Sarah Sanders admitted to providing media baseless information about Comey: Mueller report

GLAAD, the nation's top LGBTQ media advocacy organization, is calling for White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to resign after she admitted to investigators with special counsel Robert Mueller's team that she misled reporters when speaking about President Trump's firing of former FBI Director James Comey.

In an interview Thursday night with Fox News, Sanders said: "I acknowledge that I had a slip of the tongue when I used the word "countless" but it's not untrue ... that a number of both current and former Federal Bureau of Investigation agents agreed with the president".

According to Mueller's report, however, there is "substantial evidence" to indicate that Trump fired Comey for refusing to publicly state that the president wasn't personally under investigation.

"Actually, if you look at what I said, I said the slip of the tongue was using the word 'countless.'" Sanders said.

According to the report, while Sanders told the press the president didn't dictate a statement about a June 2016 meeting with Trump campaign members and a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower in NY after it was revealed by the press, the president's lawyers later said otherwise in interviews with the special counsel. "It's time for her to go".

At least one publisher said the credibility problems that existed for Sanders before Mueller's report have worsened after it. "When there is a lack of credibility there, you have to start ... lopping the heads off". She claimed "the president's rhetoric matches" Democrats accusing Trump of collusion, which is "an accusation equal to treason, which is punishable by death in this country".

Asked by TV host George Stephanopoulos about her "deliberate false statement" she said: "They [FBI rank-and-file] continued to speak out and said that James Comey was a disgrace, a leaker". The president doesn't want to take the fall, so he may make her take the fall.

"The White House Press Secretary's role is to keep the public informed about the most powerful office in the world", GLAAD tweeted.

Guthrie said to Sanders, "Would you acknowledge it is incorrect for the president to call this a total exoneration?" And the people, the American people can't trust her. Sanders has also had a strained relationship with reporters at times, with a number of heated exchanges between several White House reporters at daily briefings.

Ryan responded, warning the Arkansas Republican that "If anything happens to me or mine or anyone connected to me, you and your daughter and this administration will be held accountable!".

Incoming White House aides also lied about press accounts they knew were accurate.

"Let me tell you something, she's been making this pie for years... makes them for friends, but here's the warning that I would issue".
