‘It’s certainly not up to a press secretary to spoon out what they believe we deserve to know’
A court has ordered the federal government to hand over for review an email by Jennifer Psaki regarding secret Obama-Biden administration meetings with Iran.
The order came in a lawsuit by the American Center for Law and Justice, which contends the State Department deleted an embarrassing admission in a 2013 press briefing video that the administration lied about its Iran negotiations.

The ruling centers on an email by Psaki, who now is White House secretary, which the ACLJ claims is evidence that she lied during the briefing, when she was serving as the State Department spokeswoman.
In an exchange about the Obama administration’s secret negotiations with Iran, she was asked, “Is it the policy of the State Department, where the preservation or the secrecy of secret negotiations is concerned, to lie in order to achieve that goal?”
Psaki replied: “I think there are times where diplomacy needs privacy in order to progress. This is a good example of that.”
The ACLJ filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit to obtain the email.
“Despite attempts by the Deep State to try and sweep this one under the rug, the court agreed with our arguments and ordered the Biden State Department to hand over a crucial document for ‘in camera’ review by the judge himself,” the ACLJ said.
The complaint was filed five years ago.
The ACLJ said it caught the Obama-Biden administration at the time “censoring an official State Department press briefing video to delete an embarrassing admission that the admission lied about its Iran deal negotiations.”
The Obama-Biden team “intentionally manipulated the public video record” by deleting the incriminating portion.
The administration first claimed it was a “glitch” but later admitted it was done deliberately.
