BALTIMORE, MD (WEAA) — House Majority Whip James Clyburn, (D-S.C.) is facing backlash for his comment on a policing reform bill. 

During a CNN interview, Rep. Clyburn said Democrats should not delay the new policing reform legislation even if it does not end qualified immunity.

He said, "I want to see good legislation and I know that sometimes you have to compromise... I don't want to see us throw out a good bill because we can't get a perfect bill".
