Special counsel Robert Mueller's team has interviewed President Donald Trump's press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, she said Friday. The interview occurred around the time that Trump's former chief of staff John Kelly, was questioned by Mueller's team, NBC News reported. That interview reportedly occurred in early fall of 2018.

She perjured herself in the first 15 seconds of testimony.
Habitual liars cannot turn the lying off, exhibit A is the Anti-American Orange skidmark in the Whitehouse.

I think you turds missed the news this week where team Mueller is leaking that that have nothing outside of unrelated process crimes. I know we still have a bunch of willful idiots on here counting on Mueller to bring down the president, but the Mueller team is already leaking to the press to be ready for massive disappointment. We even have lawyers predicted that the report is such a nothingburger that it is unlikely to even be made public. The fact that the GOP wants it made public should send shivers down your spine. With a new AG in town, we finally get some justice in the country and end the 2 tier justice system set up under Obama.

When Trump is out of the White House, Sarah Huckabee Sanders' next gig is playing "Leah" in an off Broadway play called "Jacob."

Leah became Jacob's wife through a deception on the part of her father, Laban. In the Biblical account, Jacob works 7 years for Rachel's hand, only to lift the veil on his wedding day and find her butt ugly sister, Leah)

Manafort worked for Russia against America's interests. He's a traitor, legally defined or not.

Manaforts alleged crimes occurred a decade ago. You know that, so why pretend to act like it has anything to do with Russian collusion? Mueller has process crimes only and a decade old tax charge against Manafort. 2 years and that is all you have.

The crimes Manafort has been charged with may not be the only ones he has committed. We still don't know everything Mueller has, but we are starting to get hints:

Yeah, that is a process crime as discussed above. Again, no collusion and even Mueller's team is leaking that it will be a nothingburger.

Did you miss Junior admitting attempted conspiracy with the Russians?

I hope other posters will read through Maddow's tweet thread and decide for themselves.

"Again, no collusion"

I hope you aren't basing that on Burr's comments:

They are?

Lying to Federal authorities is a crime! It's the same "process crime" Bill Clinton was impeached and disbarred for. "It's not about the sex, he lied under oath"...

20 years in Federal Prison is (and that's just for one of his cases) quite the "nothingburger".

When did the "Law And Order" party decide that the rule of law was dispensable? And if everything is so innocent, why is everybody lying about it?

It was clearly collusion no matter what the biggest liar on DR claims.

20 years is due to a decade old tax scam, nothing more than that.

Process crimes vs heart of the Mueller investigation:

In Closed Hearing, a Clue About ‘the Heart' of Mueller's Russia Inquiry

According to the transcript, which was heavily redacted, Mr. Manafort and Mr. Kilimnik repeatedly communicated about a so-called peace plan for Ukraine starting in early August 2016, while Mr. Manafort was still running Mr. Trump's campaign, and continuing into 2018, months after Mr. Manafort had been charged by the special counsel's office with a litany of crimes related to his work in the country. The prosecutors claim that Mr. Manafort misled them about those talks and other interactions with Mr. Kilimnik.

Pressed by the judge at Monday's hearing to say why Mr. Manafort's alleged lies mattered, Mr. Weissmann gave a broad hint about the thrust of the investigation.

"This goes to the larger view of what we think is going on, and what we think is the motive here," Mr. Weissmann said. "This goes, I think, very much to the heart of what the special counsel's office is investigating."

"Mueller has process crimes only"

lying to the fbi is a crime. adding the word "process" to the front of it changes nothing.

no matter how many times you've heard it on fox and friends.

Whether or not Manafort was charged for working on Russia's behalf, he came to the campaign, for free, and the next thing you know the GOP platform no longer contained the condemnation of Russia for stealing Crimea from the Ukraine.

He wasn't the only one prioritizing Russia's interests over America's.

Her prison sentence should include mandatory visits from Jenny Craig. Her orange jumpsuit will be an XXXXXXL -- we can't afford to spend that kind of tax dollars. Or maybe put her in the pasture with the other cows. Mooooooo

If that report is not made public, whatever shreds of legitimacy Donald has as president are torn away. DONALD TRUMP would make the report public, if he is guiltless.

No sane, uncompromised man see Trump as guiltless.

In regards to Sarah, the easiest way to explain her weird behavior in public is to assume she has been instructed to lie, and is now so deep in criminality she lies for free, to save her ample butt.
