The pool reporter who was designated to cover a Joe Biden fundraising call with Wall Street players Thursday evening apparently had an early night.

The NBC News pool reporter said she was able to listen to Biden’s opening remarks but was “quickly kicked off the phone call” once the likely Democrat nominee opened the floor to questions.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The last thing your pooler heard was Biden thanking donors and saying he was “open to questions” before a robotic voice exclaimed “goodbye,” Marianna Sotomayor wrote.

“Tonight’s fundraiser was definitely different than previous ones and the Biden campaign’s @rufusgifford explains it could be the “new format as we enter a new phase of the general election campaign.” He assures transparency “one that vastly exceeds” that of Trump and his campaign,” Sotomayor wrote in a Twitter post.

Washington Post reporter Matt Viser tweeted,  “Biden’s campaign has been quite good about opening fundraisers so the public can get a sense of what he says to wealthy donors Not tonight. @MariannaNBCNews, the pool reporter representing news organizations, was kicked off as he started taking questions from Wall Street donors.”

The Trump campaign pounced, tweeting, “Joe Biden held a virtual video fundraiser tonight with wealthy Wall Street donors. But reporters weren’t allowed to see the video or know the identity of the donors. And the Biden campaign kicked the reporters off the phone before Biden started to answer questions.”
