Sarah Sanders reiterates Comey claims despite admitting to lying

Take a look at the redacted, publicly-released version of the report by special counsel Robert Mueller. One could have been forgiven for having thought that the man doing the talking was a friend of Trump's, or perhaps his personal lawyer, not our nation's top law-enforcement official. Given that Mueller could not indict a sitting president, Giuliani said, the team kept its focus on Mueller's "capacity to report, so we had to play in the media as well as legally".

'Statements are made about me by certain people in the Crazy Mueller Report, in itself written by 18 Angry Democrat Trump Haters, which are fabricated & totally untrue.

At the outset, that appointment led Trump to predict "the end of my presidency".

In the White House, many aides take notes - sometimes to memorialise odd moments or orders Trump gave that made them uncomfortable, and sometimes simply to remember one's marching orders or what was agreed to during a meeting.

Sanders, who spoke to Mueller's investigators under oath, told them her use of the word "countless" was a "slip of the tongue". A date was set for that to take place at Camp David.

When questioned about the comment by the special counsel, Sanders said the comment was made in the heat of the moment. No reputable news outlet should host her.

Those private complaints were dwarfed by louder public protests.


Mueller said McGahn feared Trump was setting in motion a series of events "akin to the Saturday Night Massacre", the Nixonian effort to rein in the Watergate investigation.

Nevertheless, in the public accounting of what went on during the investigation, it's important to be forthright about what happened.

"No proof of criminal conspiracy" isn't just a lousy campaign slogan, it's also only a very small part of a much larger story. "There was a protester who shouted at Trump and was booed". At least one interaction caught Mueller's attention as a possible effort to discourage a witness from cooperating against the president.

The attorney general works for the people, not for the president.

Once Trump and his lawyers made a decision to cooperate with the special counsel investigation, many administration officials voluntarily sat for interviews with Mueller's team and shared their emails, notes and other records. The special counsel did not conclude that Trump's campaign colluded with Russians. And while her lies were about a matter that was important to the investigation - Trump's motives for firing Comey are key to the obstruction of justice investigation - the difference between Sanders making a mistake with the press and actively lying to the press do not plausibly constitute a serious enough distinction to investigators to be worth charging. Attorney General William Barr decided not to pursue obstruction charges.

"I'm frustrated by the report because in some ways I'd love to have a trial and prove that it's not true".

"By the way you should be celebrating Good Friday or do you even remember Jesus anymore?", April continued, later writing that he wouldn't "get into Heaven".
