White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called-out ABC News’ Jonathan Karl during her daily press briefing Tuesday; reminding the reporter that “everybody wants to blame Trump” for Russian interference but it actually occurred “under the Obama administration.”
Sanders was responding to Karl’s question surrounding the President’s fiery tweets over the weekend; where he urged the FBI to refocus their efforts as the Russian-Trump collusion narrative continues to crash and burn.
“Did he ‘mistweet’ when he said that? Because he’s pretty direct,” asked the ABC reporter.
“He’s making the point that we would like the FBI to not be focused on something that is clearly a hoax in terms of investigating the Trump campaign,” responded the Press Secretary.
“Look, just last week the Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen met with a number of relevant stakeholders,” Sanders fired-back. “They are discussing this process and going through and looking every single day at the best ways going forward.”
“Everybody wants to blame this on the Trump Administration. Let’s not forget that this happened under the Obama Administration,” she added.
