(Liberty Bell) – A federal judge has given the order for the federal government to hand over an email in which Jen Psaki, the current White House press secretary, actually admits to being dishonest with the media concerning the details of the Iran nuclear deal during the time it was being negotiated by the Obama administration.
A report by BizPacReview has revealed that the order from the judge comes as a response to a lawsuit that was filed by the American Center for Law and Justice which claims that the State Department deleted the admission by Psaki during a press briefing held back in 2013 when she was a spokesperson for the agency.
The watchdog group stated on its own website that it filed its Freedom of Information Act Request over five years.
During an exchange that was focused on the Obama administration’s behind-the-scene talks with Iran, Psaki was asked, “Is it the policy of the State Department, where the preservation or the secrecy of secret negotiations is concerned, to lie in order to achieve that goal?”
“I think there are times where diplomacy needs privacy in order to progress. This is a good example of that,” Psaki replied.
The ACLJ went on to state that this admission by Psaki is tantamount to lying to the general public.
“Despite attempts by the Deep State to try and sweep this one under the rug, the court agreed with our arguments and ordered the Biden State Department to hand over a crucial document for ‘in camera’ review by the judge himself,” the legal group said.
The organization then said that, at the time, it found out the Obama administration was “censoring an official State Department press briefing video to delete an embarrassing admission that the admission lied about its Iran deal negotiations.”
In other words, Obama’s administration “intentionally manipulated the public video record” by deleting the admission out of the public record.
So it’s clear that Psaki thinks it is okay to withhold information from the public, which is what we as decent human beings know as “lying.” Who made her the arbiter of what is and what isn’t important for the American people to know?
It’s disturbing just how deeply ingrained it is in progressives to think they are elites who have the right and authority to tell us what we should and shouldn’t know.
