Joe Biden and the Democrats have been caught red-handed and are desperately trying to cover it up. The White House press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, refused to answer questions from the press about the classified documents found in the president’s possession.
When asked if a Department of Justice official would be present at the podium to discuss the investigation, Jean-Pierre said the White House “cannot invite officials to discuss an ongoing investigation.”
When asked if national security had been jeopardized by the documents being in an unsecured location, Jean-Pierre refused to answer, saying it was a question for the Department of Justice. NBC News White House correspondent Peter Alexander argued that the White House was being “incomplete” in its transparency to the American public, since the documents were not publicly disclosed until the president’s special counsel announced their discovery on Saturday.
The press secretary also refused to answer whether the White House knew about the five additional pages of documents found in Biden’s garage in Delaware.
Instead, Jean-Pierre stated that the White House is being “prudent” and “consistent” about the documents and that it will “not interfere” with the DOJ’s ongoing investigation.
The White House’s refusal to answer questions and provide transparency to the American people is concerning. It raises questions about the president’s motives and the White House’s involvement in the investigation. It’s clear that the Biden administration is trying to cover something up, and it’s up to the American people to demand answers.
As Fox News White House correspondent Jacqui Heinrich said, “If you are not able to talk about this from the podium, would you invite a DOJ official to take our questions here?”
The American people deserve to know the truth about what’s going on with this investigation and the documents found in Biden’s possession. We need answers and we need them now.
What good is a Press Secretary who can never seem to answer any question from the press? Asking for a friend.
