A Republican lawmaker accuses Democrats of supporting late-term abortion without criticism from Fox's Maria Bartiromo

Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo discussed the fallout from former President Donald Trump’s statement on abortion, inviting Rep. Greg Murphy (R-NC) to talk about that and other issues. But when Murphy pushed a popular right-wing lie, Bartiromo let it slide.

Fox Business presenter Maria Bartiromo talked about the aftermath of ex-President Donald Trump’s remarks on abortion, and invited Rep. Greg Murphy (R-NC) to discuss that and other issues. But when Murphy repeated a popular false claim from the political right, Bartiromo didn't challenge him.

And that’s what elections are. They’re emotionally charged events.

But instead of challenging Murphy's false information, Bartiromo moved on to discuss Ukraine aid.Watch the video above via Fox Business. statement Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo discussed the fallout from former President Donald Trump’s statement on abortion, inviting Rep.
