Sarah Sanders: Calls for Trump's Impeachment 'Simply Sad'

Adjust Comment Print

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said reporter April Ryan hit a "new low" by calling for her to be fired and decapitated.

The report states that then-FBI Director James Comey briefed the Gang of Eight - the Intelligence Committee and congressional leaders from both parties - about the investigation on March 9, 2017, before Comey revealed its existence publicly at a House hearing on March 20, 2017.

A section of the report that references Comey's firing by Trump notes Sanders telling reporters that the White House had heard from "countless" FBI agents who had lost confidence in Comey's ability to lead the bureau.

According to Mueller's report, Sanders spoke with Trump after the press briefing, and Trump "told her she did a good job and did not point out any inaccuracies in her comments". The report also says she acknowledged the comment "was not founded on anything". In the heat of the moment, in the slip of the tongue, she is a robotic liar. She now holds occasional briefings, presumably on days when the White House feels it will be advantageous. They can't trust what's said from the President's mouthpiece-spokesperson from the people's house.

"However, any conversations between the two would have been in reference to the need for White House personnel to voluntarily comply with the Senate Intelligence Committee's Russian Federation investigation", she said.

There have been months of discussion as to whether the firing of FBI Director James Comey in May 2017 was obstruction of justice.

Sanders has been accused of deceptive practices many times during her almost two-year-long stint as press secretary.

Huckabee appeared to take issue with Ryan's phrasing and, on Friday, called on the White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) to revoke Ryan's press credentials.

Monday, MSNBC's "Morning Joe" hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski urged fellow members of the media to quit putting White House staff members like Sarah Sanders, Kellyanne Conway and Rudy Giuliani on television because they "repeatedly lie". "They have the option, they could be working with the president to solve some of the big problems", Sanders said.

"I can speak to my own personal experience", Sanders told the White House press. "I think it just once again proves why this journalist isn't taken seriously". "This decision is meant to bring Iran's oil exports to zero, denying the regime its principal source of revenue", Sanders said.

Wallace unleashed on senior aide Kellyanne Conway and press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders for placing a greater importance on politics than their patriotic obligation to the American people.
