Sanders Asked About Steve Bannon Talking to Mueller: 'We Can Certainly Handle It'
As congressional committees and Special Counsel Robert Mueller continue their respective Russia probes, the Trump administration is continuing to fully cooperate, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said a at press briefing on Wednesday.
She said the various investigations need to play out, but the White House remains consistent in its position that there was absolutely no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Wall Street Journal reporter Michael Bender pointed out that former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon agreed to be interviewed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team. Bender said some legal experts have suggested that means Mueller's probe could be ramping up as opposed to winding down.
On "Happening Now" on Wednesday, Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano suggested Bannon could be walking into a "perjury trap" with his interview with Mueller's team.
"Is the president prepared for this investigation to last into the months to come?" Bender asked.
"We've been dealing with this hoax for the better part of a year," Sanders said. "If we have to endure the ridiculousness for another month, we can certainly handle it."
"Do the American people deserve that? No, I don't think they do."
She repeated that there was "absolutely no collusion" and that the White House is not scared of what Bannon might tell Mueller.
