White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday claimed during an interview with CNN’s John Berman that the arrest and indictment of longtime Trump ally Roger Stone shouldn’t be seen as incriminating toward President Donald Trump.
Even though Stone was indicted for lying about efforts to help Trump’s campaign by getting into contact with WikiLeaks, Sanders said that the arrest “has nothing to do with the president.”
Sanders also tried to deflect questions of whether getting a heads-up about future WikiLeaks releases constituted trying to coordinate with the organization to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.
Specifically, Sanders argued that CNN and other news organizations have also reported about WikiLeaks information dumps and asked if “CNN is guilty” of conspiring with the Russian government for reporting stories about them.
“Outlets like yours, CNN spent a significant time looking for information on Wikileaks and also reporting on it,” she said. “Does that mean CNN is guilty of collusion?”

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper on Saturday played a devastating supercut that features Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) explaining why they would not vote on Obama’s nominee to replace Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016.
‘How is that not a failure?’: Trump health official called out by CNN’s Tapper over COVID-19 debacle
Admiral Brett Giroir was put on the spot on Sunday morning by CNN host Jake Tapper over the failure of the White House to still take the coronavirus pandemic seriously, and then ended up receiving a dressing down from the "State of the Union" host.
Noting the lack of masks at recent Trump rallies and the growing death toll of COVID-19 victims, Tapper exclaimed, “How is this not a failure, and how is President Trump leading us out of it in the right way, according to your own words?”
Girior attempted to explain that “people are empowered to know that they can slow the spread and change the course, they can save lives by doing the things we talk about, wearing a mask.”
