(RoyalPatriot.com )- On Monday, after Special Counsel John Durham filed a motion in federal court accusing former lawyers for the Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential campaign of paying for a contractor to spy on former President Donald Trump’s campaign, the Biden White House refused to answer any questions on the matter.
During the daily press briefing, deputy White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked whether President Joe Biden has any concerns about a candidate for president “using computer experts to infiltrate computer systems of competing candidates.”
“That’s something I can’t speak to from this podium, so I refer you to the Department of Justice,” she said.
She was clearly just ignoring the question and moving on, though, because she absolutely could have spoken about it from that podium. The Department of Justice cannot provide an opinion from the president about whether it is right for a presidential candidate to use computer experts to spy on a competing candidate – but the White House press secretary can. That’s literally their job.
The reporter followed up by asking whether what was described in the report constituted “spying,” which prompted Jean-Pierre to repeat her false claim that she couldn’t comment.
The same reporter even went in for a third try but got the same response.
It’s not surprising President Joe Biden doesn’t want to answer the question. If the allegations are true – and Special Counsel John Durham believes they are, based on years of investigations – then Hillary Clinton’s campaign paid a tech company to spy on communications from Trump Town and to even spy on White House servers during President Donald Trump’s time in the White House.
That sounds like a crime, doesn’t it?
