So she just lied because she felt like it?

Mueller report fallout: Sarah Sanders says Trump never asked her to lie

Mueller's investigation notes several instances where President Trump pressured his top aides to lie or mislead. Sanders was asked whether Mr. Trump had ever asked her to lie.

"In the course of your time at the White House, has the president ever asked you to say something that you knew not to be true?" "CBS This Morning" co-host John Dickerson said.

"The president isn't asking people to break the law, isn't asking them to do anything that is dishonest," Sanders replied. "If the president wants to fire somebody, he does. You've seen him do it before. This isn't a president who is afraid to go against the system, he's not a president that's afraid to step out and speak out. And if he has a problem with someone or something he's gonna state that."


"That's not the question, Sarah," "CBS This Morning: Saturday" co-host Anthony Mason said.

"I answered it on the front end," Sanders said.

"So you're saying the president has never asked you to say anything you knew not to be true," Dickerson asked. "Correct," Sanders replied.

"And he's also never asked me to break the law. And when the president wants to do something and make a decision he does it. He's not somebody who sits around and ponders. I think that you guys have seen that day in and day out. One minute you're running stories that the staff can't control him. The next minute, everyone's saying 'Thank God the staff could control him.' You don't get to have it both ways."

5. Does any serious reporter think she'll answer this honestly?

Or think that she doesn't know how to handle the press?

14. He didn't have to ask her to lie...

She knew what he wanted her to say. That is why she still has a job. She lies for the Boss.
