Exclusive: WH press secretary Sarah Sanders interviewed by special counsel’s office
Washington (CNN) — Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team has interviewed White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, she told CNN on Friday.
“The President urged me, like he has everyone in the administration, to fully cooperate with the special counsel. I was happy to voluntarily sit down with them,” Sanders said in response to a question from CNN.
She lied again. (see bolded paragraph below)
The interview is one of the final known interviews by Mueller’s team. It came around the same time as the special counsel interviewed former White House chief of staff John Kelly, well after a number of other senior officials, including former White House communications director Hope Hicks and former press secretary Sean Spicer, were brought in for questioning.
The White House did not immediately agree to grant the special counsel an interview with Sanders, according to one of the sources.
Similarly, as CNN reported in December, White House lawyers initially objected to Mueller’s request to interview Kelly, who ultimately responded to a narrow set of questions from special counsel investigators.
In 2017, Sanders said Trump weighed in on the statement after it was revealed his son, Trump Jr., met with a Russian lawyer in the 2016 meeting.“The statement that Don Jr. issued is true,” Sanders said at the time. “There’s no inaccuracy in the statement. The President weighed in as any father would, based on the limited information that he had.”
May her lies get her into perjury trouble.
And may she suffer as much as she makes so many Americans suffer.
