White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders acknowledged to investigators with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team that she misled reporters when she insisted in May 2017 that “countless” FBI agents had lost confidence in former Director James Comey leading up to his dismissal.
The special counsel’s report, released Thursday, cited Sanders’s multiple false statements to reporters as part of its review of whether President Trump obstructed justice in firing Comey. Sanders told investigators that her misstatements were a “slip of the tongue,” and that the claims were not founded on anything.
The article goes on to state the following:
In a draft termination letter, Trump cited low morale within the bureau in his reasoning for firing Comey on May 9, 2017. The next day, Sanders, then the deputy press secretary, spoke to Trump about his decision before a press briefing with reporters, Mueller wrote.
