YIKES! Psaki to Be Investigated? Watchdog Org Has Big News about What’s Coming for Psaki after Her Unethical Comments

Former Press Secretary Jen Psaki may be in trouble after recent comments attacking Fox News.

As a refresher, Psaki had this to say when asked if Peter Doocy is a stupid SOB, “He works for a network that provides people with questions that, nothing personal to any individual including Peter Doocy, but might make anyone sound like a stupid son of a bitch.”

Here’s the DailyWire’s report on the situation:

A watchdog group is demanding the White House, Department of Justice, and Office of Government Ethics probe whether Jen Psaki violated ethical obligations upon being courted to work for MSNBC after her current stint as White House press secretary.

It was reported in April that Psaki plans to leave her role this May for a network television job at MSNBC. The report cited two sources familiar with the matter who are aware of the press secretary telling this to senior White House officials.

“Concerns about conflicts of interest when seeking new employment are not new, and the federal government has strict laws and regulations governing how employees conduct themselves,” Protect the Public’s Trust, a watchdog organization run by retired and former public servants, wrote in a letter sent Monday to the government. “Under federal law, it is a criminal offense punishable by up to five years in prison to willfully participate in any ‘particular matter’ in which an organization an employee is negotiating or has an arrangement regarding future employment has a financial interest.”

In their letter, the group references a podcast appearance Psaki made on April 14. The press secretary was asked about Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy, and responded, “He works for a network that provides people with questions that, nothing personal to any individual including Peter Doocy, but might make anyone sound like a stupid son of a b****.”

The White House has refused to respond after a request to comment.
