Protect the Public’s Trust (PPT), a federal ethics watchdog group, has requested an investigation into White House press secretary Jen Psaki over possible ethics violations regarding her negotiations with establishment media outlets while she remains in the administration giving regular briefs.
The federal ethics watchdog sent a letter to the White House counsel Dana Remus, the Office of Government Ethics Director Emery Rounds III, and Public Integrity Section Department of Justice chief Corey Amundson, requesting the investigation.
“Despite the reporting and recusal requirements federal employees must comply with while in negotiations for outside employment as well as her own statements regarding those obligations,” the watchdog explained, “Psaki does not appear to have altered her behavior with respect to either her prospective employer or its competitors.”
