French President Emmanuel Macron responded to a growing political storm over a video showing his top bodyguard assaulting May Day protesters by saying he bore responsibility, lawmakers from his party said Tuesday.Macron has been under fire in the biggest crisis of his tenure after footage emerged of the head of his security detail Alexandre Benalla hitting a male protester and dragging away a woman, while off duty and wearing a riot helmet and police tags.Macron's aides did not inform prosecutors about the May 1 incident, despite a law requiring public officials to alert authorities if laws are broken.This would be unlikely to succeed as Macron's LREM party holds a solid majority.
