Sean Spicer said White House press secretary Jen Psaki’s reported negotiations with MSNBC from the podium are “unethical and wrong.”
Psaki will leave her current position on Friday, May 13, and reportedly host a show on NBCUniversal’s streaming platform, Peacock, and regularly appear on the MSNBC’s programming, though she has not yet announced her official plans. Concerns arose about the ethics of negotiating her future employment from the podium.
Protect the Public’s Trust, a group consisting of retired and former public servants, urged the Office of Government Ethics and the Department of Justice to conduct an investigation into Psaki’s alleged “conflict of interest” in an April 19 letter. The group demanded that any “recusals and negotiations” related to her potential employment be publicly released.
