White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany will lie to the press at around 3 p.m. D.C. time, on Wednesday.
I can assume the briefing will accuse former Obama administration officials of crimes, that will remain unnamed. I can also assume that McEnany will be asked about President Petty’s tweets regarding, Michigan, Nevada, his accusation of murder, and his renewed interest in rescheduling the G7 to an in-person meeting versus the video conference it is currently intended.
Other things likely asked in today’s press event.
According to the article, Dr. Deborah Brix, a coronavirus task force member, has become frustrated with the CDC explaining in recent meetings that she believes the way the CDC gather data is “antiquated, causing inaccurate and delayed numbers on both virus cases and deaths. Birx has expressed her agitation during recent task force meetings, where at least one conversation between her and Redfield has grown heated, according to a source close to the task force.”
One official has pushed “back on the idea that Redfield was in immediate trouble, saying there isn’t an appetite within the administration for any seismic staffing changes while the response to coronavirus was ongoing. However, this official said that ultimately the decision was up to Trump.”
The now-fired State Department inspector general had recently wrapped up an investigation into two other top aides to Mike Pompeo, determining that they had likely failed to report allegations of workplace violence, a person familiar told POLITICO. https://t.co/8bPFDgLXpK— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) May 20, 2020
A person familiar with the matter told Politico that the recently fired State Department Inspector General, Steve Linick, had prior to being fired, “wrapped up an investigation into two other top aides to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, determining that they had likely failed to report allegations of workplace violence.”
From the article:
[Secretary of State Mike] Pompeo’s role in the ouster has come under growing scrutiny, with a slew of sudden reports about ways in which the inspector general was looking into his actions, those of his wife, Susan, as well as some of his aides. In a news conference Wednesday, Pompeo decried many of the allegations as “crazy.”Politico. 05/20/2020.
I believe at some point someone will mention the coronavirus and McEnany will praise President Jackass for his leadership fails, while making doe eyes at the camera.
The White House.
