This administration continues to be defiant in explaining why Joe Biden had classified documents in four different locations.
His officials often do not comment, such as Karine Jean-Pierre giving the media the brushoff every day at White House press briefings.
Or, in the case of Ian Sams, the media is being told that Biden’s camp says there is nothing to see here, so just shut up and move on.
We have seen KJP and Biden lose their tempers on this, but now we can add spokesperson Ian Sams to that group.
Stop Looking for Attention
You know you have this administration over a barrel when they accuse you of just trying to grab a headline, which is what Sams said when he did a conference call with the media to discuss the classified documents found at Biden’s home and office.
Sams told the media, “I have certainly endeavored to give all of you in the press corps access to the information that you need. I’ve taken your questions a couple of times, I made myself available for media interviews.
“In every presidency, you know, there are many people out there in the media who’s sort of trying to stir up controversy to get attention or time on camera.”
Oh, so after a major investigation took place into Donald Trump for the same violation, this is now just the media looking for headlines?
Sams addressed the media again on Monday with a similar tone and attitude, stating, “We’ve tried to give you guys public information as it’s appropriate, … But I think that the American people see it for what it is, which is the president respecting the appropriate entity who’s doing an investigation and ensuring that they have the independence they need to conduct that investigation.”
Well, Mr. Sams, you are actually wrong, because polling shows that the overwhelming majority of Americans believe that Biden mishandled the documents and are following this story very closely.
What they are seeing is a White House that promised transparency but refuses to tell the public what it wants and should know.
To that point, during his last call, Sams refused to give details such as exactly where the documents were found, how many pages, and a rough idea as to the subject matter of the documents.
