During Tuesday’s press briefing at the White House, Press Secretary Jen Psaki took a shot at former President Donald Trump while responding to Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy, who asked multiple questions about the breaking news regarding sexual harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
During the news brief, Psaki noted that President Joe Biden would personally speak to the Cuomo controversy later in the day.
“Does the administration want the Justice Department to initiate a civil rights investigation into these harassment allegations revealed today?” Doocy pressed.
Psaki replied: “We do something new here that feels foreign from the last four years and allow the Justice Department to act independently on investigations.”
Throughout his administration, Trump publicly pressured the Department of Justice to defend him from multiple lawsuits over sexual misconduct.
