White House press briefing, Sarah Sanders reacts to Paul Manafort charges

White House press briefing, Sarah Sanders reacts to Paul Manafort charges”

"Today's announcement has nothing to do with the president, has nothing to do with the president's campaign or campaign activity", she said.

The cable news organization put up a series of screens titled "Facts First", which displayed different bullet points containing information as Sanders answered questions about whether special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe was affecting President Trump's ability to get his job done. "The real collusion scandal, as we've said several times before, has everything to do with the Clinton campaign, Fusion GPS, and Russia", Sanders said.

MS. SANDERS: It was extremely limited; it was a volunteer position.

Speaking of Trump Jr's meeting with Russians previous year, she said: "The big difference here is you have a meeting that took place vs millions of dollars being sent to create fake information to actually influence the election".

Sanders claimed that Papadopoulos was unpaid and asserted that his activities were considered "unofficial".

But "nothing happened beyond that", Sanders said of the "volunteer" adviser who she said attended just one campaign meeting. She continued that "no activity was ever done in an official capacity on behalf of the campaign in that regard".

By Lalit K Jha Washington, Oct 30 (PTI) The White House today claimed that there is clear evidence that former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton colluded with Russian Federation to spread wrong information about President Donald Trump.

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

Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle warned against calls to fire special prosecutor Robert Mueller or presidential pardons for those indicted.

As she spoke, CNN cited its report that Trump was "seething" behind the scenes after reports of the indictments on Monday, and noted that Trump has frequently tweeted about the probe.
