Acosta to Sanders: ‘Are You Trying to Gin Up Your Own Russian Investigation’ with Uranium One?

CNN’s Jim Acosta pressed Sarah Huckabee Sanders at today’s White House press briefing about President Trump talking about Uranium One and how it was Hillary Clinton doing the actual colluding with Russia.

“Why did the President involve himself in the Uranium One investigation?” Acosta asked. “Are you trying to gin up your own Russia investigation to rival the one up on Capitol Hill? And where is the President’s evidence that Hillary Clinton colluded with the Russians?”

Huckabee Sanders said that the President has “pushed for transparency.”

Acosta asked again about the evidence of Clinton collusion and she said, “I think I’ve addressed that pretty thoroughly.”
