‘Sorry That I Wasn't a Robot': Sarah Sanders Defends Evidence-Free Claim About FBI, Comey

"I said a slip of the tongue was in using the word 'countless,' but there were a number of FBI, both former and current, that agreed with the president's decision and they've continued to speak out and say that," Sanders said during an interview on "GMA"

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders on Friday repeated her claim that it was "a slip of the tongue" when she told reporters that "countless" FBI agents had told the White House that they had lost confidence in James Comey, NBC News reported

Special counsel Robert Mueller's report, released Thursday, said that Sanders had simply made the assertion up in 2017. Sanders told investigators she had no evidence to make that claim. 

On Friday, Sanders said on "Good Morning America" that she was "sorry that I wasn't a robot like the Democratic 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." 

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election included instances of potential obstruction by President Donald Trump. Here is a rundown of the ten mentioned in the report.
