Sarah Huckabee Sanders admitted to Mueller that she lied about James Comey being unpopular among FBI agents.

That was Sanders in May of 2017 claiming that she personally knew of “countless” FBI agents who were glad that Comey had been fired.

But guess what? That was bullshit.

Courtesy of Mother Jones:

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders produced one sizable whopper in May 2017, in the aftermath of FBI Director James Comey’s firing, when she suggested that he was unpopular among the bureau’s rank and file.

After a reporter claimed that a “vast majority” of agents supported Comey, Sanders replied, “Look, we’ve heard from countless members of the FBI that say very different things.”

That response was “not founded on anything,” Mueller’s office concluded after interviewing Sanders, who told special counsel staffers she had made a “slip of the tongue.” The report also says she spoke to the president after that press conference and he told her she did a “good job and did not point out any inaccuracies in her comments.”

The lack of evidence for this sentiment didn’t stop Trump from latching on to it in an interview with Lester Holt of NBC News a day later. He said the FBI was in “virtual turmoil” under Comey.

I think most of us just take it for granted that when anybody in this White House speaks that it is likely a lie, but this is still an incredibly audacious lie to have told publicly.

Sanders and Trump were clearly counting on the fact that the FBI would keep their mouths closed, and not call them out on this. 

And essentially that is what happened. 

Update: Huckabee Sanders was called out on this false statement in an interview today. Get a load of this attempt at spin. 

She’s not a robot, like the Democrats? What?

    Worst nightmare ever: getting stuck behind her at at all-meat buffet. She winds up and just starts swooping everything in and out and all over the place.
    She turns beauty and joy into smoldering shit. Thanks to the who “Jesus is my savior” fiction.

    It looks like she dabs gravy behind her ears, for a quick taste throughout the day to keep her smokestacks working.

      Why does she store her meals in her face, doesn’t she have refrigeration?

    “It was a flick of my tongue.” she said in her defense.

      Was that a “slip of the tongue” because of her forked tongue?

    Is it just me, or does she look like she’s always constipated?

    She needs a jaw alignment. Maybe Bristol could send her a coupon.

    You have the wrong video showing Sarah lying, Find the video of the day before when she first says it. Lawrence O’Donnell has the video which shows her reading this statement from a document on the podium … hardly a slip of the tongue, more like a Fake News made-up fact.
