Biden Drops The Hammer On Republican Calls To Defund The FBI


President Biden told Republicans that the FBI won’t be defunded and pushed for additional funding for law enforcement.

CNN reported on the White House’s response to GOP calls to defund the FBI:

“Just like President Biden rejects defunding the police, he rejects defunding other law enforcement, including the FBI,” White House deputy press secretary Andrew Bates said in a statement exclusively to CNN Wednesday.

“The President has called for boosting police funding through the COPS program and hiring 100,000 additional officers. He also included over $10.8 billion for the FBI in his most recent budget. The men and women who bravely serve in law enforcement to keep all of us safe deserve the resources and support that they need to do their jobs – not seeing their budgets slashed,” he said.

In other words, Republicans can forget about their plan to retaliate against the FBI for searching Trump’s private club by defunding the Bureau. Biden isn’t going to allow law enforcement to be defunded and the American people to be less safe because Donald Trump wants to attempt to intimidate the FBI.

President Biden has the backs of those who protect the American people. The Justice Department is no longer serving one man in the White House. The DOJ is back to working for the American people.

The President will not allow Republicans in Congress to abuse their power by attacking the FBI.
