Sarah Sanders Accused Of 'Lying' During Press Briefing On Paul Manafort Charges

Donald Trump

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".

"It has to do with his failure to tell the truth".

"There are no activities or official capacity in which the Trump campaign was engaged in any of these activities".

On Monday Sanders also said the President has "no intention" of firing Mueller, despite several past reports that said Trump has asked for advice on whether he could get rid of Mueller.

"What the Clinton campaign did, what the DNC did was actually exchange money, they took a meeting", Sanders said.

As the first charges in the Muller probe into the Trump administration for their ties to Russian Federation on the election trail have been filed, President Donald Trump is getting mad.
