'TREATING CHRISTIANS LIKE CRIMINALS!': Hawley Unloads on DOJ for Church Spying Scandal [WATCH]

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.12.23

Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley is furious with the DOJ after whistleblower reports revealed intentions to spy on Americans in places of worship in the name of combating domestic terrorism.

Hawley unloaded on Tuesday night’s Hannity.

“Senator, did the attorney general of the U.S. just lie to you in that exchange?” Hannity asked Hawley. “Do we now know that?”

“Sure looks like it, Sean — sure looks like it,” Hawley replied. “Listen, he knew at the time that he couldn’t answer the question because it looks so bad. He knew that it looked beyond the pale, and it is beyond the pale, Sean, for the FBI to be going into any church in America and trying to spy on Americans, and now we know that’s exactly what they were doing. They are infiltrating churches. They are trying to spy on us.”

“They regard churches apparently as the enemy and church-going Americans as akin to terrorists,” he continued. “And, yeah, the attorney general sat right there and told me, no, we don’t do that, and now we know they do, in fact, target churches, and they have been. There’s got to be accountability for this, Sean. He’s got to be called on the carpet. The House needs to call him. The Senate should call him, too. But the Democrats will never do it.”

Hawley shared the clip on Twitter, adding “Now we know. The FBI did in fact try to infiltrate churches. The Attorney General misled Congress. And this administration is treating Christians like criminals.”
