Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy grilled press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Tuesday over the matter of weaponization following the FBI raiding 45th President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home in Palm Beach, Florida Monday.

Trump was in New York City when the raid was carried out. An FBI source confirmed that FBI agents from Washington, D.C. who are on the bureau’s Evidence Response Team conducted the raid and notified the Miami Field Office just before, Fox News reported.

“Is there a concern here that you guys don’t say more and these Republicans, who are accusing this White House of weaponizing the Justice Department, weaponizing the FBI — that’s gonna become the public sentiment, if you guys don’t say once and for all, ‘We are not doing that'”, Peter Doocy asked Jean-Pierre Tuesday.

“First of all, we’re just not going to comment under the Department of Justice investigations,” the press secretary said.

“Is this White House weaponizing the Justice Department and the FBI against political opponents?” Doocy then directly asked her.

Jean Pierre deflected from Doocy’s question and refused to answer “yes or no”, but claimed the White House was not going to comment on a “criminal investigation”.


Doocy also wondered if she considers Donald Trump to be a “political rival” of Joe Biden:
