During an interview with CNN’s John Berman, the host asked Sanders about the president’s comments about the entire investigation being “an illegal takedown that failed.”
“I don’t disagree with him, he’s 100 percent right!” she gloated. “These are people who tried to overthrow the president!”
“Did Robert Mueller try to overthrow the president of the United States?” Berman asked her.
“I’m specifically talking about Democrats in the media who helped perpetuate this absurd lie!” she replied.
“Were Democrats and the media part of the Mueller investigation, were they part of his team of investigators?” he asked.
“They were among the people who helped make that possible, that pushed this narrative that created this entire spectacle in the first place!” she said, before pivoting to attack former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
At this point, Berman shut her argument down.
“James Clapper went on TV and made crystal clear that he had seen no evidence of collusion,” she said. “The investigation, as you know, Sarah, was started after conversations that George Papadopoulos had. The investigation was begun back then and Robert Mueller, in this report… finds two large areas where Russia did try to interfere!”
