On Saturday, Fox News Host Kayleigh McEnany revealed explosive allegations against President Joe Biden that were buried in a New York Times article.

As former President Donald Trump faces a third indictment at the hands of special counsel Jack Smith, both Biden and White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre continue to insist that the indictments are being conducted “independently” and without political bias or pressure. 

However, McEnany discovered that this may not be the case. An article from the New York Times, published in April 2022, reveals that Biden may have been pushing for Trump to be prosecuted over the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot. 

“So get this, Joe Biden repeatedly refuses to comment on the Trump indictments, he insists that he has an entirely independent DOJ,” McEnany’s segment began. “Remember this?”

McEnany then pulled up a clip from a previous press conference with Biden, in which a reporter asks, “Mr. President, what do you say to Americans to convince them that they should trust the independence and fairness of the justice department that your predecessor Donald Trump repeatedly attacks?”

“Because you notice, I have never once, not one single time, suggested to the Justice department what they should do or not do, whether to bring a charge or not bring a charge,” Biden replies. “I’m honest.”

McEnany continues, bringing up an article from the New York Times titled, “Biden’s response to Trump’s Indictment: 4 ways to say no comment.” In it, a passage about Biden is buried “14 paragraphs down,” which states that Biden pushed for Trump to be indicted.

The paragraph reads, “The attorney general’s deliberative approach has come to frustrate Democratic allies of the White House and, at times, President Biden himself. As recently as late last year, Mr. Biden confided to his inner circle that he believed former President Donald J. Trump was a threat to democracy and should be prosecuted, according to two people familiar with his comments. And while the president has never communicated his frustrations directly to Mr. Garland, he has said privately that he wanted Mr. Garland to act less like a ponderous judge and more like a prosecutor who is willing to take decisive action over the events of Jan. 6.”

“That is stunning,” McEnany said.” Biden privately told aides that Trump should be prosecuted for January 6, and that he wanted Merrick Garland to take decisive action? That is an explosive allegation buried in the New York Times.”

McEnany then pointed out that New York Times reporters “are quick to brag when their reporting is confirmed by a Jack Smith indictment. All you gotta do is go look at their twitter feeds.” 

She then asked, “Why are they radio silent about their own reporting that Joe Biden wanted to see a January 6 indictment of his chief political rival? Why aren’t they following up on this? and where is the press? Has Karine Jean-Pierre been asked about this? Nope. Has Joe Biden? No he hasn’t. Where is the so-called adversarial press pursuing this explosive lead? They aren’t doing it.”

Following the raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence by the FBI in August 2022, the New York Times editorial board urged for Garland to indict Trump, saying “If Attorney General Merrick Garland and his staff conclude that there is sufficient evidence to establish Mr. Trump’s guilt on a serious charge in a court of law, then they must seek an indictment too.”

“If Mr. Garland decides to pursue prosecution, a message that the Justice Department must send early and often is that even if Mr. Trump genuinely believed, as he claimed, that the election had been marred by fraud, his schemes to interfere in the certification of the vote would still be crimes,” they continued. “And even though Mr. Trump’s efforts failed, these efforts would still be crimes. More than 850 other Americans have already been charged with crimes for their roles in the Capitol attack. Well-meaning intentions did not shield them from the consequences of their actions. It would be unjust if Mr. Trump, the man who inspired them, faced no consequences.”
