Trump’s Press Secretary Just Made A Serious Allegation Against Comey That May Cost Her

In a press briefing on the sixteenth anniversary of 9/11,  White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused former FBI Chief James Comey of committing perjury in his Senate Testimony.

Start watching the video around 27:30 to see what Sanders said.

She purported that Comey gave a false of the president asking him to obstruct Special Prosecutor Mueller’s investigation into collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.

Veteran investigative journalist and Vanity Fair Contributing Editor Kurt Eichenwald tweeted out today that Ms. Sanders’ accusations constitute front-page news.

When John Roberts of Fox News asked her what she meant in alleging Comey gave “false testimony,” she replied that that was “something for the DOJ [Department of Justice] to look into.”

In another tweet, Mr. Eichenwald posed the question that, if Sanders had accused the former head of the FBI of perjury with no evidence, “did she engage in an obstruction?”

In his thread, Eichenwald challenged journalists to push her to explain her statement further.

Given her history of deflecting critical questions pointed at her and her boss, Sanders is unlikely to take accountability for the rhetorical bomb she threw today.  But an FBI already outraged by Trump’s firing of their old boss is unlikely to take such accusations lying down.
