The Trump administration “already” knows there was “a high level of corruption” at the FBI, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said.
In an interview aired Sunday on NBC News’ “Meet The Press,” Sanders, with President Donald Trump on his trip to Japan, said Attorney General William Barr will “get to the bottom of it” in his investigation of the origins of the Russia investigation.
“[W]e already know that there was a high level of corruption that was taking place,” she said. “We've seen that in the [Inspector General] investigation that has already happened. There's a lot more there that we still need to know. And we're going to let the Attorney General do his job.”
Sarnders railed at the the “outrageous amount of corruption that took place at the FBI” as including lies and leaks.
“They were specifically working trying to take down the president, trying to hurt the president,” she said, adding we think Americans deserve the truth. The president's asked for that. And we should expect nothing less.”
