After Mueller Caught Her Lying To The Press, Sanders Tells Dems To ‘Quit Lying And Do Their Jobs’




Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who was caught lying to the press by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, mocked Democrats on Twitter following Mueller’s marathon congressional testimony on Wednesday, saying she felt “almost sorry” for lawmakers and that they should “quit lying and do their jobs.”

“Almost feel sorry for the Democrats: they said @realDonaldTrump would lose-he won; said he’d ruin our economy-it’s booming; and when all else failed said he’s a traitor! when in fact he’s a patriot making America great again,” she tweeted.

“Maybe Dems should just quit lying and do their jobs,” Sanders added.



According to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, Sanders lied to reporters and the American people when she claimed in 2017 that “countless” FBI workers told the White House they had no confidence in former FBI Director James Comey.

Sanders later told Mueller’s investigators she had no evidence to back up her claim.

According to the Mueller Report, “Sanders acknowledge to investigators that her comments were not founded on anything.”

Read the excerpt from Mueller’s report, below:

The President’s draft termination letter also stated that morale in the FBI was at an all-time low and Sanders told the press after Comey’s termination that the White House had heard from “countless” FBI agents who had lost confidence in Comey. But the evidence does not support those claims. The President told Comey at their January 27 dinner that “the people of the FBI really like [hiin],” no evidence suggests that the President heard otherwise before deciding to terminate Camey, and Sanders acknowledged to investigators that her comments were not founded on anything.
