For the second time this week the White House dodged questions about Special Counsel John Durham's ongoing investigation, which reaches into President Joe Biden's administration.
On Monday Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked about new revelations from a Durham filing that show personal residence servers belonging to President Donald Trump and the White House were monitored.
"Lawyers for the Clinton campaign paid a technology company to 'infiltrate' servers belonging to Trump Tower, and later the White House, in order to establish an 'inference' and 'narrative' to bring to government agencies linking Donald Trump to Russia, a filing from Special Counsel John Durham found," Fox News reports. "Durham filed a motion on Feb. 11 focused on potential conflicts of interest related to the representation of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann, who has been charged with making a false statement to a federal agent. Sussmann has pleaded not guilty."
Jean-Pierre refused to answer and referred questions to the Department of Justice.

Before voters hit the polls in November 2016, the Clinton campaign sent out the false allegation that the Trump campaign was somehow connected to or colluding with the Russian government to win the election.

After Trump won, Clinton Campaign official Jake Sullivan continued to push the lie in order to delegitimize Trump's presidency.

Sullivan is now President Biden's National Security Advisor and is referenced in a number of Durham indictments.
