Watch Sarah Huckabee Sanders Double Down on a Possible Pardon for Michael Cohen
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Monday refused to rule out a possible pardon for Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen.
During a press briefing, Sanders was asked about an earlier statement in which she said she wasn’t “going to talk about hypotheticals that don’t exist right now” in regards to the issue.
CNN’s Jim Acosta note that she “didn’t close the door one way or another.”
“It’s hard to close the door on something that hasn’t taken place,” Sanders replied. “I don’t like to discuss or comment on hypothetical situations that may or may not ever happen.”

Sanders also remarked on Trump tweets in which he said he he doesn’t think Cohen will “flip” on him. Cohen is under criminal investigation by the FBI.
“The president has been clear that he hasn’t done anything wrong. We’ve said that about a thousand times,” Sanders said. “Beyond that, I don’t have anything to add.”
