New WH Press Sec Has History as Election Results Truther

Friday marked Jen Psaki's last day as White House Press Secretary, and the Biden Administration has made an interesting choice as her replacement considering many believe a "red wave" is coming during November's midterms—election results denier Karine Jean-Pierre. Jean-Pierre's Twitter history illustrates how she has publicly cast doubt on the victories of former President Donald Trump in 2016 and Georgia Governor Brian Kemp in 2018.

Kylee Zempel wrote for The Federalist:

After Stacey Abrams lost the Georgia gubernatorial election in 2018 and refused to concede to the legitimately elected winner, Brian Kemp, Jean-Pierre came to the defense of a delusional Abrams, writing that “the race was stolen.”

As recently as April 2020, well into Kemp’s tenure as governor, the incoming White House press secretary was still spreading conspiracy theories about the election.

“Reminder: Brian Kemp stole the gubernatorial election from Georgians and Stacey Abrams,” Jean-Pierre wrote.

Jerry Dunleavy added in the Washington Examiner:

She also shared calls for the Electoral College to reject Trump's win. She tweeted out a November 2016 Think Progress article titled “Electoral College must reject Trump unless he sells his business.”

Jean-Pierre sent a tweet in December 2016 that said, “Why I Will Not Cast My Electoral Vote for Donald Trump.” It was the title of a New York Times opinion piece by Republican elector Christopher Suprun, who wrote, “The election of the next president is not yet a done deal. Electors of conscience can still do the right thing for the good of the country.” He cast a vote for then-Ohio Gov. John Kasich later that month.

Jean-Pierre was named senior adviser and national spokeswoman for MoveOn in April 2016. The left-wing group announced in mid-December 2016, “With five days before the Electoral College meets, MoveOn members will mobilize to ask electors to reject Trump because of Russian interference.”

She responded to a Huffington Post tweet that month that quoted former Democratic Sen. Harry Reid saying someone on the Trump campaign "was in on" Russia's election efforts. She tweeted: “[Mike] Flynn, [Paul] Manafort, and The Donald himself (inviting Russia to partake in espionage on our election) #PutinLoveAffair.”

These are just a sampling of her election results-denying tweets sent over the last several years.

Jean-Pierre has also used her platform to fuel the Democrats' Russia collusion conspiracy, elevate baseless sexual misconduct claims against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and suggested Republicans were lying about the teaching of critical race theory in schools. Sounds like she is the perfect spokesperson to push the Biden Administrations's false narratives about its failing policies.
