‘This Opens Up Another Investigation’: Ex-Prosecutor Warns Trump After Mueller Interview With Sanders
A report released during the week revealed that special counsel Robert Mueller interviewed White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
On Saturday, following the report, former federal prosecutor Cynthia Alksne appeared on MSNBC where she claimed that the interview between Sanders and Mueller may have opened up a new line of investigation into the White House lying.
“Can you ever say ‘No, I don’t want to talk to you?’” host Alex Witt asked about Sanders being summoned.
“Of course you can,” Alksne replied. “You can say no and wait to be subpoenaed — absolutely you could say no.”
“It’s interesting, this opens up yet another branch in the investigation,” the former prosecutor offered. “They’re trying to find out if the president directed people to lie because what Sarah Sanders said in the press conference on August 1st in 2017 — that the president did not dictate the statement regarding the Trump Tower meeting when, in fact, he did.”
“So they want to know why did she say that?” she elaborated. “Did someone tell her to say that? Was she part of framing that? That’s interesting. — there’s a bunch of other people who have the same problem.”
