Sanders: Indictments by Mueller Have Nothing to Do With Trump Campaign

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

Sanders's assertion is at odds with the indictment issued by the Special Counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, which states Papadopoulos was encouraged to meet with Russian officials by campaign officials.

"This individual was a member of a volunteer council that met one time", she said of Papadopolous, adding nothing in today's indictments is "evidence of Trump-Russia collusion".

Mrs. Sanders said that the Trump campaign has always fully cooperated with the investigation, including turning over all of Mr. Papadopoulos's emails.

The Washington Post reported last week that the Clinton campaign and the DNC had hired FusionGPS to produce a dossier on Trump.

Earlier Monday, Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Manafort's business associate turned themselves in to federal authorities after the pair was charged with 12 counts related to money laundering and other alleged crimes.

CNN has fact-checked the Trump administration in the past on its chyron.

Both pleaded not guilty to the charges Monday afternoon.




"How is it not collusion when George Papadopoulos is in contact with various people who are promising dirt on Hillary Clinton in a series of events that closely mirrors what occurred with the president's own son?" he asked. MS. SANDERS: It was extremely limited; it was a volunteer position.

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

The White House press secretary also insisted the president has "no intention or plan to make any changes in regards to special counsel".

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.

Sanders also raised a few eyebrows by starting the press briefing by using an analogy of reporters getting drunk and trying to split the tab to illustrate tax reform.

"This is something just announced", she said.
