A former FBI special agent slammed Democrats Thursday for the “politicization of law enforcement” as cities nationwide fail to report crucial crime data for last year.

Former FBI special agent and former Navy SEAL Jonathan T. Gilliam joined “Fox & Friends First” to discuss the impact the lack of reporting has on tracking violence in city streets.

“I try to stay neutral when I look at these things and say that this is a reason or that’s a reason without the politics, but the reality is, and law enforcement is becoming more and more beholden to leftist mayors and governors and even the president,” Gilliam told co-host Carley Shimkus.

“So when we look at the cities where these reportings are lagging behind, we’re looking at predominantly liberal cities where the majority of crime is taking place,” he continued. “And they have a myriad of excuses, but the reality is the politicization of law enforcement is so out of control that we can’t even get real statistics.”
