GOP Rep. Charlie Dent (Pa.) said Rudy Giuliani’s Stormy Daniels revelations raise serious questions about how White House press secretary Sarah Sanders can credibly do her job when she is being given orders to issue falsehoods from the podium.
In an interview with CNN, Dent noted that Giulian’s story directly contradicts past statements made by both Sanders and the president, adding that he believes Trump’s newly appointed lawyer, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R).
“Well, it’s clear that someone wasn’t telling the truth, either Sarah Huckabee Sanders or the president,” Dent said. “I believe what Rudy Giuliani said last night — that Michael Cohen was reimbursed by the president for this hush payment,” he continues.
“I guess at some point you have to ask the question, how does Sarah Huckabee Sanders go to work every day if she was sent out there to mislead the American people?”
Sanders has continued to defend Trump against allegations he was connected to a $130,000 payment made to porn star Stormy Daniels by his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, as part of a nondisclosure agreement signed days before the 2016 election.
