Sarah Sanders Accused Of 'Lying' During Press Briefing On Paul Manafort Charges
Mrs. Sanders said that the Trump campaign has always fully cooperated with the investigation, including turning over all of Mr. Papadopoulos's emails.
"Today's announcement has nothing to do with the President, has nothing to do with the President's campaign or campaign activity". The special counsel tasked with investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election as well as potential collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin released a statement which says that Papadopoulos "pleaded guilty on October 5, 2017, to making false statements to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1001".
MS. SANDERS: It was extremely limited; it was a volunteer position. Meanwhile, CNN's fact check read: "Reality check: Papadopoulos' role", and listed that Trump had in the past cited Papadopoulos as an "excellent guy" and that Papadopoulos had attended "at least one meeting".
She also criticized Hillary Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee for their contributions which funded research for a dossier alleging Mr. Trump's connections to Russian Federation.
"There is no evidence Mr. Manafort or the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government", said Manafort's attorney, Kevin Downing.
Sanders said the indictments and guilty plea have "nothing to do with the President's campaign or campaign activity".
