One of the oddest comments to come out of the Free Britney movement actually comes from none other than the White House itself. According to Press Sec Jen Psaki, the White House is exploring options for the federal government to potentially (this may be a longshot) intervene in conservatorships to ensure that people are being treated equitably and fairly. CBS News’ Steve Portnoy asked Psaki during Wednesday ‘s press conference about the conservatorship battle.
“More than a million people in this country, according to reports, are living under a conservatorship or guardianship. The most famous case that’s come to light in the last few weeks is Britney Spears,” Portnoy began. “Members of Congress on both sides of the aisle say that maybe there ought to be some kind of federal law that governs these relationships. Is the White House ― does the White House have a view on this in any way?”
Psaki responded that she’s been “watching this case closely, as a point of privilege.”
“But I will have to talk to our counsel’s office on that, since you’re asking me a good legal question, but I don’t want to speak out of turn here,” she added.
