Sarah Sanders Grilled Over Michael Cohen Payments: Is Trump Embarrassed by This ’Swampy Behavior’?

Sarah Huckabee Sanders did not give much comment on the big Michael Cohen news, but that didn’t stop reporters from grilling the White House press secretary on the serious allegations the President’s lawyer is facing.

AT&T and Novartis have confirmed payments to Cohen’s consulting firm––with reports emerging today that Novartis had been promised access by Cohen to the Trump administration. And, of course, there’s the $500,000 payment from a company linked to a Russian oligarch.

A number of reporters pressed Huckabee Sanders on what “insight” into the Trump administration Cohen could have provided and on whether the President himself is “embarrassed” by Cohen’s “swampy behavior.”

Huckabee Sanders repeatedly deferred and said this has “nothing to do with the White House.”
