WH Press Secretary Jen Psaki Pushed Russia Collusion Hoax, Resurfaced Tweets Show
Tweets included claims that 'Trump supporters are the worst'
Joe Biden’s White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki called Trump supporters "the worst" and pushed the now-debunked Russia collusion hoax, newly resurfaced tweets show.
Conservative commentator Jack Posobiec shared a series of Psaki’s tweets, some as recent as 2020.
In a tweet from February last year, Psaki responded to a tweet she shared from her personal account, claiming “Trump supporters are the worst no [question].”
In 2017, Psaki wrote:
“Important to remember Flynn is the tip of the iceberg."
"Russia ties with Trump team, and interest in creating chaos in US are ongoing.”
Later in the same year, Psaki wrote:
“Comey and Russia was a factor."
"It was not the only factor. Masogyny [sic] is real."
"[U]nderrated-Dems loss of connection with people struggling.”
Donald Trump pardoned his former National Security Advisor, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Ret.), in November 2020.
In 2017, Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.
He later withdrew his plea as exculpatory evidence emerged.
In another tweet from 2020, Psaki referred to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) as “Lady G” after he questioned Former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates during her testimony on the Trump-Russia investigation.
“Only in 2020 does #LadyG get to push a bunch of debunked conspiracy theories while questioning @SallyQYates (aka an American hero),” Psaki wrote.
Before becoming Biden’s White House press secretary, Psaki served in communications under President Barack Obama.
Neon Nette reported on Tuesday that Biden's communications department asked reporters to submit their questions in advance of Jen Psaki's daily briefings.
The White House has since been accused of trying to avoid difficult questions.
The issue was discussed during a White House Correspondents Association meeting last Friday.
