WASHINGTON (Legal Newsline) – Less than a week before the mid-term elections, a White House Press Secretary allegedly disparaged Republican candidates to voters when she criticized GOP leaders during an official briefing.
“Unfortunately, we have seen MAGA Republican officials who don’t believe in the rule of law,” Karine Jean-Pierre said publicly on Nov. 2 from her press room podium. “They refuse to accept the results of free and fair elections, and they fan the flames of political violence through what they praise and what they refuse to condemn.”
Jean-Pierre has been the press secretary since May.
MAGA is a political slogan coined by former U.S. President Donald Trump, Make America Great Again.
“Karine Jean-Pierre took the occasion of a daily briefing to vilify officials of the opposing political party,” said Michael Chamberlain, director of Protect the Public’s Trust (PPT), a government watchdog in D.C. “The comments appear to be clearly designed to influence voters in (this) week’s election.”
