During a White House press briefing, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refused to answer if the Biden administration was “weaponizing the FBI” against Republicans after being questioned on the FBI’s unprecedented and controversial raid on former President Donald Trump’s home.
“Does the president still want to think that he would be very fortunate to run against Trump in 2024 like he has said before?” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked, according to Mediate.
“I’m not going to comment,” Jean-Pierre responded. “All I can tell you, Peter, is that the president plans to run in 2024.”
Doocy then asked if the Biden administration is concerned the FBI’s raid will be viewed as politically motivated.
“Is there a concern here that if you guys don’t say more, then these Republicans who are accusing this White House of weaponizing the Justice Department, weaponizing the FBI, that that’s gonna become the public sentiment, if you guys don’t say once and for all, ‘We are not doing this?’” Doocy asked.
“First of all, we’re just not going to comment under the Department of Justice investigation,” Jean-Pierre responded.
“Ok, I’ll make it easier,” Doocy said.
“I’m not going to comment on that,” Jean-Pierre said.
“Is this White House weaponizing the Justice Department and the FBI against political opponents?” Doocy asked directly.
“The president has been very clear from before he was elected, very clear on this. Hold on. Throughout his time–” Jean-Pierre dodged.
“I heard the quote. We will be playing the quote tonight at six o’clock. Is this administration weaponizing the Justice Department and the FBI against political opponents?” Doocy asked.
“Peter, the president believes in the rule of law. The president believes in the independence of the Department of Justice–” Jean-Pierre dodged again.
“That’s a yes or no. Is the White House––” Doocy stated.
“No, it’s a yes or no for you,” Jean-Pierre interjected, saying that it is more complicated than “yes or no” as to whether the Biden administration is “weaponizing the FBI.”
“I’m answering the question,” Jean-Pierre continued. “You may not like it, but I’m answering the question and I’m telling you that we are not going to comment on a criminal investigation. The president has been very clear. I laid out what his thoughts were back on January 7 in 2021 about how he saw the Department of Justice. I’m just going to leave it there. We are not going to comment from here from this White House on a criminal investigation that is currently happening.”
