Watch Sarah Huckabee Sanders lie over and over again about FBI agents and Comey

Published

on

Outrage is growing after the redacted version of the Mueller report revealed Sarah Huckabee Sanders admitted to lying to reporters, with the report stating point blank her lies were “based on nothing.”

She told the FBI it was “a slip of the tongue” and “in the heat of the moment.”

That’s clearly false, because she repeated it over and over again.

Huckabee Sanders told reporters over the course of at least two days in May of 2017 that “countless” numbers and “a large number” of FBI agents contacted her personally to offer support for President Donald Trump firing Jim Comey as FBI Director.

According to the Mueller report, that’s just plain false.

Here’s video of the second day when Huckabee Sanders repeatedly lied to reporters:

And here’s a portion from the official White House transcript:

Q    Sarah, you said from the podium yesterday that Director Comey had lost the confidence of the rank and file of the FBI.  On Capitol Hill today, the Acting Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe directly contradicted that.  What led you and the White House to believe that he had lost the confidence of the rank and file of the FBI when the Acting Director says it’s exactly the opposite?

MS. SANDERS:  Well, I can speak to my own personal experience.  I’ve heard from countless members of the FBI that are grateful and thankful for the President’s decision.  And I think that we may have to agree to disagree.  I’m sure that there are some people that are disappointed, but I certainly heard from a large number of individuals — and that’s just myself — and I don’t even know that many people in the FBI.

Published

on

President Donald Trump's defense attorney took to the pages a Rupert Murdoch's newspaper to make "the case for the impeachment defense" on the eve of televised inquiry hearings.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani lashed out enemies while clinging to conspiracy theories in his Wall Street Journal op-ed.

Giuliani began by attacking the press for reporting on Trump's solicitation of foreign election interference.

"If your only sources of news the past two months have been CNN and MSNBC, you probably think President Trump has committed some heinous act that is deserving of being drawn, quartered and carted out of the White House," Giuliani argued. "That’s a false narrative built on selectively leaked testimony from Rep. Adam Schiff’s closed-door Intelligence Committee hearings."

CNN’s Cuomo hammers GOP lobbyist for saying Trump can fire the inspector general

Published

on

On Tuesday's edition of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," anchor Chris Cuomo pushed back on GOP lobbyist and American Conservative Union director Matt Schlapp for saying President Donald Trump has the right to fire Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson for transmitting the whistleblower complaint.

"Why would it be okay for the president to go after the inspector general for dealing with the whistleblower?" said Cuomo.

"Because he serves at the pleasure of the president. The president can get rid of them at any time," said Schlapp. "At the State Department during Obama's presidency, during the whole time Hillary was at the State Department, he didn't bother to pick an IG."
