  • California Governor Gavin Newsom attempted to accuse Fox News Jesse Watters of “aiding and abetting” the hammer attack on Paul Pelosi.
  • “Now I watched this one guy, Jesse Watters or something on Fox News. What he’s been saying about Paul Pelosi the last five, six months, mocking him consistently. Don’t tell me that’s not aiding and abetting all this. Of course it is,” said Newsom.
