Popular vote loser Donald Trump is going to be found guilty of obstruction of justice. It’s almost a certainty. It’s a matter of when, not if, at this point. What’s interesting is how many people he’s going to bring crashing down with him in this corruption.
His latest accomplice is White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who earlier this week spewed lie after lie about former FBI Director James Comey, Trump and their relationship as it relates to the Collusion investigation, when she implied that they are looking into taking action against Comey.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Tuesday that DOJ “should certainly look at” prosecuting former FBI Director James Comey, which is a clear obstruction of justice. The bad news for Sarah is it is on video.
“Is that something you’d like to see?” the reporter followed asked.
“I’m not sure about that specifically, but I think if there’s ever a moment where we feel someone’s broken the law, particularly if they’re the head of the FBI, I think that’s something that certainly should be looked at,” Sanders replied.
Politico points out, Trump fired Comey in May and later said he had done so because of the ongoing investigation into his campaign’s relationship with Russia, which Comey was overseeing in his capacity as head of the FBI.
In later testimony on Capitol Hill, Comey detailed his relationship with the president, including interactions in which he said Trump asked him to drop an ongoing investigation into his short-lived first national security adviser, Michael Flynn. Trump denied pressuring Comey to drop that probe.
Comey has not retracted his claim. He said he took extemporaneous notes, in the form of memos, on his conversations with Trump.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders has no idea what words like “leak” and “illegal” mean. The irony here is that between Comey and Trump, Trump is the one guilty of the things she’s implying Comey is guilty of. The information Comey released wasn’t classified. Sanders is either an idiot or just the public voice of her boss, who we know is an idiot, or both. I’m going with both.
