During Wednesday's press briefing, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders continued to argue that the Justice Department should look into prosecuting former FBI Director James Comey.

According to Sanders, the memos Comey leaked to the New York Times following his firing were “created on an FBI computer while he was the director,” and leaking said documents was “against the personnel disclosure that all members sign.”

“That is clean and clear that that would be a violation,” Sanders added.

The White House's comments on Wednesday come a day after Sanders said the Justice Department “should certainly look at” prosecuting Comey for what the administration alleges was potentially illegal leaking of information and providing false testimony under oath.

When asked Wednesday what the administration suggests be done regarding Comey, Sanders refused to offer an explicit answer.

“That's not up to me to decide. I'm not an attorney. I think the facts of the case are very clear,” she said.

While Sanders didn't outright suggest the Department of Justice look into Comey, the White House did rather succinctly lay out a case for charges to be brought against the former FBI director.

“What I've said and what I'm talking about are facts. James Comey leaking of information, questionable statements under east, politicizing investigation, those are real reasons for why he was fired, and the president's decision was 100 percent right, which we've said multiple times over and over,” Sanders said.

“In fact, I think the more and more we learn, the more and more that's been vindicated,” she added.
