WATCH: Psaki ties the rise in crime to the pandemic for the second time

For the second time, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tied the rise in crime to the pandemic.

“We know we’ve seen an increase in crime over the course of the pandemic, we’ve seen that timeline,” Psaki told a Fox News reporter.

Last week Peter Doocy asked Psaki “When a huge group of criminals organizes themselves and they want to go loot a store.. until the shelves are clean, you think that’s because of the pandemic?”

She replied “I think a root cause in a lot of communities is the pandemic, Yes”
