White Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked the million-dollar question today by a brave AP Reporter. Associated Press correspondent Josh Boak interrupted Jean-Pierre when she tried to dodge the question so he just came out and asked her straight up, “Have you weaponized government?”
Boak was talking about another Trump indictment after the former President received a target letter from Special Counsel Jack Smith. Karine’s answer came up way short.
She stammered about some nonsense before saying she would not comment on this particular case.
JOSH BOAK: And then, lastly, former President Trump received a letter from the Special Counsel that he’s being investigated for his role and efforts to overturn the 2020 election.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy says the Biden administration has decided to, quote, “weaponize government to go after their number one opponent,” end quote.
JEAN-PIERRE: I’ll say —
JOSH BOAK: Have you weaponized government?
JEAN-PIERRE: Here’s what we have done: The President respects the Department of Justice, their independence.
He has been very — very steadfast on making sure that the rule of law comes back in this administration. Comes back in the White House.
And clearly the administration more broadly.
And that’s what you have seen.
I’m just not going to comment on this particular case.
