White House Dodges On The Possibility Of Intervening In 9/11 Lawsuits

During the White House press briefing Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked if the Obama administration would intervene in cases brought forth by 9/11 families.

“A decision like that — I’d actually refer you to the Department Of Justice. It may be a little hard for them to comment on a court case that doesn’t exist yet, but they may be able to discuss what potential role the federal government could play in a legal proceeding like that,” Earnest said in an attempted dodge.

Earnest got pressed again by the reports to answer the question, but Earnest dodged directing the reporter to speak to the Department of Justice.
