An ethics group is complaining to the White House about recent comments press secretary Jen Psaki has made about a Fox News correspondent and reports of her upcoming departure from the administration to work for another network.
“The appearance of a conflict of interest risks further damaging the already low level of public trust in government,” the letter read. “In order to restore public trust and live up to Ms. Psaki’s own commitment to transparency and engagement, we are calling upon you to investigate whether Ms. Psaki violated her ethical duties, either in her remarks regarding Fox News or in her conduct while negotiating non-federal employment more generally.”
