Sarah Sanders: Trump ‘Obviously… Doesn’t Believe the Entire Justice Department is Part of’ Deep State

In her first briefing of 2018, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders a Tuesday morning Tweet in which President Donald Trump made reference to what he evidently views as the “Deep State Justice Dept.”

Responding to a query from ABC’s Cecilia Vega, Sanders clarified that the president does not think the whole of the Justice Department can be classified as deep state.

“Obviously he doesn’t believe the entire Justice Department is part of that,” Sanders said. “One of the things the president has done is appoint Christopher Wray at the FBI because he wants to change the culture of that agency. And he thinks he’s the right person to do that.”
