The Media Research Center reports that CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN and MSNBC News devoted zero time to the revelation that President Biden pressured Afghanistan’s President on a phone call to help change the perception that the Taliban might take over, whether it's true or not. As noted here before, if an innocuous phone call from Trump to Ukraine’s President was grounds for impeachment, then this is, to use a phrase Biden should appreciate, impeachment grounds on steroids. Yet the media are doing their best to hide it and protect Biden.
Biden’s spokeswoman Jen Psaki is obviously counting on them to memory-hole Biden’s Afghanistan catastrophe and start acting like palace guards again. You can see here how she tried to spin it away and said she wouldn’t go into the details of a “private conservation.”
Unfortunately for her, the Internet is forever, and conservative commentator Jack Posobiec unearthed an old tweet from Psaki about Trump’s Ukraine phone call:
“It is not just the call transcript. The whistleblower complaint would likely have more details. And we need both. And not just the call.”
Sounds as if she thought that Presidential phone call was public business, and if the President did anything illegal on it, it should be exposed and the President held to account. Gee, I wonder what changed her attitude?...
