Sarah Sanders Was ‘Involved In Formulating The Cover-Up’ For Don Jr’s Meeting Russia: Ex-US Attorney
It was reported on Friday that special counsel Robert Mueller questioned White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders as part of his investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.
Following the report, former U.S. attorney Joyce Vance appeared on MSNBC where she claimed that the reason Sanders was questioned was that she could potentially be part of a cover-up to protect Donald Trump Jr. over his lies about his fateful meeting with Russians in Trump Tower.
It is “completely unsurprising that Sarah Huckabee Sanders has found herself at least a witness in this investigation,” said Vance, adding that she might well be “a subject or target.”
“As a prosecutor, I would want to question her and determine whether she was sent to the podium with the cover-up story as though it were truth, essentially sent out as a victim to peddle lies like so many others in this administration have been, or if she was part of formulating the cover-up,” Vance continued. “If she was involved in formulating the cover-up, or heard any conversation about creating a story, she’s become a very important witness.”
