Former U.S. attorney Joyce Vance was unsurprised that White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was questioned by special counsel Robert Mueller, and said much could hinge on whether she was an unwitting victim of President Donald Trump’s lies about his son’s fateful meeting with Russians in Trump Tower, or whether she was actively involved in the cover-up.
It is “completely unsurprising that Sarah Huckabee Sanders has found herself at least a witness in this investigation,” said Vance, adding that she might well be “a subject or target.”
“As a prosecutor, I would want to question her and determine whether she was sent to the podium with the cover-up story as though it were truth, essentially sent out as a victim to peddle lies like so many others in this administration have been, or if she was part of formulating the cover-up,” Vance continued. “If she was involved in formulating the cover-up, or heard any conversation about creating a story, she’s become a very important witness.”

If Trump really believed he was falsely accused ‘that is not a corrupt motive’ for removing the special counsel: Bill Barr
Attorney General William Barr told Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) that if President Donald Trump really and truly thought he was being falsely accused of collaborating with Russia to steal the 2016 presidential election, that it was "not a corrupt motive" for firing Robert Mueller, a stunning statement from the nation's highest law enforcement officer.
"As a matter of law, I think the department's position would be that the president can direct the termination or the replacement of a special counsel," said Barr. "And as a matter of law, the obstruction statute does not reach that conduct."
