Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Trump Jr. Meeting: The Only ‘Inappropriate’ Thing Here Is the Leaks

Sarah Huckabee Sanders got a number of questions at today’s off-camera briefing about Donald Trump Jr.‘s meeting with a Russian lawyer, saying it was a “very short meeting” with “no follow-up.”

“The only thing I see inappropriate about the meeting,” she added, “was the people that leaked the information on the meeting after it was voluntarily disclosed.”

CBS’ Major Garrett pressed her on the “blanket denials” the Trump administration has offered in in the past on the question of meetings with Russian officials.

Huckabee Sanders insisted “there was simply no collusion” despite what the media has said, but Garrett said this is a question about meetings and not collusion.

You can listen to her exchange with reporters above, via CNN.
