Former Obama spokesman Josh Earnest appeared on ABC News this weekend and was asked a direct question about whether or not Obama staffers were involved in any of the recent intel leaks.
He completely dodged the question.
All he gave was a non-answer.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Earnest Dodges Question on Whether Obama Officials Have Been Involved in Intel Leaks
ABC host Martha Raddatz referenced the accusation of President Trump’s deputy assistant, Sebastian Gorka, that former President Barack Obama and his staffers are behind leaks against Trump officials. When confronted with this accusation, Earnest chose not to answer the question, instead praising the intelligence community.
“Martha, what I can tell you is that the men and women of our intelligence community are patriots,” Earnest said. “And these are professionals who have served presidents in both administrations and they took an oath to protect this country and set aside their own political views.”
“And that’s what the men and women of our intelligence community do, and they should be lauded for that,” Earnest added.
That answer doesn’t inspire much confidence.
It is not the answer to the question he was asked.
