White House allies rip ‘sloppy’ Huckabee Sanders for ‘dancing around’ Stormy Daniels questions: CNN’s Jim Acosta

Published

on

CNN’s Jim Acosta on Wednesday knocked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders over her refusal to answer questions about Stormy Daniels, who sued Donald Trump on Wednesday over a “hush agreement” she says is invalid.

“It was pretty clear in the White House press briefing that the White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, was struggling to talk about this issue,” Acosta said. “At one point she said the president has made it clear he’s denied these allegations. That has not happened, we have not heard from the president on this issue at any length.”

“White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders volunteered this information that the president won some sort of arbitration proceeding against Stormy Daniels,” Acosta later added. “That is obviously something [Daniels’] attorney is pushing back on.”

“The other thing we should point out: I’ve talked to a couple sources close to the White House in the last several minutes who were essentially scratching their heads and wondering why Sarah Sanders decided to handle the issue that way,” he said. “One source said this issue about arbitration had not come up until she essentially talked about it in the briefing today. It was mentioned in this paperwork yesterday, but the public hadn’t focused on it until Sarah Sanders talked about it in the briefing with reporters.”

“From another source close to the White House this was sloppy on the part of Sarah Sanders,” he continued. “My guess is, the way she danced around these questions today, it’s almost certain she’ll have to answer more of those.”

"As the president of the United States leads a domestic hate movement, the world is watching," he explained.

Hope Hicks to be investigated by House after new documents reveal she may have lied to Congress: report

Published

on

The House Judiciary Committee is investigating President Donald Trump's former White House communications director after new documents cast doubt on whether she told the truth while testifying before Congress.

"Hicks told the committee last month that she was not aware of the hush payment to Stormy Daniels when it was arranged. Today’s docs put her in phone calls with [Michael] Cohen and Trump during the period the payment was arranged, but don’t explicitly say those calls were about the payment," Wall Street Journal White House correspondent Rebecca Ballhaus reported.
