Fetterman on Why He Declined Debate, Whether There Will Be One Before Election: I’ll ‘Engage’ in Talks When There’s ‘Serious Conversation’ 

During an interview aired on Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “11th Hour,” Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. and U.S. Senate candidate John Fetterman (D) responded to a question on why he turned down his Republican opponent, Dr. Mehmet Oz’s invitation to debate and if the two will debate before the election by stating he’ll “engage” when the Oz campaign has “a serious conversation” but “right now, the fact that they have chosen to have a deeply unserious campaign to just ridicule somebody that is just recovering from a stroke.”

California Artist Rebuilds Anti-Xi Jinping Statue Destroyed by Chinese Spies

In July, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) indicted two agents of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for working with a ring of Chinese spies whose mission was to intimidate and silence critics of the Chinese Communist regime living abroad.
