“Victories from awkward questions” or how Biden’s press secretary ran away from a briefing after a question about Russia

“Victories from awkward questions” or how Biden’s press secretary ran away from a briefing after a question about Russia

The Daily Mail writes that White House press secretary Karin Jean-Pierre was criticized because she abruptly interrupted the briefing and “ran away from her podium” after a question about the investigation of former US President Donald Trump’s “ties” with Russia in the 2016 elections.

At the beginning of the week, a report was published by Special Prosecutor John Durham, which states that neither the US law enforcement agencies nor the intelligence community had any real evidence of Trump’s collusion with Russia in the 2016 elections. Daram concluded that the FBI should never have launched a full investigation into the ties between Trump’s company and Russia and that the intelligence service used “raw, unanalyzed, unconfirmed information” to launch an investigation.

During a briefing at the White House, Jean-Pierre was asked about the reaction of the US administration to the report of the special prosecutor, but the press secretary forwarded it to the US Department of Justice.
