White House staff and President Joe Biden appeared to contradict one another over Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation hearings.
During a press conference on Monday, Biden was asked whether he watched the hearings to which he said he did not. His response came despite the White House saying earlier that Biden was following confirmation hearings very closely.
The Republican National Committee is questioning this while suggesting either Biden or his staffers are lying. The White House has yet to comment on the matter.
