Sarah Sanders Says the White House Is an Honest Place

White House/ZUMA

Ha ha ha:

President Trump’s spokeswoman, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, pushed back Friday against allegations that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s Russia report exposed a culture of lying at the White House.

Sanders also disputed allegations that she misled the media when she said that “countless” members of the FBI had lost confidence in FBI Director James B. Comey….She told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that her word “countless” was a “slip of the tongue” made in the “heat of the moment.”

Sure, Sarah. You meant to say that, um, an accountant in the FBI had lost confidence in Comey, but it came out as countless. It could happen to anyone.


We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
