CNN’s John Berman on Monday schooled White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders after she ranted that the Mueller probe was an effort to “overthrow” President Donald Trump.
During an interview with CNN’s John Berman, the host asked Sanders about the president’s comments about the entire investigation being “an illegal takedown that failed.”
“I don’t disagree with him, he’s 100 percent right!” she gloated. “These are people who tried to overthrow the president!”
“Did Robert Mueller try to overthrow the president of the United States?” Berman asked her.
“I’m specifically talking about Democrats in the media who helped perpetuate this absurd lie!” she replied.
“Were Democrats and the media part of the Mueller investigation, were they part of his team of investigators?” he asked.
“They were among the people who helped make that possible, that pushed this narrative that created this entire spectacle in the first place!” she said, before pivoting to attack former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
At this point, Berman shut her argument down.
“James Clapper went on TV and made crystal clear that he had seen no evidence of collusion,” she said. “The investigation, as you know, Sarah, was started after conversations that George Papadopoulos had. The investigation was begun back then and Robert Mueller, in this report… finds two large areas where Russia did try to interfere!”

Reparations hearing erupts in applause after Ta-Nehisi Coates gives McConnell an epic lesson on racism
Author Ta-Nehisi Coates on Wednesday delivered an epic smack down of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on reparations for slavery.
In Coates's opening remarks, he responded directly McConnell's claim that the government should not pay out reparations to black Americans because slavery ended more than 150 years ago.
Coates pointed out that the United States was still paying out pensions to the families of Civil War soldiers "well into this century" and he said that the government still honors treaties it signed even though no one who signed them is still alive today.
Trump campaign official squirms when CNN host shows him polls of the president losing to literally everyone
CNN's Poppy Harlow on Wednesday cornered Trump campaign official Marc Lotter by showing him polls that show President Donald Trump losing to every major Democratic presidential candidate.
During an interview about Trump's 2020 campaign kickoff rally on Tuesday, Harlow asked Lotter why the president's poll numbers were so poor even though the economy is still performing well by many measures.
"A Quinnipiac poll came out yesterday -- it showed a whole lot of Democratic presidential candidates beating the president in head-to-head matchups, from Elizabeth Warren to Beto O'Rourke, to Joe Biden to South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg," she said. "Are you concerned about that?"
Angela Rye pounds CNN’s Steve Cortes for suggesting Ocasio-Cortez should resign
CNN turned into a shouting match on Tuesday after a Trump supporter attempted to defend the president's concentration camps along the southern border.
