Donald Trump’s mouthpiece, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, has been accused of just passing on a more diffused version on his lies. She stands in the rain, in the Washington, D.C. heat and humidity, and blustery snowstorms facing reporters and might as well just said “Ditto.” Her latest repeated fiction flies in the face of credibility.
Once again, Sanders told the press that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s attack on the 2016 presidential election and Trump’s possible conspiracy with the Russians was a “hoax and waste of time.”
Trump still maintained that the investigation was a “witch hunt” and a “hoax.” He also hit back with other messaged words such as “Fake Dirty Dossier.”
On Fox and Friends, the White House press secretary said:
‘We’d all be a lot better off if … Congress and the special counsel could come to the same conclusion that the rest of America has – that this is a hoax and a waste of time.’
In addition, POTUS noted that the opposition research that supposedly tied him to Putin had been partly financed by Clinton’s Democratic presidential campaign. Trump wants Mueller stopped.
Never mind that Representative Trey Gowdy’s (R-SC) investigation as chair of the House Benghazi Committee into Hillary Clinton lasted over two years. The representative still mouthed the president’s refrain until last week.
Then, Gowdy flipped and said he did not think that the special counsel’s investigation was a “witch hunt.”
Thus far, the special counsel’s investigation has already gained indictments or guilty pleas for three Russian corporations and 32 people. Just last week, Mueller indicted 12 Russian intelligence officials.
The special counsel charged them with conspiring to influence the 2016 presidential election via hacking the nation’s election systems.
These included four former Trump campaign workers: campaign manager Paul Manafort, another campaign manager Richard Gates, foreign policy advisory panel member George Papadopoulos, and national security advisor, Michael Flynn.
New documents showed that Russia had been actively trying to recruit another Trump aide, Carter Page. The documents were part of the evidence used to convince a judge to give the FBI surveillance warrants. These papers showed that the former aid could be linked to the Steele dossier and Russia.
