‘I’m Sorry I Wasn’t A Robot!’ Sarah Sanders Confronted On ABC For Admitting To Mueller She Lied To Reporters





White House press secretary Sarah Sanders is standing by her evidence-free statement that “countless” FBI workers told the White House they had no confidence in former FBI Director James Comey — even though she told special counsel Robert Mueller’s team the assertion was unfounded.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, released Thursday, said that Sanders had simply made the assertion up in 2017. Sanders told investigators she had no evidence to make that claim.

ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on Friday confronted Sanders for blatantly lying from the White House podium about former FBI Director James Comey.


During an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Stephanopoulos pressed Sanders to explain why she told reporters that “countless” FBI agents had told the White House that they had lost confidence in James Comey.

“That’s not a slip of the tongue, Sarah, that’s a deliberate false statement,” he said.

“Actually, if you look at what I said, I said the ‘slip of the tongue’ was in using the word ‘countless,’” Sanders explained. “There were a number of FBI [agents], former and current, that agreed with the president’s decision.”

Stephanopoulos pointed to special counsel Robert Mueller’s report that Sanders admitted to the special counsel that her comments about Comey “were not founded on anything.”




“It was in the heat of the moment, meaning that it wasn’t a scripted talking point,” she said. “I’m sorry that I wasn’t a robot like the Democrat Party that went out for two and a half years and stated time and time again that there was definitely Russian collusion between the president and his campaign.”
