Sanders goes on offensive defending credibility after report

Sanders defends herself over Mueller report revelation Sanders goes on offensive defending credibility after report

In 2017, after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, Sanders repeatedly made statements in support of this decision, including a claim that "countless members of the FBI" had contacted her to say they had lost confidence in Comey.

Should Sarah Sanders hold another, she can expect to spend it in the hot seat.

President Donald Trump has been publicly stewing about some of the details in the Mueller report since its release Thursday, but behind the scenes he is "furious".

"The President told Comey at their January 27 dinner that 'the people of the Federal Bureau of Investigation really like (him),' no evidence suggests that the President heard otherwise before deciding to terminate Comey, and Sanders acknowledged to investigators that her comments were not founded on anything", the report said.

Sanders told investigators working on special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation that she made false statements about the firing, calling it a "slip of the tongue" made "in the heat of the moment", according to the report.

On May 10, when a reporter pushed back on Sanders' claim that "the rank and file of the FBI had lost confidence in their director", and quoted an FBI special agent who said "the vast majority of the bureau is in favour of Director Comey", she said: "Look, we've heard from countless members of the FBI that say very different things". Despite claiming to the special counsel's office that it was a "slip of the tongue", Sanders defended her specific wording in an interview on "Good Morning America" Friday.

Mueller wrote in his report that Sanders spoke to Trump following the briefing, and that the president praised her work "and did not point out any inaccuracies in her comments". "When there is a lack of credibility there, you have to start ... lopping the heads off". Everything comes to the White House from war to peace and everything in between. CNN's April Ryan Says Sarah Sanders' Head Should Be "Lopped Off'", he tweeted.

Mueller concluded his investigation last month and Attorney General William Barr released a redacted version of the special counsel's report on Thursday.

"Sarah plays a unsafe game in that room", Ryan said.

Sanders is notoriously combative with the press corps, often blatantly lying or just straight up refusing to answer reporters' questions.

"Therefore, she should be let go; she should be fired; end of story", Ryan continued. The president did not "dictate" the statement, she explained on air, but "weighed in" and "relayed information he wanted included".

"As your people come for me!"

Then the press secretary returned to the regularly repeated refrain - this was a "two and a half year witch hunt that has hurt our country", she said.
