PSAKI: Threats to family were ‘most personally difficult’ part of press secretary’s job


PSAKI said the safety of her two children, aged 4 and 6, remains “a real concern” as some of the messages she received were from “people threatening to come to my house”.

“There have been instances where I have had to share information with [the Secret Service]and I certainly shared information with them,” Psaki said, adding that no threats appeared outside his personal residence.

“Not yet,” Psaki added, although “there is a circulation of my speech among the Republican Party in Arlington right now.” Earlier this week, amid abortion rights protests outside the homes of Supreme Court justices, the Arlington County Republican Committee in Virginia revealed the neighborhood where Psaki lives.

In a statement to POLITICO on Thursday, Arlington’s GOP responded to Psaki’s accusation, saying he “did not publicly release the home address of a Biden administration official, unlike hordes of ‘progressive online activists who broadcast the addresses of Supreme Court justices’.

The Arlington GOP did not immediately respond to a follow-up inquiry into whether it had otherwise circulated Psaki’s address internally or among its members.

After the event featuring Psaki on Thursday, Arlington’s official GOP Twitter account shared several posts criticizing her in reference to the recent Supreme Court protests.

Psaki is expected to leave her post on Friday and will be replaced by her principal deputy, Karine Jean-Pierre, who is set to become the first black and openly gay person to serve as White House press secretary.
