Sarah Sanders Just Unknowingly Turned Trump Over To Mueller
After a five-week hiatus, White House press secretary finally held a press conference that was filled with questions about a lot of subjects. One of the subjects that came up was that Roger Stone indictment.
CNN’s Jim Acosta decided to ask Sanders if Donald Trump had anything to do with Stone’s connection to WikiLeaks.
He first asked:
“Roger Stone last week, Paul Manafort, Michael Cohen, Michael Flynn. Are you concerned, is the president concerned that as more and more of his former aides, associates are brought in to this investigation, are indicted, plead guilty, that this presidency is in danger?”
“Not at all,” Sanders responded. “In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. The more this goes on, the more we see none of these things have anything to do with the president.”
She added: “In Roger Stone’s cases, the charges of that indictment have nothing to do with the president and have to do with his communications with Congress. So in fact, I think the further we get into the process, the more and more we see that this has nothing to do with president Trump.”
But Acosta continued to press Sanders about Trump’s contacts with Stone.
“Can you assure the American people that during these conversations that Roger Stone had with WikiLeaks and individuals assigned to the dumping of that material that at no time the president had any interactions with Roger Stone?” the CNN correspondent wondered.
Sanders completely ignored that question, adding suspicion on whether Trump actually knew about Stone’s illegal actions.
“What I can tell you, the president did nothing wrong throughout the process,” Sanders insisted. The charges of the indictment against Mr. Stone have absolutely nothing to do with the president.”
