Twitter has made a post where a White House spokesman has called for Trump’s victory to be overturned.
White House Press Secretary Jane Sackie has spent some of her last days in office trying to explain something to her successor, whose history of claiming the election was rigged may seem out of step with an administration that has marked the question of the outcome of the vote. . “A threat to democracy.”
The issue became bubbling this week, when old Twitter posts were published where incoming press secretary Karin Jean-Pierre argued that the 2016 presidential election and the 2018 Georgia governorate race were “Steal” By Republican winners. He also used a hashtag “# Unprecedented” In the case of President-elect Donald Trump in 2016, and he campaigned for an attempt to block the certification of his victory by denying Trump the winning electoral votes.
Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online. “A threat to democracy.” And the election-fraud protest that turned into a violent riot at the U.S. Capitol in January 2021 – seeking to block Biden’s credentials – “The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.” According to the President.
But when confronted about Jean-Pierre’s tweet, Saki gave his successor a pass. Jean-Pierre “Confirmed that Donald Trump won in 2016,” Saki told Mediaite on Friday. “Like many of us, Karin was concerned about the unanimous search by the US intelligence community for Russia’s intervention in order to help Trump. But he has won. “

Jean-Pierre claims Georgia Governor Brian Kemp stole his victory in 2018, Saki says. “We all agree that Georgia’s 2018 election is over. And we’re all concerned about voter repression, including the president. Kemp won and he saw the tweet as a simplification of the problem.
Saki also defended Jean-Pierre’s 2020 attack on Fox News, where the veteran Democrat accused the network. “Racist” – A comment that raises the question of whether he will be able to deal fairly with the White House Press Corps. “This is a one-year-old clip of Karin, referring to an opinion host – not a reporter – when he was not in government and not speaking for the president.” Saki said.
Then again, Sakio defended Biden when the president suggested earlier this year that the midterm elections – which many expect to be bad for Democrats – “Could easily be invalid.” The press secretary downplayed the skepticism about the election, citing Biden’s comments. “Well, voters should keep their eyes and ears open and their eyes clear, and the other night the president found that people were trying to make it harder for them to vote.”
At least as recently as June 2019, Jean-Pierre was still inspiring Trump’s 2020 victory, promoting a claim that Republicans “Didn’t actually win the election” And was “Keep it in office because the Russians intervened.” The claim comes more than two months after Special Counsel Robert Mueller released a report that found no evidence of collusion between the Russian and Trump campaigns. Prior to that, he had used hashtags repeatedly “#Mullartime,” Trump’s critics point to the dire consequences that the special counsel expected.
