Tennessee Congressman Steve Cohen says the FBI should investigate National Guard troops who are white and support President Trump.
The Democrat from Memphis made that jaw-dropping comment on CNN.
The FBI announced that all 25,000 National Guard troops would be vetted – that news coming after there were unconfirmed reports of a possible insider plot.
That led Congressman Cohen to suggest that the targets of the investigation should be white male Trump supporters.
Texas Governor Gregg Abbott said it was one of the most offensive things he’s ever heard. And the governor warned Washington that if anyone else questions the loyalty or professionalism of the Texas National Guard – they’ll need to call somebody else for help.

No one should ever question the loyalty or professionalism of the Texas National Guard. @TexasGuard
I authorized more than 1,000 to go to DC.
I'll never do it again if they are disrespected like this.https://t.co/STZDMz7PGm
