Sarah Sanders Apologizes for Not Being a ‘Robot’ After Mueller Report Exposes Her Comey Lie

Sarah Sanders mueller report

One of the small takeaways from the Mueller report was the proof that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has lied to the press on more than one occasion for President Donald Trump.

The report details a few times that Sanders lied to the press. She lied about the timeline in Trump’s decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey and lied about the involvement of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in that firing.

She also admitted to the special counsel’s office that she lied in saying that “countless FBI agents” lost faith in Comey, and she lied about Trump dictating his son’s statement to the press about the Trump Tower meeting.

But Sanders refused to admit that she spouted falsehoods. When asked by ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos about her remarks on Friday, she said: “It was in the heat of the moment, meaning that it wasn’t a scripted talking point.”

“I’m sorry that I wasn’t a robot like the Democrat Party that went out for two and a half years and stated time and time again that there was definitely Russian collusion between the president and his campaign.”

Watch the video below, via ABC News:

President Trump’s officials in the White House have been doing something of a victory tour since the Mueller report came out. In one appearance, Kellyanne Conway declared that the report marks the “best day” since Trump was elected.

However, while the White House seems pleased with the findings in the report, Democrats on Capitol Hill are hardly finished investigating the matter. The Democratic leaders in both chambers of Congress have called for Robert Mueller to testify, as has House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler.

And Trump still hasn’t stopped tweeting about the report, which he is now referring to as “the Crazy Mueller Report.” On Friday morning, he reminded his followers that he “never agreed to testify.”

It’s easy to tell when Sanders is lying – she has a tell. Her eyelid droops when she’s not telling the truth. She’d be a terrible poker player.

“She’d be a terrible poker player.” You, obviously, would be too.

What is your basis for that assumption? I can’t make any assumptions on your poker playing skills. BUT I can attest that you are not great at selecting what you bet on.

SO, since you “can attest” to my bets, just what was “not great” about the 1500 I won by betting the “over” on the NCAA Championship Game? Even though you think you are smarter than ANYBODY else here, your self-proclaimed ability to “attest to” things you have no knowledge about is not lost on IJR readers. It just shows your own ignorance about the powers you think you have.

BTW, the basis for my assumption is the same basis for Ed’s assumption. Ed’s seems to be just fine for you, so I expect mine to be just fine for you, also.

Please tell all IJR readers the results of the last 3 bets I’ve made since you “can attest” to what I bet on.

I’m sure a few months from now, when you think everybody has forgotten, you will deny making that statement, too.

Her track record indicates that eyelid observation is not necessary. Are her lips moving? The Mueller report only deals with Sarah’s lies as they relate to obstruction of justice in the investigation of the firing of Comey. If Mueller was charged with investigating all the lies of the press secretary, the report would be much longer than 448 pages.

“Are her lips moving?” So, now you think you are an old, tired comedienne? I expect so much more from the self-proclaimed expert you have stated that you are. I am sure the you will tell everyone here that you have a list of EVERY ONE of Sanders lies.
