Fox News anchor Bret Baier on Thursday hailed the Republican election officials and members of Donald Trump’s administration who stood up to his bogus efforts to overturn the 2020 election as “patriots.” (Watch the video below.)
In commentary during the latest House hearing on the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot, Baier disputed the select committee’s “premise” that the country was on the brink of losing democracy, citing the efforts of those officials, including leaders of Trump’s Department of Justice.
“If anything, this testimony shows ... all of the state officials, these officials in DOJ, who again were working for President Trump, stood up saying, ‘We have an oath to the Constitution,’” Baier said.
“Even though the president wanted to keep on trying to overturn the election, there were patriots along the way who said we can’t do this, and so I’m not sure that that premise sells with all the witnesses they are putting forward,” he added.
Fox News colleague Neil Cavuto countered that if one of them had caved to Trump, the outcome could have been “very different.”
