White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders Admits To Making False Statements To The Press, Has Held Record Low Number Of Press Briefings
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders admitted under oath to the Mueller investigation team that she made false statements to the press.
“Sanders told Mueller that her comment that ‘countless’ FBI employees had told her they supported the president’s decision was ‘a slip of the tongue.’ She also said a second utterance — in which she said that Trump and ‘the rest of the FBI’ had lost confidence in Comey — was made ‘in the heat of the moment.’ Mueller’s report concluded that her comments were ‘not founded on anything.'”
Sanders has also broken the record for longest period of time without an official White House press briefing to answer questions. “This breaks the previous record set in March  (42 days), which broke the record set in January  (41 days). Since the beginning of the year, Sanders has had just two briefings, fielding press questions for a mere 30 minutes or so in total.” In previous administrations, press briefings occurred almost daily.
