Sarah Huckabee Sanders had some questions of her own during her guest appearance on CNN this morning.
“We’ll let the courts make the decision,” she said. “A bigger question is: If this is the standard, will the same standard apply to people like Hillary Clinton, James Comey and [James] Clapper?”
Sarah’s question went completely over the head of the CNN host.
Sarah Sanders asks the correct question after Stone’s indictment:
When will the FBI surround the homes of & arrest, “Hillary Clinton, James Comey, James Clapper? People we know have also made false statements [to the FBI] – will the same standard apply?”

Longtime Trump associate Roger Stone was arrested Thursday night for one count of obstruction, five counts of false statements and one count of witness tampering as part of the larger special counsel Russia investigation. The FBI raided his home and “terrorized” his family, Stone said outside a Florida courthouse Friday. He told a crowd of hecklers he plans to plead not guilty to the alleged crimes.
Of course, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders expected the press pool to ask her for her reaction to Stone’s arrest. But she wasn’t a fan of how some reporters framed their inquires, particularly the individual who suggested that President Trump encouraged Stone to lie to Congress. More
Reporter: “Was the president encouraging false statements, obstruction, things that are charged in the indictment?”
Sanders: “That is probably one of the more ridiculous and insulting questions… frankly, it’s just insulting, it’s just not true” pic.twitter.com/SbHqQKceby

Comey is the one who said that he wouldn’t prosecute Hillary…and both lied to Congress. Noticing a trend yet? Is anyone else getting tired of nothing getting done? What are we supposed to do when we watch biased federal agencies punish political opponents while letting blatant criminals go scot free?
Mueller and the FBI need to be brought to justice! Their tactics and motives are unlawful in America! This is what our founding fathers fought against when they wrote the Bill of Rights and the Constitution! This is injustice. They protect the guilty by going after the innocent!
