Reporter Grills Karine Jean-Pierre For Not Answering Question About Biden Document Scandal

 White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was grilled by a reporter Wednesday for not answering a question about President Joe Biden’s classified document scandal.

Wednesday’s press briefing comes as Jean-Pierre has repeatedly refused to answer questions about the investigation and has instead claimed that the administration will not comment on an active investigation or has directed reporters to talk to the Department of Justice or White House special counsel’s office.

“I want to reference an interview that President Biden did in mid-September with ’60 Minutes,'” the reporter said. “And in that interview, he chided former President Trump for having in his possession, classified documents. He called it irresponsible.”

“First of all, do you think it was proper for President Biden to comment on an ongoing DOJ investigation?” the reporter asked.

“So I’m gonna say this, and we’re gonna keep it really short today, as it relates to this particular issue, as it relates to an ongoing legal matter,” Jean-Pierre responded. “I’m going to refer you to Department of Justice with that specific as it relates to anything that you want to ask of us about this legal matter, I would refer you to the White House counsel office.”

“I’m going to leave it there,” she continued. Not going to go into further.”

“I’m simply asking you to comment on the person that you work for,” the reporter responded.

“I just, I just commented,” she claimed. “I just commented. We’re moving on.”

“Go ahead. Go ahead. Go ahead. Go ahead. Go ahead,” Jean-Pierre said to another reporter as she frantically tried to get out of the situation. “No, go ahead.”

“I already answered your question,” Jean-Pierre said to the reporter whose question she did not answer.

“You really didn’t,” the reporter responded.

“Well, I did,” she insisted.

“No, you didn’t —” she responded.

“Well, it’s your, it’s your opinion,” she claimed. “It’s your opinion. It’s your opinion.”
