At a glance

  • The job of defending President Joe Biden against charges of hypocrisy fell to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, who was grilled in her press briefing on why the White House waited nearly a month to reveal there were additional classified documents in the president’s private possession.
  • Jean-Pierre was unusually condescending, even by her standards, under the media’s interrogation, claiming the administration has been transparent in the days since the scandal broke.
  • The facts say otherwise. Biden, Jean-Pierre and other officials had been asked in the preceding days about the matter, including if there were other classified documents in the president’s personal possession. But neither the president, Jean-Pierre nor other officials disclosed the Wilmington documents.
