Sarah Sanders tells CNN’s Chris Cuomo she’s ‘very comfortable’ with her credibility and is ‘an honest person’

Published

on

White House Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has come under heat this week for dodging reporters questions.

Sanders sat down with CNN’s Chris Cuomo to air her side of the story. She spent her interview segment critiquing reporters and Democrats. During her interview she mainly relied on her same response she gives reporters during the press briefings.

“I answered this question on Monday. I answered it on Tuesday, and I’m going to answer it the same way today, and you’re probably not going to like it anymore,” Sanders said. “But this is a legal matter and the appropriate individuals to answer questions on a legal matter are the outside counsel. And I would direct you to them.”

She said that just because people don’t like the answer does not mean she will change her answers.

“I answered it and you don’t like the answer. There’s a big difference between me answering it and you not liking the answer.”

Sanders went into a rant about how she is an “honest” person. After that, Sanders said that Democrats will have to make a choice between America and President Trump.

“The Democrats no longer have a message… Democrats are going to have to decide at some point… that they hate this President more than they love this country.”

Sanders then said she wasn’t worried about credibility.

“I’m very comfortable with my credibility, and the fact that I think by sitting here right now and taking questions from you shows the type of person I am. It shows my effort to provide information. And frankly, to be in an environment that’s not exactly friendly, that’s not exactly one that I think a lot of people in my position would come and sit in. And I think that speaks a lot to my credibility,” she said.

Fifth NRA board member resigns over ongoing power struggle with embattled CEO Wayne LaPierre

Published

Another member of the National Rifle Association's board of directors has resigned -- marking the fifth high-profile departure in recent weeks from the powerful gun manufacturer lobbying group.

Four other board members have resigned from the NRA's board of directors since Aug. 1, when two quit after complaining they had been sidelined for raising questions about runaway spending and mismanagement by top executives.

Trump’s fantasy about Russia investigators going to prison is doomed to flop: legal experts

Published

on

The investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election has largely wrapped up, and even though it did not exonerate President Donald Trump, he and his allies seem convinced not only that it has, but that the whole investigation was illegitimate and the people who carried it out are part of a so-called "Deep State" that is going to be put behind bars any day now.

A new analysis by Politico published on Tuesday walks through how Trump and many of his allies, including Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, and right-wing ex-prosecutor Joe DiGenova, are expecting a number of people, like former FBI Director James Comey and fired federal agent Peter Strzok, will be found guilty of criminal acts after internal investigations conducted by Inspector General Michael Horowitz and U.S. Attorney John Durham. Trump has even called it "treason."

Trump’s ability to lie to his fans may soon face its greatest test

Published

on

Donald Trump's propaganda apparatus is mighty — much more resilient and effective than any of his business endeavors ever were in the decades before he ran for president. While most Americans haven't bought into Trump's lies — which are up to an average of 13 a day — his base of supporters, who have way more power, in our undemocratic system, than their actual numbers justify, gobble up every ridiculous assertion emanating from the Oval Office.
