Sarah Sanders went on the attack on Friday in response to the New York Times article claiming Trump fires James Comey for investigating him. Sanders let everyone know Comey was fired for being a political hack and a disgrace.
The New York Times reported,
Agents and senior F.B.I. officials had grown suspicious of Mr. Trump’s ties to Russia during the 2016 campaign but held off on opening an investigation into him, the people said, in part because they were uncertain how to proceed with an inquiry of such sensitivity and magnitude. But the president’s activities before and after Mr. Comey’s firing in May 2017, particularly two instances in which Mr. Trump tied the Comey dismissal to the Russia investigation, helped prompt the counterintelligence aspect of the inquiry, the people said.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders released a statement to the press in response to the Times. Sanders lets everyone know Comey was fired for being a political hack.
“James Comey was fired because he’s a disgraced partisan hack, and his Deputy Andrew McCabe, who was in charge at the time, is a known liar fired by the FBI. Unlike President Obama, who let Russia and other foreign adversaries push America around, President Trump has actually been tough on Russia.”
