White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is under fire for lying about the searches for classified documents improperly stored at Biden’s Wilmington home.
Last Thursday Karine Jean-Pierre claimed SIX times the search for classified materials was complete.
Of course this was a lie because Joe Biden’s lawyers continued their search for materials and ‘discovered’ five more classified documents later that night.
Karine Jean-Pierre on Tuesday refused to answer any questions about GarageGate and searches.
“On Friday, did you or did you not know about the additional five pages?” CBS’s Weijia Jiang asked KJP.
“I already–I literally just answered that question.” KJP said.
“But I missed it, so is it yes or no?” the CBS reporter said.
KJP was visibly irritated.
“I provided the information that you all had at the time,” Karine Jean-Pierre said referring to a statement by Biden’s White House Counsel.
The CBS reporter continued to asked Karine Jean-Pierre if she knew about the additional 5 classified documents discovered when she went into last Friday’s press briefing.
“But I’m asking: Did you know?” Weijia Jiang said.
KJP: “No, I did not know. I’m saying I had the information. I actually said this to Cecilia, I said I had the information that you all had at the time…This is why we are trying to be very prudent”.
“When did you learn about the documents found at the Penn Center in November, and in Wilmington in December?” CBS’s Weijia Jiang said.
“When your team was doing a story on it because I was also asked a similar question…if our team has been engaged on this and I’ve been very clear,” KJP said.
