White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki added a dramatic dimension to the administration’s decision to oust about a dozen Trump holdovers from various advisory boards, including the likes of Kellyanne Conway and Sean Spicer.

On Wednesday, Psaki confirmed the Biden administration’s decision to seek the ouster of 11th-hour Trump appointees, which prompted loud objections and threats of legal action. On Thursday morning, a source familiar with the action told Mediaite that all of the appointees in question had either resigned or been fired as of 6 p.m. Wednesday night.

And when Psaki was asked about the purge on Thursday morning’s edition of CNN’s New Day, she offered an additional consideration to those she raised at Wednesday’s briefing.
