Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Al.) refused an interview when confronted by CNN journalist Jim Acosta over the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, telling Acosta he does not trust the network to report on him fairly or accurately.
“Congressman, is there any way we can get you to talk about Jan. 6,” Acosta, who was seeking to talk to GOP lawmakers about conspiracy theories surrounding the attack, sought to question Brooks as the lawmaker was unlocking his bike outside the Capitol on Saturday.
“I do not do interviews with CNN because I do not trust CNN to be honorable or truthful,” the Republican said without turning around to face Acosta.
Acosta asked Brooks if he believed “Antifa was behind Jan. 6,” to which Brooks replied: “I’ve already said what I’m going to say. I don’t trust ya’ll to be truthful or honest.”
