President Joe Biden’s new pick to take the place of Jen Psaki as White House Press Secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, is under mounting scrutiny after it was revealed her partner is currently a political reporter for major news network CNN, Radar has learned.
As RadarOnline.com reported, conflict of interest concerns regarding Jean-Pierre and her relationship with Malveaux come just days after Psaki herself came under fire for her own potential conflict of interest violations working as WH press secretary despite eyeing a role at news network MSNBC.
“Ms. Psaki has continued to brief reporters from the White House podium, including reporters from networks she has reportedly been negotiating with, without any apparent restrictions, creating a potential conflict of interest,” government watchdog Protect the Public’s Trust wrote in a complaint sent to the White House just days ago.
“The appearance of a conflict of interest risks further damaging the already low level of public trust in government,” the watchdog added.
