“It’s simply not necessary,” Deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Thursday in response to the possibility of bringing in a special prosecutor to investigate Russian election interference.
She explained the situation to host Charlie Rose on “CBS This Morning,” saying, “You’ve got multiple groups already looking into this: the House committees, the Senate committees, the Deputy Attorney General through the FBI. They are already looking at this, I don’t think that it is necessary to bring in another individual to take this on.”
Her comments came after President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, who was leading the investigation into Russian meddling in the election, on Tuesday.
According to Trump, he fired Comey on the recommendation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The president has also said that Comey was not very good at his job.
