Let’s be very clear: Sarah Sanders lied to Robert Mueller

During the panel discussion, Ryan was asked about the allegations that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made certain statements to the public that were inaccurate. The Mueller report reveals that she confessed that these sweeping statements were simply made up (and these fictions had nothing to do with the president's decision to fire him, which was Sanders' claim).

Mueller's report says Sanders told investigators that her statements in defense of Comey's firing were made "in the heat of the moment" and "not founded on anything".

Appearing on ABC on Sunday morning, advisor to the president Kellyanne Conway refused repeated requests from host Martha Raddatz about whether Donald Trump lied about wanting to fire special counsel Robert Mueller. But the example laid bare in Mueller's report - when she was still a deputy press secretary - is striking because Sanders fessed up to it.

"She should be let go, she should be fired, end of story", Ryan opined on Thursday night.

"Look, we've heard from countless members of the Federal Bureau of Investigation that say very different things", Sanders replied. Sanders said she didn't know anything about the repayment until Giuliani disclosed it.

The long-awaited report - the product of a two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election and the Trump campaign - exposed a culture of lying at the White House. "They have the option, they could be working with the president to solve some of the big problems", Sanders said.

"I think that the White House is in a great position, and what we've been saying for the last two and a half years has been totally vindicated".

"No one views the White House as credible on this issue", a senior House Democratic aide told Roll Call earlier this month after White House acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney was on Capitol Hill talking to Senate Democrats about some kind of border security deal.

"Between, like, email, text messages, absolutely. They've said I deserve a lifetime of harassment", Sanders said on Fox and Friends, speaking over a rousing musical performance at the White House Easter egg roll.

"However, any conversations between the two would have been in reference to the need for White House personnel to voluntarily comply with the Senate Intelligence Committee's Russian Federation investigation", she said.
