Vivek Ramaswamy, a Republican running for president, reportedly attacked the “political media” on Sunday, accusing them of  carrying out the bidding of the American government.

Ramaswamy reiterated his promise to pardon former President Donald Trump during an appearance on “State of the Union” with anchor Dana Bash should Ramaswamy win the president and Trump be found guilty on federal charges.

“With due respect, I think it is shameful that I, as a competitor to president Trump in this race, have to ask questions that the media isn’t asking,” Ramaswamy said.

“The job of the political media if it has one job is to hold the U.S. government accountable. Instead … you’re seeing the media doing the bidding of the U.S. government.” he continued.

“What I see in that document is deeply politicized, Not a single mention of the Presidential Records Act — the most relevant statute to the actual alleged crime here.” Ramaswamy stated after being asked if he stood by his pledge to pardon former President Trump if elected.

Ramaswamy pleaded with Bash to probe Biden’s possible conversations with Merrick Garland, the attorney general, and Jack Smith, the special counsel, on the most recent Trump indictment.

The presidential candidate went on to suggest that only by asking the touch questions can journalism in the United States be revived.
