mediaite Reports.
Doocy is calling Scott a liar after co-host Ainsley Earhardt used Scotts defense from an interview with Fox’s Bret Baier.
Scott, and Earhardt based their argument on the inconsistent application of the law.
Scott argued, that there is an “infrequent, inconsistent application of the rule of law as it relates to President Trump.”
Earhardt stated that Trump did the same as his predecessors did in taking sensitive materials from the White House.
Scott elaborated to Baier, “To me, until we see specificity within the affidavit, we will not have the kind of clarity that the American people need to come to their own conclusion… This unprecedented, alarming raid remains at a high level of urgency to bring about real solutions that today are illusive because Merrick Garland refuses to cooperate in releasing all the information necessary to understand what happened.”
Doocy fired back, “the senator knows that in a criminal investigation like this, they don’t release it until they’ve figured out whether or not somebody’s going to be charged or not… And if they’re not charged… they don’t release it so that they do not unfairly tarnish the reputation of an innocent person.”
Doocy has become a staunch defender of the FBI since the raid. Openly pushing back against some of the more incendiary remarks from Trump allies.

Well there goes any respect that I had for Steve Doocy!
I thought Steve Doocy was better than that because I highly regard his son Peter. I’m shocked at his comment and think Tim Scott is so admirable, highly intelligent and presents himself so well. I’m afraid Steve Doocy is totally wrong regarding his comment.
Time for Steve Doocy to go just like Juan Williams
No doubt most Americans believe the Trump opponents are corrupt.
I believe the Trump opponents believe Trump is as corrupt as they
are and that: “You show me the man and I’ll show you the crime”.
They couldn’t imagine an ethical politician and were surprised
that they couldn’t find anything in spite of all the scrutiny he
received for the past fie years without turning up a thing.
Amazing! I trusted Steve Doocy’s comments – not anymore! Leave Tim Scott alone!
More circular firing squad stuff. If you don’t think EXACTLY in accordance with the chosen narrative you are evil. This, like many other links, blogs, etc. sounds exactly like the Democrat “squad” leftists except in the opposite direction. If this continues the much ballyhooed Red Wave is going to look like a red trickle, and we will be left with government by Democrat progressive fascists for the foreseeable future.
The most dangerous Man in politics, is the man that can not be bought.
I am truly surprised at Steve Doocy’s remarks with Tim Scott. The way in which the DOJ & FBI treat President Trump & the way they treated Obama and Clinton I opposite of truth and equality under the law. Any fool should see that Trump has been the target of every democrat and a few republicans for more than 6 years. That should tell everyone something. If not, you are an idiot.
Very disappointing that Tim Scott would be attacked in such an egregious way by a newspaper reporter. Don’t give yourselves airs and graces because you are on tv. That doesn’t mean a hill of beans to me. Scott was championing Trump in his way and whether or not you care, Doozeybots, we care. Trump supporters care! Specificity is a lovely word and used in law often! And that’s what we need. A two tier system of justice is wrong. Democrats are wrong and if I ever had any respect for them any of them, I do not now!
I don’t know what Steve Doocy was thinking but all presidents take notes and papers for there library or write a books. So the difference between Trump and say Hillary is she let any foreign entry to get stuff off her computer from her personal server. Dangerous ! But she was only a secretary whereas Trump was President and had the power alone to declassify anything.
Where did that come from hair due?
