Amy Klobuchar blames Trump for attack on FBI field office

Fox News reported that an armed Ohio man was fatally shot by police last week after he attempted to breach an FBI field office. However, one high-profile Democrat recently said someone else is ultimately responsible for what happened.

During a Sunday interview, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar said the attacker’s actions can be blamed on former President Donald Trump. 

NBC host says some Republicans “have called for civil war”

Breitbart reported that Klobuchar made that claim when she appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” and spoke with guest host Andrea Mitchell.

Mitchell at one point brought up last week’s FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Florida home, saying, “Let me ask you about some of the outrage from elected Republicans.”

“Some have called for civil war. Some have said, ‘Attack the FBI.’ Some of your own colleagues have had very strong rhetoric. What do you think?” the host asked.

Mitchell didn’t specify which elected Republicans have supposedly called for civil war or encouraged their supporters to launch attacks against the FBI and Klobuchar didn’t bother to ask, instead responding with, “This concerns me so much, Andrea.”

“We already saw from the insurrection the effect that Donald Trump’s language – that he has so many people out there that will just follow him, and he feeds on that, and he sends out messages to them,” the Democratic senator asserted.

“Look at what just happened in Cincinnati. One of his followers who had taken part in the insurrection tried to kill people, FBI agents. And then there was a major security problem.”

“He ends up getting killed. The whole thing goes down. This is the kind of things that result when you’ve got a president that attacks law enforcement and attacks the law.”

Accused murderer was freed by Democrat-supported bail fund

“I thought in the old days the Republican Party used to stand with law enforcement. And I hope some of them do today because this kind of rhetoric is very dangerous to our country,” she remarked.

Klobuchar made no reference to Democrats who supported anti-police riots in 2020, some of which turned deadly.

Those figures included then vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris, who tweeted a link to a fund that bailed rioters out of jail. Fox News reported last year that one of the fund’s beneficiaries was later charged with murder.
