GIBBS ON SESTAK JOB OFFER: ‘I’D HAVE TO ASK COUNSEL FOR A BETTER ANSWER ON THAT’!

Press Secretary Robert Gibbs tries to answer the White House Press Corps questions on why it took 3 months for the White House to issue a memo on the Sestak job offer.

A reporter asked Gibbs why he wouldn’t discuss the offer over many months, even as the administration contended that nothing inappropriate had taken place. “I’d have to ask counsel for a better answer,” Gibbs said.

The press secretary also demurred on whether offers made to Sestak in June and July of 2009 — as mentioned in the memo of explanation offered by White House counsel Robert Bauer — were made by former President Bill Clinton and whether there were multiple approaches to Sestak, as opposed to the single phone call he described. “Whatever’s in the memo is accurate,” Gibbs said, adding that he would “check.”
