Fourteen months and then go? The White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki is about to quit his job to work for the television network MSNBC, announced Fridaythe Axios websitethe CNN channel and the New York Times

The White House declined to comment on the press secretary’s intentions. Back on stage after her Covid-19 infection, Psaki reached out, assured her she would not announce anything for now and vowed to respect “all ethical rules” in the context of a possible next adventure.

According to Axios, the first to disclose the information, Jen Psaki, 43, is in exclusive negotiations with MSNBC, a progressive broadcaster that has already recruited former spokesman for Vice President Kamala Harris, Symone Sanders. There is currently no name circulating to succeed him. His assistant, Karine Jean-Pierre, has already made several replacements.

Departure after April 30

According to CNN, the spokesperson will remain in office until the highly popular “Dinner of the White House Correspondents’ Association,” which will take place on April 30, after two editions were canceled due to the pandemic.

Jen Psaki had let it be known in the spring of 2021 that she planned to spend another year or so in this extremely exposed position, explaining that she wanted to spend time with her two young children.

The White House spokeswoman joined CNN as a political commentator in 2017, having held various government positions during Obama’s two terms. Then, in November 2020, she joined the so-called “transition” team, which was responsible for preparing for Joe Biden’s arrival at the White House.
