Sanders says no culture of lying at the White House

Sanders says no culture of lying at the White House

"Not founded on anything" is the new "alternative facts".

"Huckabee, Sanders" father, tweeted Friday night that Ryan's "incitement to murder" should lead to a revocation of her White House credentials. Now some prominent journalists are questioning whether she should remain in her job.

On Thursday night Ryan used CNN's platform to stress that Sanders should resign after the Robert Mueller's Special Counsel report found that Sanders admitted to lying to the press about why President Trump fired former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey in 2017.

GLAAD later followed up with another tweet attacking Sanders, noting that she defended Trump's call for a complete ban on transgender service members by alleging that military leaders supported the president's call for a ban.

Sanders, who spoke to Mueller's investigators under oath, told them her use of the word "countless" was a "slip of the tongue".

Mueller's report says Sanders told investigators that her statements in defense of Comey's firing were made "in the heat of the moment" and "not founded on anything". "It's time for her to go".

"Sarah, hold on a sec", Stephanopoulos said.

"The game is risky because she is lying to the American public. My people see you and will do the same for you!" she tweeted.

This isn't the first instance in which the credibility of Sanders, who speaks for the White House and is paid by American taxpayers, has come under scrutiny.

Sanders stopped holding daily press briefings previous year. It was merely prelude to what's happening in the White House today.

"Firing James Comey remains one of the best decisions that the president made", said Sanders.

Democratic lawmakers wasted little time Thursday calling for her ouster following the special counsel's report that detailed several instances in which Sanders misled reporters, especially about Trump's decision-making before he fired then-FBI Director James Comey.

Appearing on ABC on Sunday morning, advisor to the president Kellyanne Conway refused repeated requests from host Martha Raddatz about whether Donald Trump lied about wanting to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.

The next day, May 11, Sanders went even further.

Sanders responded on "Fox & Friends".

"I don't think reporters should have White House staff on who repeatedly lie", stated Scarborough.

Hannity airs weeknights at 9 p.m. on Fox News.

In her conversation with Burnett, Ryan said it is wrong for Sanders to make reference to the phrase "fake news" when she has been spreading falsehoods.

"This now documented, on-the-record, under-oath episode, I think it completely obliterates her credibility", said Kyle Pope, editor-in-chief and publisher of Columbia Journalism Review.
