Fox News host Sean Hannity challenged
House delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton over her participation in House floor speeches on the Ferguson, Missouri, grand jury decision not to indict a white police officer in the death of an unarmed black teenager.
"Did you read the evidence in this case?" Hannity asked Norton on his show Thursday.
"I did not, and that is not a concern," Norton responded, saying that the Ferguson and Eric Garner cases both raise larger questions about how police treat black men.
Hannity said that Norton and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus took to the floor with "a narrative that has proven to be false." The grand jury report in Ferguson showed that some witnesses backed up Officer Darren Wilson's claim that Michael Brown Jr. was charging at him when Wilson shot and killed him.
"I have not read the transcript because my interest is not in what happened, my interest is in what should happen — where we go forward from here," Norton said.
"I hope you'll take the time to read evidence in a case before you talk about a case. I think it will be helpful," Hannity said.
