CNN’s April Ryan busts White House for calling her to spin Sarah Sanders’ lies after Mueller revelations
In conversation with Erin Burnett about White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ lies about the FBI, CNN’s April Ryan disclosed that the White House called her and tried to “explain” to her their own narrative about what Sanders said.
“She made a comment from the White House podium, right, saying that the rank and file FBI agents had lost confidence in Jim Comey, right, she said it as a fact and more than once,” said Burnett. “She told Bob Mueller that quote that was not founded on anything … she admitted, April, to the special counsel that she hadn’t talked to anybody. When she said it she made it up. She admitted that. But now she is saying it’s 100 percent accurate. What do you make of the explanation?”
“Well, let me say this, the White House is very concerned,” said Ryan. “I got a call today because, you know, as I said, I called her a liar. And the White House tried to explain to me what it was.”
“A lie is a lie is a lie,” Ryan continued indignantly. “She calls us fake news? She is a fake press secretary disseminating lies … she lied to the press, who in turn delivered that information to the American public. It’s not about us. It’s about the American public.”
“People are not going to be able to trust her, or even this administration, it’s even bigger than Sarah at this point,” Ryan concluded. “It’s now the president. It’s now his minions. Can you trust? And the answer is no. There are big questions today.”
