Sarah Sanders Reiterates ‘We Have No Intention of Firing the Special Counsel’ After New Trump Tweet
Over the weekend, President Trump again went after the Mueller investigation yet again, making people wonder if he was hinting at firing the special counsel.
James Comey illegally leaked classified documents to the press in order to generate a Special Council? Therefore, the Special Council was established based on an illegal act? Really, does everybody know what that means?

He also once again denounced the “Witch Hunt” yesterday.
Today Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked specifically about that above tweet and said this:
“As we’ve said many times before, we have no intention of firing the special counsel. We’ve been beyond cooperative with them. We’re continuing to cooperate with them. Turned over nearly a million pages in documents to the special counsel and have been cooperative.”
