The White House won’t explain why disgraced Democratic operative Robert Creamer visited some 342 times, including 47 meetings with President Barack Obama.
“I don’t know if we’ve had the time to go back and look at every individual visit,” explained Deputy White House Press Secretary Eric Schultz in response to questions from reporters about the unusually high number of White House visits. Schultz discussed the issue with reporters on Air Force One on the president’s trip to Florida.
Schultz made the excuse that the White House visitor logs “don’t always reveal real-time information” and that Creamer sometimes attended events with more than 1,000 other people.
“This idea that there were intimate meetings in the Oval Office,” Schultz said, “I don’t think is consistent with where the data is.”
Creamer’s visits to the White House came under scrutiny after he boasted of inciting violence at Trump rallies in undercover videos released by Project Veritas.
Yesterday, White House press secretary Josh Earnest dodged questions about Creamer’s relationship with the president.
“I’m not sure that I can describe it because I’m not sure that there’s much of one,” he said, referring to their relationship.
