Space Force to Continue, White House Confirms

The comedian addressed a Daily Beast report on Wednesday that White House press secretary Jen Psaki's communications team has "probed reporters to see what questions they plan on asking".

The White House said on Tuesday it would look into whether it can make visitor logs from former President Donald Trump's administration public, a move that will be in line with the Biden administration's vow to release its own records.

At the same time, should the US Congress or law enforcement need these records, they might try to get limited access to them.

Psaki has avoided questions before on Greene's history of repugnant comments and conspiracy theories, but the upcoming House vote is likely to prompt a new set of inquiries for the White House's position.

Psaki noted that Congress would have to initiate any dismantling of the force.

In response to Psaki's remarks, Rogers said in a statement, according to Politico, "It's concerning to see the Biden administration's press secretary blatantly diminish an entire branch of our military as the punchline of a joke, which I'm sure China would find amusing".

"We are not revisiting the decision to establish the Space Force". Biden's administration is setting up a task force on family separation that will oversee the process of reuniting separated families.

Psaki's response raised the ire of Republicans, including House Armed Services Committee ranking member Mike Rogers, R-Ala., who criticized it as being disrespectful to members of the service and demanded an apology.

"I am personally interested in space", said Psaki. She said the Defense Department's desire to focus more attention and resources on the security challenges in space has been of bipartisan concern for some time. "I see the value of this force each and every day, and I'm happy to talk to anybody about the great work [it's doing]".

Space experts - including Todd Harrison of the Center for Strategic and International Studies as well as Brian Weeden of the Secure World Foundation - told Defense News in January that the Biden administration will likely retain the Space Force.
