Sarah Sanders Accused Of 'Lying' During Press Briefing On Paul Manafort Charges

Donald Trump

At one point during Monday's daily press briefing Huckabee Sanders literally refused to mention that Paul Manafort was the campaign chairman.

Sanders was also asked how well she knew Papadopoulos, who pleaded guilty earlier this month to lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents who are investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

"No activity was ever done in an official capacity", Huckabee Sanders said of Papadopoulos.

The indictment also said that Papadopoulos was told by the Russian professor in London that the Russians had dirt on Hillary Clinton in the form of thousands of emails.

Sanders was then asked by a reporter: "So his activities were entirely of his invention, no one asked him to do any of these things - is that what you're telling the American public?"

As she spoke, CNN cited its report that Trump was "seething" behind the scenes after reports of the indictments on Monday, and noted that Trump has frequently tweeted about the probe.

Mr. Manafort and longtime business partner Rick Gates were charged with conspiring against the USA and money laundering in connection with their work for pro-Russian interests in Ukraine.

Nats hire Martinez as manager
The 53-year-old Martinez was considered the front-runner to replace Dusty Baker , who was sacked last week after two seasons. A year later, the Cubs won the 2016 World Series title for the team's first championship in 108 years.

And there is a hint that Papadopoulos may be the beginning of Mueller's effort to bring charges against Trump campaign officials.

The plea was unsealed Monday, but his sentencing hearing will be scheduled later.

"We believe that it will be concluded soon", she said.

A day after major news about indictments and a guilty plea, Sarah Huckabee Sanders knocked the press for being "obsessed" with the Mueller investigation. "I'm not drawing a red line".

"The initial House tax reform bill will be introduced on Wednesday by the Ways & Means committee", Sanders said. In order to stay on pace, we want to see a House bill passed by Thanksgiving. And he was part of a list that was read out in the Washington Post.

Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, ruling that the ban would likely be found unconstitutional, issued a primary injunction halting Trump's ban on transgender service members and recruits.

"This is something just announced", she said.
