The New York Post was reportedly denied press credentials for a White House event that took place on Monday, just days ahead of a possible indictment for President Joe Biden’s embattled son Hunter Biden.
The Post reported early Monday that the outlet had been told via email — just hours ahead of President Biden’s only public event for the day – that the White House would not “be able to accommodate” their request for press credentials.
“We are unable to accommodate your credential request to attend the Investing in Airline Accountability Remarks on 5/8. The remarks will be live-streamed and can be viewed at WH.gov. Thank you for understanding. We will let you know if a credential becomes available,” the email read.
According to the Post’s report, of some 50 seats that had been reserved for reporters, 20 remained empty throughout the president’s remarks — but the outlet also noted that the email declining their request for credentials did not state that limited space was the reason for the rejection.
The event, which took place in the White House-adjacent Eisenhower Executive Office Building, addressed federal airline policies and also included remarks from Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.
Biden’s remarks come just two weeks after an April 26th meeting between the Justice Department and Hunter Biden’s legal team – a move that some think could signal that the DOJ is nearing a decision on whether or not to indict the president’s son.
President Biden has had to field a growing number of questions about Hunter’s foreign business dealings — and his own alleged involvement in both his son’s business relationships and, according to a whistleblower complaint, a possible money-for-policy arrangement of his own.
Based on whistleblower testimony, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) has set a press conference for the middle of the week — and has urged the DOJ to wait until after that to make a final decision regarding a possible indictment.
“My message to the Department of Justice is very loud and clear: Do not indict Hunter Biden before Wednesday,” he told “Sunday Morning Futures” host Maria Bartiromo over the weekend.
