White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki could be in hot water now that a watchdog group believes she has crossed the line.
The press secretary has reportedly been in negotiations with two networks, CNN and MSNBC, and ultimately decided on going to MSNBC.
As she was in negotiations, and before actually beginning work for MSNBC, she has bashed one of their competitors on Fox News, all while being an official agent of the federal government.
This has gotten the attention of the watchdog group Protect the People’s Trust.
“Today, federal ethics watchdog Protect the Public’s Trust requested an investigation into possible ethics violations by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki. Ms. Psaki’s statements and actions in the wake of widespread media reporting that she has been in negotiations to leave federal service for a role with a major media outlet appear inconsistent with her own promise to set ‘an example of engagement and transparency,’” the group said in a press release.
