There are reports that Jennifer Rene Psaki, the 43-year-old Biden Administration Press Secretary, will be leaving her current post for an MSNBC job.
At a recent press briefing, reporters asked her whether there was any truth to the report.
Pressed by CBS News’ Ed O’Keefe on the matter, Psaki said, “Well, you can’t get rid of me yet, Ed. I have nothing to confirm about my length of public service or planned service or anything about consideration about next plans.”
“I’m very happy to be standing with all of you here today after it felt like a never-ending, endless time in my basement, quarantining away from my family.
Believe it or not, I missed you all a lot,” she added.
She said further that she is focused on her job and trying to perform at her best.
“My focus every day continues to be speaking on behalf of the President; answering your questions, as tough as they may be at many times, as difficult as they may be to answer at many times. And I hope that I meet my own bar of treating everybody with fairness and being equitable.”
When asked if it was ethical to continue conducting her job while negotiating for a media job, Psaki said, “I have always gone over and above the stringent ethical and legal requirements of the Biden administration. And I take that very seriously. And, as a standard for every employee of the White House, I have received rigorous ethics counseling, including as it relates to any future employment. I’ve complied with all ethics requirements and gone beyond and taken steps to recuse myself from decisions as appropriate.”
She asked the White House correspondents to “judge me for my record.”
