A government watchdog is calling for an ethics investigation into White House press secretary Jen Psaki after she publicly criticized Fox News ahead of her expected departure for competing network MSNBC.
Last week, Psaki was asked during an appearance on the “Pod Save America” podcast whether Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy “is a stupid son of a b—h” or if he “just plays one on TV,” a reference to President Joe Biden’s hot-mic moment from earlier this year in which he said Doocy was a “stupid son of a b—h.”
Now, the watchdog group Protect the Public’s Trust is asking the Office of Government Ethics and the Department of Justice to launch an investigation into Psaki over her comments, given that she is reportedly planning to soon leave her current position for a media role with MSNBC.
