During her most recent White House press conference, Press Secretary Jen Psaki declined to take any questions from reporters regarding Special Counsel John Durham’s findings, repeatedly kicking the can down the road to the Department of Justice (DOJ) whenever asked. Earlier in the week, Karine Jean-Pierre also refused to respond to questions from reporters relating to the Durham probe, again directing them to the DOJ for answers.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Biden Administration officials, including White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki and Principal Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, repeatedly dodged questions at press conferences this week regarding the recent allegations coming out of the ongoing probe of Special Counsel John Durham into the origins of the Trump/Russia investigation.
In a court filing earlier this week, Durham accused the campaign of Hillary Clinton of paying a technology firm to “infiltrate” Trump Tower and White House servers in an attempt to link former President Donald Trump to sources in Russia during the 2016 race for the White House.

At one point, a reporter inquired if Psaki could confirm that the White House’s server data was currently secure, so which she responded,
“I know you asked my colleague a few questions about this the other day, but I would point you with any questions about this to the Department of Justice.”

In response to a follow-up by the same reporter, who asked if “monitoring internet traffic” – which is how Durham described the information that was obtained by the firm allegedly hired by Clinton to hack White House servers – could be considered the same as “spying,” again Psaki deferred to the DOJ.
“Again, I would point you to the Department of Justice,” she said.
Earlier in the week, Karine Jean-Pierre also refused to respond to questions from reporters relating to the Durham probe, again directing them to the DOJ for answers.
When asked if President Biden has “any concern” about presidential candidates hiring computer experts to hack competitors “for the goal of creating a narrative,” – and if such actions constituted “spying” – Jean-Pierre replied,
“That’s something I can’t speak to from this podium, so I refer you to the Department of Justice.”
Following Durham’s court filing earlier this week, it was also revealed that President Biden’s 2020 campaign had engaged the services of the same computer firm that the Clinton campaign did in 2016 – Neustar Information Services – for “accounting and compliance work.”
Remember. The #Durham findings are not just about Hillary Clinton.
Biden White House should have a lot to say about the Durham findings too:

Biden campaign paid the tech firm at center of Durham investigation
Biden’s campaign is one of only two to have ever paid NEUSTAR, per FEC records. The other? Hillary Clinton’s @FreeBeacon

“The Biden and Clinton campaigns are the only two presidential committees to have ever paid Neustar… but the DCCC also hired the firm before the 2018 midterms.”
Damning new evidence surfaces Biden *also* spied on Trump.🔻https://t.co/4p8HLzOwgd
