Jamal Brown, former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign press secretary, took to Twitter Monday lambasting President Donald Trump for his response to the growing violence in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd. Forty-six-year-old Floyd lost his life after being aggressively pinned down by a Minneapolis police officer for more than 8 minutes as he gasped for air, fell unconscious, and then died.
In wake of the violence that followed Floyd’s death, the President held a joint conference call meeting with governors across the country early Monday. During the call, Trump reportedly criticized the state leaders for being “weak” against the violent rioters and pressured them to enforce the rule of law.
Brown referred to Trump’s call for governors to gain control as an action against ‘black people’ and likened Trump to a klansman, he wrote on Twitter.
“White supremacists have been inciting violence & burning buildings over the last few days under the guise of ‘protestors.’ Now @realDonaldTrump is calling on governors and law enforcement to take action against “protestors” – i.e. Black people. Say it plain: Trump is a Klansman,” Brown wrote.

A number of protests turned violent overnight including in the nation’s Capitol where a historic church was set ablaze and looters raided businesses across the city.

Carter on Hannity: House Judiciary Committee will subpoena DOJ over Biden classified docs
Sara Carter joined Sean Hannity to discuss the classified documents being found in multiple places of both work and residence of Joe Biden from his time in the Obama administration. Carter states “One of the big questions from the House Judiciary Committee is how did President Joe Biden’s legal team stumble upon the classified documents that were found at Biden’s former office at the Penn Biden Center.”
“Why hasn’t the FBI been vocal and transparent about the fact that they searched that office and found the classified documents on November 2nd” Carter questions. Additionally, they have not yet “disclosed to the House Committees whether or not they had searched the house in Delaware or Rehoboth Beach to the full extent,” says Carter who noted the committees wanted the information by January 27th.
Carter spoke to sources who told her they will be serving subpoenas to “personnel from the Department of Justice because Attorney General Merrick Garland has refused to answer specific questions they sent to him on January 13th.”
