White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders carefully avoided questions this Wednesday instead changing the subject to the so-called “leakers” allegedly working within the West Wing.
During her latest appearance on Fox News, Sanders called it “disgusting” and “disloyal” to leak the details of a closed-door meeting to the news media and said the White House is “focused intensely” on removing those responsible.
“We fired people over leaking before — I’ve personally fired people over leaking before — and we certainly would be very willing to do so again,” Sanders explained to the hosts of “Fox and Friends.
The White House has been harshly criticized for its handling of the comments made by special assistant Kelly Sadler who claim that it didn’t matter how Senator John McCain voted on Trump’s CIA nominee because “he’s dying anyway.”
Sadler’s controversial remarks, were first reported by The Hill, after being uttered last Thursday during an internal discussion amongst the White House communications staff.
Trump and his staff are currently contending with demands from members of Congress to publicly apologize for Sadler’s remarks, however Sanders and others have indicated that there will be no public apology.
