Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani came out and told the foaming at the mouth media that no one on Trump’s legal team or his administration had lied after certain new information came to light.
“I don’t think anybody’s lying,” Giuliani said on CNN. “I think a mistake was made.”
Look, stuff happens and when Trump’s lawyers sent a strong letter to Bob Mueller they were clearing up a lot of mistakes the media made in its reporting.
They also drew lines in the sand and dared Mueller to cross them.
But mainly, they needed to correct the record – and when that was leaked to the media, the media went bonkers.
Today they used it as a cudgel to hammer Sarah Sanders and accuse her of lying.
CNN reporter, Josh Dawsey, desperate to find something worse than a simple mistake kept pestering and claiming that Sarah Sanders herself was lying.
Look, her job is to tell the media what they need to know and not one word more – just like all those who came before her.
Did they call Dana Perino a liar? How about Robert Gibbs?
Nope, only Sarah gets this treatment.
But today Sarah was not taking it. And she let Dawsey have it.
From the Hill:
“I think you all know I’m an honest person who works extremely hard to provide you with accurate information at all times…”
“Frankly I think my credibility is probably higher than the media’s and I think in large part that’s because you guys spend more of your time focused on attacking the president than reporting the news,” Sarah said.

Good job, Sarah.
