Raphael Warnock, one of the two Democrats in Georgia’s Senate runoff elections, has denied accusations that he ran over his now ex-wife’s foot with his car.
Police body-camera footage from the March incident was released Tuesday on Tucker Carlson Tonight.
Warnock and ex-wife Ouleye Ndoye were reportedly in a domestic dispute when the incident occurred. Warnock denied that he ran over her foot and told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that “it didn’t happen.”
He told police that his wife refused to close the right rear passenger door of his car so that he could leave. He said he began to “slowly” drive forward and then heard his wife accuse him of driving over her foot.
“I barely move, and all of a sudden she’s screaming that I ran over her foot. I don’t believe it,” Warnock told the officers.
According to the footage, Ndoye told the officer at the scene, “This man is running for United States Senate and all he cares about right now is his reputation.”
“I’ve been trying to be very quiet about the way that he is for the sake of my kids and his reputation,” she continues. “I’ve tried to keep the way that he acts under wraps for a long time and today he crossed the line. So that is what is going on here. He’s a great actor. He’s phenomenal at putting on a really good show.”
AJC reported that Warnock was not charged with a crime and according to the police report, medical officials did not find visible signs of injury on her foot.
Warnock and Ndoye were amid divorce negotiations when the incident occurred. The divorce was finalized two months later.

FBI punishing employees who attended Jan 6 rally by revoking security clearances

A letter from ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), to FBI Director Christopher Wray, addresses how several whistleblowers exposed the FBI of stripping employees of security clearances.
The letter cites claims of multiple whistleblowers who say the FBI has been purposely punishing those who attended then-president Donald Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally on January 6, 2021, by revoking their clearances. Reportedly many of them did not even enter the U.S. Capitol.
“While FBI employees may not participate in partisan political campaigns, [they] do not give up their rights to engage in political speech activity,” wrote Jordan. “We have serious concerns that the FBI appears to be retaliating against employees for engaging in political speech disfavored by FBI leadership,” he added.
The primary whistleblower is described as a 20-year veteran of the FBI and U.S. military. Jordan believes the FBI’s actions could potentially result in the administrative extermination of the individuals’ employment because the FBI requires top-secret security clearances for majority of its employees.
Jordan has required that the FBI brief the committee on the security clearances matter by May 20.
