“It’s not a hypothetical question. There’s an investigation ongoing,” The reporter replied. “Will the president speak to investigators?”

“But we — but here’s the thing: They were transparent,” Jean-Pierre claimed.

“But not to the American people,” The reporter was pushed back.

“There was — there was transparency in doing what you’re supposed to do when these — when these items were discovered,” Jean-Pierre responded.
