Jesse Watters, a Fox News host, defied the network by speaking out about the election audit in Maricopa County, Arizona.
Watters began citing the immigration problem at the US-Mexico border, FBI corruption, Hunter Biden's questionable business dealings, and a slew of other scandals during a segment on his Fox show to make a point about Congress and politicians being "all talk and no action."
“The F.B.I. exposed again this week for odious corruption. The I.G. report found the Bureau systematically lied and tricked the FISA Court for years into getting warrants to spy on American citizens. They faked evidence, hid evidence, abused our privacy, and the media again hiding this sleaze from the country,” Watters began.
“Jim Comey signed off on all of it. But the most corrupt F.B.I. Chief since Hoover skedaddled with a Fed book deal and just basked in the glow of left-wing worship. That’s the retirement package when you run the resistance,” he continued.
“They’re throwing it in our faces now. POLITICO just confirmed Hunter Biden’s laptop was legit, and that’s how you rig a vote. Run the October surprise a year after the election,” he said.
“So Biden lied, the family was in business with the Chinese communists and they were holding 10 for the big guy. Don’t hold your breath for a prosecution. So, there’s a dangerous pattern in the United States. Politicians, prosecutors, and the press are abusing their power to wage political warfare against innocent people. And even when the abuse is exposed, the press runs cover for the conspiracy,” he said.
Watters then mentioned the audit.
“In Arizona, Joe Biden beat Donald Trump by 11,000 votes. An audit in Maricopa County done by an outside firm found 57,000 questionable ballots just in that one county. The media wasn’t interested in this, and the audit wasn’t as thorough as it could have been because Arizona officials wouldn’t fully cooperate and some evidence was removed and destroyed,” he said.
“We’re picking it apart, but we need more honest Americans on the inside run for office, be a reporter. I’d tell you to be a lawyer, but this country does not need any more lawyers, just the right ones in the right places. So, get it right — or be a judge,” Watters declared.
“We can’t win the battle from the outside. You know what you need to do,” he concluded before speaking with Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz.

Watters did something most Fox News hosts have largely declined to do: he broke ranks and referenced the audit on Fox News, albeit briefly.
On his route to the US-Mexico border this week, former Missouri Republican Eric Greitens spoke with Arizona state legislators and called for big action in the state.
At the Arizona Capitol, Greitens and Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers discussed the audit of 2.1 million ballots in Maricopa County with conservative reporter Jordan Conradson.
Greitens, who is running for the United States Senate in 2022, met with Arizona legislators to hear more about the audit and to discuss next measures for fixing elections.
