Unvetted Afghan Evacuees Raising Security Concerns
The process of the U.S. evacuation from Afghanistan is under deeper scrutiny after a Congressional memo from Senate Republicans cited allegations that the Biden administration has only vetted a small portion of the 82,000 refugees brought into the U.S. Congressman Michael Waltz (R-FL), an Afghanistan War veteran, joins to break down why he believes a rushed evacuation has resulted in a weakened vetting process and to discuss the importance of slowing down the vetting to prevent compromising national security. He later discusses the threat ISIS-K and al-Qaeda pose to the U.S., how the loss of our intelligence operations in that region create vulnerabilities and why he believes Afghanistan is an issue that is here to s stay.
Bail Reform is a growing movement especially with many on the left. Advocates argue many poor people cannot afford to pay bail after they are arrested and wind up serving days, weeks and sometimes even years for a crime they have yet to be convicted of. Critics, however, say bail reform and low bails are releasing dangerous criminals too soon and putting communities in danger. Jim Trusty, a former federal prosecutor, discusses the bail reform debate and how states and cities can address the problems of the bail system without releasing dangerous people.

FOX News Rundown EXTRA: Is The 'Legacy Media' Giving Up On President Biden?
Maybe it's the sinking poll numbers or the rising prices, but the White House is already confronted with questions about the President's plans for 2024.
And after just ten months in office, spokesman Jen Psaki has already tried to reassure the press, and his opponents that he does plan to run again.
But that hasn't quieted the speculated about his age, his health and reports of tensions with the Vice President's office.
Earlier this week, host Lisa Brady spoke with Howard Kurtz, hots of the "Media Buzz" on the FOX News Channel and the "Media Buzzmeter" podcast, about these questions and how the media has been covering the Biden presidency as they have struggled in recent months.
Kurtz weighed on whether he thought President Biden would run again and whether or former President Trump would choose to run again in 2024 as well.
The original interview was too long and we couldn't include all of it in our segment. On The FOX News Rundown EXTRA, you will hear our entire conversation with FOX News' Howard Kurtz and hear more of his breakdown of the Biden White House's political problems.
