WATCH: Sarah Sanders Asks if CNN is Guilty of ‘Collusion’

Sarah is not in the mood.

Published

Press Secretary Huckabee Sarah Sanders is not in the mood for the news media’s spin on Friday morning, in the wake of the arrest of Roger Stone, a longtime ally of President Donald J. Trump.

“I was a member of the campaign which is why I know there was — as I have said a dozen times, as the President said probably hundreds of times, there was no collusion, there was no wrongdoing by the President. What I also know is that outlets just like yours, CNN spent a significant time not only looking for information of Wikileaks but also reporting on it. Does that mean CNN is guilty of collusion?” Sanders asked CNN’s John Berman on “New Day.”

Berman did not answer Sanders’ question.

“The charges brought against Mr. Stone have nothing to do with the President. That’s what I’m clear on and that’s what I can tell you about today,” she said.

Stone was arrested by the FBI in a pre-dawn raid Friday morning and charged with making false statements, obstruction of justice, and witness tampering.

The crux of the investigation into Stone is that he sought “hacked documents related to Hillary Clinton’s campaign WikiLeaks would release during the 2016 election season.”

Stone himself never hacked anyone. In fact, the DNC may not even have been hacked – that is still not settled. The bottom line, to Sanders’ point, is that obtaining opposition research against a political foe is a normal campaign activity. Mueller’s team has spun up a process crime against Stone after investigating him for something that is not even a crime in the first place.
