Following New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s sexual harassment allegation report, New York Post reporter Steven Nelson on Wednesday asked White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki about consideration of an independent investigation into President Biden’s various sexual harassment allegations:
“President Biden was accused by female Secret Service agents of skinny dipping in front of them, offending them, according to former Washington Post reporter Ronald Kessler, who’s an author as well. His former Senate aide Tara Reade accused him of sexual assault. The Washington Post and the New York Times published multiple accounts of women who objected to the way President Biden touched them. Should there be an independent investigation of allegations into the President as there was into Governor Cuomo?”
To which Jen Psaki responded with a very weird answer, completely avoiding the original question and quickly moving on for a new question to change the topic:
“Well, first I would say the president has been clear and outspoken about the importance of women being respected and having their voices heard and being allowed to tell their stories and people treating them with respect. That has long been his policy, continues to be his policy.
That–those were–that was heavily litigated during the campaign. I understand you’re eager to come back to it but I don’t have anything further other than to repeat that he has called for the governor to resign”
