Dan Bongino, former U.S. Secret Service agent and conservative pundit, spoke before the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday form the perspective of a former law enforcement official who personally understands the serious sacrifices police make on behalf of American citizens.

“These are good men and women,” Bongino said before the committee members. “Yes, as with any profession, there are officers, no question, who aren’t suited for the job. Some would cause trouble, sometimes worse, we’ve seen that.”

Further, Bongino added that bad cops are “extremely rare” to find among the police community.

“I ask you please with the greatest respect and humility, please stop this defund police abomination before someone gets hurt,” Dan Bongino

“The special agents I work with and remain friends with to this day in the Secret Service join members of the NYPD, New York City Fire Department, on that tragic day of September 11, 2001. And what they did is they sprinted into those burning buildings and personally escorted people out. As we all know, those buildings collapsed, taking many of those brave NYPD and FDNY souls with them. Those brave souls were running into the buildings, everyone else was evacuating. These are the types of people I was honored and deeply privileged to work with. Public safety came first, everything else came second, sometimes even their own families,” Bongino explained.

Calls to defund the police, which have come with a rise in anger among public protests that have erupted nationwide, Bongino said, “will target these heroes.” “It’s not some amorphous mass that will be affected, it’s real heroes in real-time right now. Moving these heroes from your community and my community, will do nothing but ensure chaos and destruction.”

He continued, “Police officers are the frontlines, putting themselves between the evildoers among us and the honest hardworking Americans just yearning for some security and prosperity in a small slice of Americana.”

Holding police accountable, Bongino said, is something “we can and should commit to” but that it’s important to do so “without shredding the thin wall between civilization and chaos.”

“There are few jobs in this country as stressful as policing,” Bongino said. “I receive an email or a text a few times a year notifying me about the death or injury of a police officer that I knew, worked with, or knew someone that I worked with. Imagine if that was happening at your job. Think about that just for a minute. God forbid, you found out a coworker of yours was killed or injured in the line of duty in the course of doing their job. You didn’t just get this text, you got the text a couple times a year. That’s policing. That’s what they do. They risk their own lives for yours.”

Bongino said that years ago, he was approached by a spouse of a fallen officer who told him ‘the most wonderful sound in the world from a spouse of a police officer is the sound of velcro at night,’ referring to police officer’s body armor coming off after a shift. That sound, Bongino concluded, signifies that “they’re home safely.”

“I ask you please with the greatest respect and humility, please stop this defund police abomination before someone gets hurt,” Bongino concluded.

Correction: An earlier version of this story stated that Mr. Bongino testified before the House Oversight Committee when he actually spoke before the House Judiciary Committee.

As the jury selection for former President Donald Trump’s hush-money trial was being finalized, Max Azzarello set himself on fire Friday afternoon outside the Manhattan courthouse. The event was caught on video by multiple media outlets, and police officers can be seen in the videos dousing Azzarello’s body with a fire extinguisher.

National Review reports on the bizarre occurrence:

Azzarello appears to be a conspiracy-minded former Democratic campaign staffer and operations manager who threw pamphlets into the air before self-immolating that directed bystanders to his Substack blog, “The Ponzi Papers.” Azzarello writes on his Substack of a supposed “totalitarian con” and identifies himself as the man who set himself on fire outside of the Trump courthouse.

Azzarello warns of what he believes to be cryptocurrency ponzi scheme being manipulated by economic elites, most notably tech billionaire Peter Thiel. He claims the government is a “secret kleptocracy” full of financial criminals and highlights The Simpsons as a tool supposedly used by elites to brainwash the American people.

His LinkedIn page features a picture of himself with former president Bill Clinton, a subject of his conspiracy theories, and lists his various marketing and operations positions in politics and tech.
