(JustPatriots.com)- Reports show that when National Security Council (NSC) spokesman John Kirby said he would defer most questions regarding President Joe Biden’s case involving classified documents to the White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, a laugh was heard from the press pool. Kirby then went on to answer a number of the questions.
According to Joseph Curl of the Washington Times, Karine Jean-Pierre may be the worst press secretary to ever hold the position.
Curl explained that Jean-Pierre usually enters, accompanied by a government representative who answers inquiries. That way there is less time for her to answer questions.
Even when the question is simple, she constantly refers to a large book that contains everything she is expected to say, yet she can’t respond to even the most fundamental queries.
A news article shows reporters have grown accustomed to having nearly all of their inquiries directed to Senior Advisor to White House Counsel’s Office Ian Sams. He has briefed reporters twice so far amid three tumultuous cases of classified documents being discovered in private spaces.
Last week, Kirby opened a White House briefing by discussing the choice to send American tanks to Ukraine. Kirby drew laughter when he told Jean-Pierre, “You’re welcome” for answering questions from ABC News White House correspondent MaryAlice Parks that were intended for Jean-Pierre.
Later in the briefing, Kirby continued by responding to a few inquiries from Peter Doocy, a Fox News White House correspondent.
Video reporting shows Doocy asked Kirby how hard it would be to leave a SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility) with classified material.
Kirby responded that everyone who enters a SCIF is aware of the entrance requirements as well as the exit requirements. You cannot bring in your personal devices. Furthermore, unless the material is properly secured, you cannot exit with it. If you do it inadvertently, you must self-report.
Kirby claimed Joe Biden self-reported.
Doocy retorted that if you self-report, you should also make sure that you give the material back to the secured location and be transparent about it.
