Watch Sarah Huckabee Sanders Claim Trump Has 'Power' to Fire Mueller in Chilling Press Briefing

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday insisted that the investigations into President Donald Trump’s campaign and acquaintances had “gone too far.”


During Tuesday’s White House briefing, ABC correspondent Jonathan Karl asked Sanders why the president had called a raid on his lawyer’s offices “an attack on our country.”

“In what way is an FBI raid on Michael Cohen’s office an attack on our country?” Karl queried.

Sanders implicitly defended the president by referring Karl back to Trump’s remarks.

“The president has been clear that he thinks this is gone too far,” Sanders stated. “Beyond that, I don’t have anything to add. But I’d refer you back to the president’s comments.”

“That amounts to an attack on our country?” Karl pressed.

“I don’t have anything to add,” Sanders replied dismissively.

Karl then wondered if Trump believed he has the power to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.

“He certainly believes he has the power to do so,” Sanders insisted.
