Sarah Sanders says not conflict of interest Trump asked fire comey

President Donald Trump called Comey's firing a move necessary to restore the trust and confidence in the law enforcement agency. Ms. Sanders clearly has inherited some of her father's talents.

Spicer, pictured below, plans to skip Wednesday's daily press briefing too, so save your fan theories about "Dancing With the Stars" until tomorrow. But clarifying what led to Comey's firing does not explain how the buzz about Sean Spicer, bushes, and his future with the White House.

"You've still got the same people that would be carrying out that (FBI investigation), whether it's through the Department of Justice - that process continues, both, I believe, in the House and Senate committees, and I don't see any change or disruption there", Sanders told Fox News's Tucker Carlson Tuesday night.

The perception, according to multiple sources inside and close to the White House, is that Spicer has been "benched" during a critical week, following the president's termination of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.

Spicer said he's not aware of any of Rosenstein's superiors who might have directed him to do this - although he then said that such questions should be directed to Justice officials, not him. "A disaster", said another, who added that the president himself thought it was "handled poorly".

She became a senior adviser to Trump in 2016 after managing her father's presidential bid, which attracted just one delegate. This official said sending Sanders into the briefing room was the right call. Sanders said she doesn't think that it was inappropriate.

"I think that the point that I made, in respect to the tweet, is the president has no further comment on this", Spicer said, again refusing to take the opportunity to deny the allegation. She referenced former Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Senators Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), as well as Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other members of the Democratic Party.

"Just turn the lights off. Turn the lights off!" "Can you just turn that light off?" But the president's criteria for what he wants in a press secretary may be more limited - as CNN has previously reported, Trump watches the briefing nearly daily.

And the all-time No. 1 entry into his personal Hall of Shame was when he said: "You had someone as despicable as Hitler didn't even sink to using chemical weapons".
