Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Comey Firing and Russia Investigation: ‘It’s Time to Move On!’

Tonight on Fox News, Tucker Carlson and Sarah Huckabee Sanders had a far-ranging conversation about news coming out of the White House.

Notably, while discussing Donald Trump‘s choice to fire FBI director James Comey earlier today, Carlson asked the Principal Deputy White House Press Secretary, “So a lot of the analysis concerns the Russia investigation. How will the firing of Comey affect that?”

Come was, of course, helming the investigation into Trump’s possible Russian ties, but Huckabee Sanders didn’t find that relevant.

“I don’t think it affects it at all. In any capacity whatsoever, you’ve still got the same people that would be carrying out that, whether it’s through the Department of Justice, that process continues both — I believe — in the House and Senate committees. I don’t see any change or disruption there. I think the bigger point on that is, ‘My gosh, Tucker, when are they gonna let that go?’ It’s been going on for nearly a year. Frankly, it’s kinda getting absurd. There’s nothing there.”

She went on to insist that nothing has come from probes into Russian collusion, “it’s time to move on,” and, “frankly, it’s time to focus on the things the American people care about.”

Many Americans do, of course, care about the possibility of Russian interference in our election.
