Psaki Argues with Reporter, Refuses to Answer Which Military Advisor Told Joe Biden to withdraw From Afghanistan (VIDEO)

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday sparred with several reporters asking why Joe Biden didn’t listen to his military advisors warning against his Afghanistan withdrawal timeline.

Commander of U.S. Central Command Gen. Kenneth McKenzie and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley on Tuesday testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee about Biden’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal.

Both McKenzie and Milley confirmed, under oath, that they recommended against Joe Biden’s withdrawal timeline and warned of impending collapse of the Afghan government.

Their statements contradict Joe Biden’s previous claims that no one told him at least 2,500 troops should stay in Afghanistan.

Joe Biden told Democrat operative George Stephanopoulos that not every military advisor told him to leave troops: “It was split,” said Biden.

Psaki parroted this on Tuesday so White House reporters pressed her and asked which military advisor actually told Joe Biden to withdraw all troops while Americans were still in Afghanistan.

“You are saying here that military advisors to the president said it was okay to pull all the troops out, that it would be fine?” a reporter asked Psaki.

As usual, Psaki shifted the narrative and refused to give a straight answer.

Another reporter asked Psaki what Joe Biden meant by his Afghanistan advice was “split”?

Psaki couldn’t back up the claim and talked down to the reporter, “They’re private conversations.”
