A Fox News host and a former CIA spokesperson ganged up on former House speaker and Republican pundit Newt Gingrich when he brought up the undisputed fact that George Soros funded candidates for prosecutors in riot-struck cities.
"The number one problem in almost all the cities is George Soros-elected, left-wing, anti-police, pro-criminal district attorneys who refuse to keep people locked up," Gingrich told the hosts of 'Outnumbered' on Wednesday.
"Both [Kamala] Harris and [Joe] Biden have talked very proudly about what they call progressive district attorneys," he continued. "Progressive district attorneys are anti-police, pro-criminal, and overwhelmingly elected with George Soros' money. They are a major cause of the violence we are seeing because they keep putting the violent criminals back on the street."
This is one of the weirdest exchanges I've ever seen on TV. @newtgingrich correctly points out that George Soros threw an unprecedented amount of money into DA races all over the country to elect radicals and Fox News basically told him to shut up.
