Sanders Doubles Down On Comey Comments To Fox News

"Sarah plays a unsafe game in that room, and so has Sean", she said, referring to Sanders' predecessor Sean Spicer. Like maybe she's born with it, maybe it's lies.

"The game is risky because she is lying to the American public". Spinning is to be expected, since being a press secretary is all about selling the administration's position. She lies the way that Steph Curry shoots a basketball, unencumbered by second thoughts, as effortless and natural as blinking.

Mueller wrote in his report that Sanders spoke to Trump following the briefing, and that the president praised her work "and did not point out any inaccuracies in her comments". Sanders admitted that her claims on Comey's firing "were not founded on anything". When met with skepticism, she repeated this utterly false claim, elaborating as she went, multiple times.

Sanders first made the comment about Comey on May 10, 2017, the day after he was sacked, telling reporters, "I think most of America had decided on their own that Director Comey was not the person that should be leading the Federal Bureau of Investigation, as evidenced by the numerous comments that we've seen from Democrat members in the House and Senate, Republican members, members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and people across the board". What we regular folk might call a lie.

She lied to the press corps during a May 10, 2017 press briefing, in which she defended President Donald Trump's decision to terminate Comey based on low morale within the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

"Sanders told this Office that her reference to hearing from "countless members of the FBI" was a "slip of the tongue.' She also recalled that her statement in a separate press interview that rank-and-file Federal Bureau of Investigation agents had lost confidence in Comey was a comment she made 'in the heat of the moment" that was not based on anything". In May 2017, after Trump learned from his then Attorney General Sessions about the special counsel probe, the President, the report revealed, "slumped back in his chair and said, 'Oh my God".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders answers reporters' questions during a news conference in the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House October 30, 2017 in Washington, DC.

When a reporter suggested that Comey enjoyed wide support within the FBI, Sanders said: "Look, we've heard from countless members of the FBI that say very different things". But the example laid bare in Mueller's report - when she was still a deputy press secretary - is striking because Sanders fessed up to it. She also recalled that her statement in a separate press interview that rank-and-file Federal Bureau of Investigation agents had lost confidence in Comey was a comment she made "in the heat of the moment" that was not founded on anything.

Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr appeared to brief the White House counsel's office about the targets of the FBI's Russian Federation investigation in March 2017, special counsel Robert Mueller's report says. By Vox's count, Mueller's team notes at least seven instances in which Sanders or her predecessor Sean Spicer presented incorrect information as fact or otherwise misled the public. It's really something to watch her lying in the video above with such animal certainty. The Mueller report washed its hands of the issue.
