“I’m Not Going to go Into Details of a Private Conversation” – Psaki When Asked About Biden Pressuring Afghan President to Lie in Leaked Transcript (VIDEO)

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Wednesday was confronted about Joe Biden’s leaked phone call with then-Afghan president Ghani.

On Tuesday, Reuters obtained leaked transcripts of Biden’s 14-minute, July 23rd call with Ashraf Ghani – the recently departed president of Afghanistan – before the Taliban completed their overthrow of the country.

Reuters obtained the transcripts and audio of Biden’s last phone call to Ghani – Intel is turning on Biden and leaking to the media.

Biden pressured Ghani to lie about the Taliban’s advances to downplay the crisis unfolding to ‘change perception’ about the terrorist faction’s gains in the region.

 “I need not tell you the perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things are not going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban,” Biden said, according to Reuters. “And there is a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.”

Biden told Ghani that if Afghanistan’s prominent political figures were to give a press conference together, backing a new military strategy, “that will change perception, and that will change an awful lot I think.” – Reuters added.

Fox News reporter Jacqui Heinrich asked Psaki about the leaked transcript and audio to Reuters.

“It’s pretty clear…I’m not going to go into details of a private conversation,” Psaki said.

All of a sudden “private” conversations a US president has with a foreign head of state isn’t fair game.

Trump was impeached after a fully lawful, private conversation he had with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky was leaked to the media.

But we aren’t allowed to ask questions about Biden’s phone call with Ghani.
