The White House refused Monday to address revelations stemming from special counsel John Durham’s latest filing.
During Monday’s press briefing, Fox News White House correspondent Jacqui Heinrich repeatedly pressed White House principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about the revelations. Jean-Pierre, however, bucked each attempt.
In fact, before Heinrich could even finish her initial question, Jean-Pierre had already refused to answer it.
“This news about the Durham investigation: Does the president have any concerns about a candidate for president using computer experts to infiltrate computer systems of competing candidates, or even the president-elect for the goal of creating a narrative? Is that something that —” Heinrich said.
“That’s something I can’t speak to from this podium, so I refer you to the Department of Justice,” Jean-Pierre interrupted.
Interestingly, Heinrich asked a question directly related to President Joe Biden’s thoughts, which certainly falls under the responsibilities of the White House. Given that Heinrich was not asking a question that fell under the purview of the Justice Department, Jean-Pierre’s response indicates the White House decided before the press briefing not to answer questions related to Durham’s investigation.
