During a briefing on Thursday, CBS News’ Weijia Jiang asked White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki about the video from Iran showing a mock drone assassination of former President Donald Trump.
After bringing up the video, Jiang asked: “Is the intelligence community assessing this threat and working with former President Trump to offer protection of any kind?”
Psaki responded, saying that she wouldn’t “speak to the work of our intelligence community.” However, she added that this kind of “offensive rhetoric and behavior” from Iran’s leader has been seen before.
Jiang pressed again, but Psaki said she didn’t have “more details.”
The reporter did later receive a response from the White House, which condemned the video, noted that intelligence matters aren’t discussed publicly, and added: “The United States will protect and defend its citizens. This includes those serving the United States now and those who formerly served.” (Read more from “Reporter Asks Psaki if Intel Community Working to Protect Trump After Assassination Video” HERE)
